Inter Milan reportedly want Barcelona to include Arthur in any potential deal to take Lautaro Martinez to the Camp Nou.

Tuttosport reckon that the Nerazzurri are fully expecting a Barcelona approach for Martinez over the summer and value him at €150 million.

His big price tag is likely to prove a problem for the Spanish champions, but they may be able to get the price down by throwing in a player.

Previous reports have suggested that Inter are pretty keen on Arturo Vidal or Ivan Rakitic, but the latest report states that actually Arthur is the man Antonio Conte wants.

The Brazilian has had a bit of a mixed second season at Barca.He started the season strongly but missed a big chunk of the campaign due to injury and has only made 12 starts in La Liga.

It’s not known if Barca would be willing to let Arthur go after just two seasons, but Quique Setien has praised him as “an extraordinary footballer who understands everything.”
