Barcelona continue to be linked with a move for Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez, and Monday brings news that Junior Firpo is the latest player rumored to be included in the deal.

Sport report that Barcelona are already looking to offload the full-back despite having only signed him from Real Betis in August 2019 for €18 million plus €12 million in add-ons.

The report reckons Barcelona are willing to sell for €20m and have already had plenty of interest from clubs in Italy such as as Roma, Napoli and and Torino.

However, they also think they could use him in the deal to sign Martinez as he is also liked by Inter Milan.

Interesting stuff, although it’s also worth noting that reports in Italy have suggested Inter have no interest in including players in the deal and only want cash.
