Barcelona are following Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez closely ahead of a possible summer move, according to Racing president Victor Blanco.

Martinez joined Inter Milan from Racing in 2018 and is being tipped to move on again in the summer after a fine spell at the San Siro.

Blanco says he’s been talking to people in the know who have confirmed that the Catalan giants are keeping a close eye on the 22-year-old.

“I’ve spoken to the people around Lautaro, to those who advise him, and they’ve told me that Barcelona are following him closely,” he said.

“We [at Racing] all want him to be happy and play where he really wants to play.

“I’m sure he will make a decision for his own good.”

The most rumors recent have suggested Barca are closing in on Lautaro but still need to come up with a deal that Inter are happy with. The Catalans don’t want to pay full price but are reportedly willing to include a couple of players in the transfer.
