Barcelona are reportedly set to make one “final offer” for Inter striker Lautaro Martinez.

According to Goal, the Argentine remains their top target, despite the recent rumors about Memphis Depay, and they fancy one last go at signing the 23-year-old.

Yet the report doesn’t provide any details about the planned offer or even how Barcelona are suddenly planning on financing the deal.

Instead there’s plenty of talk about how Luis Suarez needs to go before the Catalans can make their move. The striker earns €14 million a year and Barca could opt to pay him off.

However, Goal are also reporting that Suarez has now agreed a three-year deal with Juventus. The Serie A champions are said to be negotiating a fee with Barcelona.

It’s not quite as easy as all that though. Suarez also needs to pass an Italian language exam next week in order to gain citizenship before he can complete his move.
