Barcelona could be about to resurrect their interest in Inter striker Lautaro Martinez ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Argentine, who was heavily linked with a move to the Camp Nou last year, is back on the agenda, according to RAC1.

New president Joan Laporta and his board are said to be “seriously considering” going back for Lautaro even though Dortmund’s Erling Haaland remains the dream.

We all know that landing Haaland will be tough, because of his price, Barca’s debts and the fierce competition for his signature, and so it seems alternative targets are being sought.

Free agents Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay have already been mentioned, but it seems that Martinez could also be a possibility.

The thinking seems to be that Barca may be able to afford Martinez this time around because Inter are also in a bit of financial trouble and may need to sell a key player to balance the books.
