Barcelona interested in Lautaro Martínez: rumour has it

Lautaro Martínez has impressed at the Copa América and the forward could end up being team-mates with Lionel Messi at more than just international level.

Martínez, 21, has scored in back-to-back games to lead Argentina into a semi-final against rivals and hosts Brazil at the Copa.

The Inter forward seems to have caught the eye of Barcelona, who have enquired about his services.


According to Radio La Red, Barcelona have contacted Martínez's agent to express their interest.

A move would see Martínez team up with Messi – who is yet to hit top form at the Copa América – at club level.

But Barça are also linked with moves for Atlético Madrid star Antoine Griezmann and PSG forward Neymar, so Martínez may just be a back-up option.


- Neymar is heavily linked with a return to Barcelona , but it seems Paris Saint-Germain may not part with the star so easily. Telefoot report PSG are still unwilling to let Neymar go.

- Tottenham may finally get their man. The Daily Mail reports Spurs are close to an agreement to sign midfielder Tanguy Ndombélé from Lyon in a deal worth up to 71.7m euros.

- Manchester United appear to be leading the race for Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes. Liverpool and Spurs have distanced themselves from the Portugal international, according to the Daily Express, and La Gazzetta dello Sport say United have had a 39.2m-euro bid rejected.

- Leonardo Bonucci continues to be linked with a Juventus exit ahead of the Serie A champions' expected signing of Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt. An apparent target for PSG, Bonucci has also become an option for Manchester City, according to The Sun.
