Reports have hinted they’re close to signing Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

But the Frenchman isn’t the only attacker in their sights.

As per Radio La Red, Barca want to bring in Martinez.

The 21-year-old has dazzled at the Copa America, scoring twice during his nation’s journey to the semi-final.

And the Argentinian bagged nine times in an impressive campaign for Inter last term.

Radio La Red claim Barca are ready to pay €112m (£100m) to bring Martinez to the Nou Camp.

Inter would be in line to make a tremendous profit having paid just €30m (£26.9m) for him in 2018.

However, the Italians are expected to play hardball in an effort to keep Martinez.

New boss Antonio Conte is reportedly prepared to keep him and would preferably lose Mauro Icardi.

The deal could hinge on Inter’s approach for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.
