Inter to ask for Griezmann

Inter could ask Barcelona for Antoine Griezmann in any potential deal for Lautaro Martinez, reports Tuttosport.

Martinez is having his breakout season with the Nerazzurri, and has scored 16 goals in all competitions.

Speculation has been rife that the 22-year-old would like to join the Catalan side to play alongside Lionel Messi.

Martinez has a release clause of €111m, valid only for clubs outside of Italy, however it’s believed that Barcelona aren’t considering paying that sum due to FFP.

Tuttosport claims that the La Liga outfit will offer Inter a host of players in order to drive the cost down.

Players such as Arturo Vidal, Carles Alena, Philippe Coutinho and Jean-Clair Todibo could be exchanged.

However, the Turin daily suggests that Inter would demand Griezmann in any potential deal.

The 28-year-old only signed for Barcelona last summer, but his move hasn’t clicked as well as many felt it would.

The Frenchman has only scored 12 goals from 32 appearances so far this season.

Inter could offer Griezmann an escape route.

Martinez meanwhile has shown no indication of a willingness to leave San Siro.

La Gazzetta dello Sport also claims that should the Argentine leave in the summer, the club would target Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
