According to Italian outlet Sempreinter, Barcelona have identified Inter Milan midfielder Sensi as their transfer target next summer.

The report also states that Sensi’s fellow team-mate Lautaro Martinez is also on the Barca’s wishlist.

Sensi, who is bound to Sassuolo, is currently enjoying a great loan spell under Antonio Conte, racking up 3 goals and 2 assists in 8 games. He also registered his first goal for the Italy national team in the Euro Qualifiers.

The 24-year-old has become a key cog in Conte’s midfield as his absence on the field played a big part in the Nerazzurri’s Champions League exit. The Italian is expected to return after the winter break after sustaining an injury to his adductor in the Serie A fixture against Juventus.

Elsewhere, Barca are looking to strengthen their midfield as Arturo Vidal has been linked with a move to Inter while Carles Alena is being pursued by Getafe.

The Blaugrana are currently leading the La Liga table and will face local rivals Espanyol after the winter break.
