Inter want Griezmann

Barcelona could lose Antoine Griezmann to Inter Milan if they are to sign Lautaro Martinez in the summer.

The Argentine turns out to be the priority for the Catalans in the summer transfer window as they cite him as the heir to Luis Suarez's throne.

According to Daily Mail, Barcelona are reluctant to meet Martinez's entire release clause of €111m. Instead, they are willing to offload some players – Carles Alena, Philippe Coutinho and Jean-Clair Todibo – due to FFP regulations.

However, Nerazzurri would accept only the French striker Griezmann from the Catalans in the exchange.

The 28-year-old has proved a decent signing for the Blaugrana this term, having found the net 13 times in all competitions and also set up four more.

The French World Cup winner was signed from Atletico Madrid in the summer after the Catalans triggered his release clause of €120m.

Barca have also been deprived of attacking options at the moment due to the injuries to Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.
