According to The Sun, Barcelona hope to beat Chelsea to the signing of Martinez by offering Antoine Griezmann to Inter Milan.

Inter Milan are reluctant to let the 22 year old striker leave the San Siro but Barcelona are hoping to tempt Inter Milan by offering Griezmann.

Meanwhile, Lautaro Martinez’s agent Beto Yaque has confirmed Chelsea have contacted him over the transfer of the Inter Milan striker ahead of the summer transfer window.

“We don’t know what will happen, we pay attention to what the media say about it. It’s true that Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and City called me, but we don’t know if they have any kind of agreement with Inter,” Yaque told Spanish news outlet Clarin.
