Barcelona to swap Griezmann for Inter Milan's Martinez

Barcelona are set to be offered Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez in the coming weeks in exchange for French forward Antoine Griezmann.

That's according to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport who have stated that Inter Milan are still chasing a player from the Catalan club to swap with their star 22-year-old forward after former negotiations reached no successful conclusion.

The report says that Inter plan on parting company with Martinez, but that Barcelona cannot at this moment in time afford his €111 million release clause. It's possible that Griezmann's potential swap with Martinez could be a simple exchange with no additional fee for either club, though the former Atleti striker's current wages at Barcelona could be a potential stumbling block.

Griezmann has made 37 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring 14 goals. Martinez can better that tally, though, with 19 goals scored in 32 games for Inter. And, just to throw a spanner in the works, The Sun claims that Manchester City will beat out competition from Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona to land him.
