Barcelona sporting director Eric Abidal hints that his club could move for Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

Barcelona sporting director Eric Abidal has suggested that the Spanish champions are considering a move for Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

The Catalan giants are widely expected to swoop for a new striker in next summer's transfer window as Luis Suarez prepares to enter the latter stages of his career.

Martinez has been strongly linked with a move to Camp Nou in recent months, and Abidal has hinted that the Argentina international is a target for his club.

"He is a complete player, I think he is performing at a great level," Abidal told Mundo Deportivo. "He is a player we know, there are other players who also have a lot of quality.

"I know Barca, I know what adaptation is like, but I don't pay much attention to the player who plays every weekend, I look at others."

The 22-year-old, who is also said to be interesting Manchester United and Manchester City, has scored eight times in 16 appearances for Antonio Conte's side during the 2019-20 campaign.

Inter are believed to value the former Racing Club attacker in the region of £96m.
