Barcelona are reportedly well placed to conclude a deal for Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez, providing that Junior Firpo moves in the opposite direction.

Barcelona have reportedly made significant progress in their bid to sign Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

At the beginning of this week, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu suggested that negotiations for the Argentina international had been put on hold.

However, according to SER, the two parties have reached a compromise over what it will take for a deal to be concluded.

As well as the Catalan giants paying €70m (£63.36m), Inter want to secure the services of left-back Junior Firpo.

The report claims that the Italian outfit are happy to accept that the 23-year-old will be priced at €41m (£37.11m), effectively taking the whole package to €111m (£100m).

Nevertheless, at a time when they are eager to sell several other players, it is unclear whether Barcelona are currently in a position to fulfil their end of the bargain.
