​FC Barcelona are desperate to sign ​Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez in the summer transfer window, but the Catalan outfit is struggling to meet the release clause needed, according to Sky Sports Italia (via ​Daily Mail).

Lautaro Martinez, who has had a prolific season with ​Serie A side Inter Milan, has been linked with a move to FC Barcelona as the Spanish side look set to bolster the squad this summer. However, they are struggling to put together £97m needed to trigger his release clause.

Clubs have been hit financially due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has stalled footballing activities, and that appear to have taken a toll on Barcelona. 

Nonetheless, Barcelona are pondering ways to bring in the striker they desperately need, and they are willing to add players to the deal as makeweights, in a bid to lower the cash, according to Sky Sports Italia.

However, Barcelona have not yet been able to put together a proposal that convinces Inter Milan. I Nerazzurri gaffer Antonio Conte also seems to be not keen on the players Barcelona have included in the proposal. 

Meanwhile, Lautaro Martinez has also attracted interests from Barcelona’s arch-rival ​Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain. However, the current crisis will presumably make it harder for clubs to make high-profile signings in the summer transfer window.
