- Arturo Vidal is named as the likeliest option to be swapped for the Argentinian.
- Rakitic, Firpo and Umtiti could be other options while Inter ask for Arthur.
- However, neither Barca nor the Brazilian midfielder consider potential exit.
Thursday's edition of Barcelona-based newspaper Diario Sport appears with a telling headline 'Lautaro bargain'. The source provides a crucial update on the Catalans' pursuit of Inter's striker Lautaro Martinez.
Apparently, Barca consider including players in the deal which the Nerazzurri have already sanctioned.
Inter, however, would opt for Arthur. Barcelona, for their part, are unwilling to part ways with the Brazilian midfielder. Moreover, he doesn't want to leave either.
Sport add that Barcelona believe Lautaro's €111million release clause to be too high. That's why the Catalans hope to negotiate with Inter a possibility of a more affordable deal.
Meanwhile, on Monday, another Italian top source Gazzetta dello Sport revealed that Inter rejected Barcelona's €70m+Vidal+Semedo initial offer for Lautaro.
Lautaro has long been on Barca's radar. The club view him as the best option to replace Luis Suarez. The Argentine has scored 16 goals and recorded four assists for Inter this season.
