Inter have made Timo Werner their top target should Lautaro Martinez be sold to Barcelona at the end of the season.

The Blaugrana have been heavily linked with a move for the Argentine, though so far the two parties have been unable to reach an agreement on the details of the transfer.

Lautaro has a €111 million release clause inserted in his contract, but La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Inter would settle for a deal of €90m and one of Nelson Semedo, Junior Firpo or Jean-Clair Todibo.

However, the Catalan’s recent offer was only €80m – a fee deemed too low by the Nerazzurri – though that hasn’t stopped the Italian side from looking at potential replacements.

Topping the list is Werner, who has a release clause of €60m. Bild reports Chelsea and Manchester United have joined the mix to land his signature, though it’s believed the 24-year-old would rather join Liverpool instead.

Inter are confident they can make a strong push to land the striker, though talks likely won’t take off until Lautaro’s future is decided – with the Nerazzurri and Barcelona expected to continue negotiations until the end of May.
