Barcelona remain open to sign Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez, but the Serie A giants will ask for Antoine Griezmann in return.

Barcelona have a “backup plan” if they can’t land Martinez, however. If that happens, they would focus their efforts in making a move for Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak.

One player that could leave Barcelona in the coming months is Nelson Semedo, as Manchester City might re-ignite their interest in the Portugal international ahead of the 2020-21 season.

Liverpool and Tottenham are competing to sign Olympiakos defender Kostas Tsimikas, although The Reds are believed to be front-runners to land him.
