Barça target Lautaro Martinez could be benched by Inter Milan

The Argentine striker has struggled for form since the restart and Conte's patience with him is running low

Lautaro Martínez's "untouchable" tag at Inter Milan is in danger of falling off. The striker has struggled in recent weeks and faced greater criticism after missing a penalty in Inter's previous match against Bologna. There is even talk of the Argentine being on the bench for tonight's match against Hellas Verona.

The player, who is wanted by Barça, has failed to score in his last five matches and reports in Italy suggest Antonio Conte might opt for another system - with Lautaro. Many believe the interest from Barça is part of the reason the striker's form has dipped.

Lautaro's buyout clause of €111m expired on the 7th July but, according to Cadena SER, Barça and Inter both agreed to respect that price should they be unable to negotiate a deal this summer.

It'll be interesting to see what Conte does as pressure begins to mount on him - and Lautaro - ahead of the match against Bologna.
