Lautaro Martinez could become a big name in and around Barcelona in the coming months in terms of a potential move to the Spanish champions.

After another good performance against Barça in the Champions League this week, and knowing that the club have already asked about his availability, it now seems that Inter aren't closing the door on a possible exit. However, it's also true that they will try and convince him to stay.  

In that sense, Giuseppe Marotta, the Italian club's general director, spoke about Lautaro's case with Sport Mediaset after the 2-1 loss against Barça on Tuesday. 

"We're Inter and we don't necessarily need to sell anyone," he said. "We want to grow with important young players like Lautaro and Romelu Lukaku. 

"If Lautaro remains with us, we will be happy. He's connected with us at the moment. If he wants to take another path, we will assess the situation." 

Remember that Lautaro and Inter are currently in talks over a new deal. His current terms expire in 2023 and there's an 111 million euro release clause.
