New Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman wants the club to sign five or six players, but as AS relays, he knows he wouldn’t be realistic to expect such an expenditure spree in this club’s financially challenging moment. Hence, he identified three names as his primary targets.
The Catalan club has long tried to sign Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez and the striker is currently keen on making the move, but Inter clearly doesn’t want to let him go for anything less than €111 million – the release clause set out in his deal. The 22-year-old Argentinean has recently been on fine form for the Nerazzurri, and has played a major role in their quest for glory in the Europa League.
The other two are Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek and Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.
