Messi Praises Lautaro Martinez amidst Speculation of the Striker Moving to Barcelona


As the Inter hero continues to be tied to Barcelona, Lautaro Martinez has been called an “impressive striker” by Lionel Messi. This has further fueled the fire to rumours of a move to the side of La Liga.

Martinez has been linked to Barca for many months, scoring 16 goals in 31 games this season for Inter.

“If I’m honest, I don’t know very well whether talks have been going on or are going on right now, I have no idea,” Messi told Mundo Deportivo. “I believe I’ve already said that Lautaro is an amazing striker, and I know he’s a really complete forward.”

While Messi says he is uncertain whether rumours are real, the Barca star says he will be happy to play at the Camp Nou with his countryman:

“He’s strong, he dribbles well, he scores goals, he knows how to defend the ball … but well, we’re going to have to see what’s going on with him and other players at last.”
