Barcelona are reportedly back in the market for Inter striker Romelu Lukaku ahead of the summer transfer window. The Belgian had been linked with a switch to Camp Nou last summer, but opted to stay at Inter instead.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Ronald Koeman is eager to add Lukaku to his side, as he looks to boost his attacking ranks. Barcelona were strongly linked with Lukaku's team-mate Lautaro Martinez, but they consider the former Manchester United man to be a more realistic target.

However, Inter have made their position clear on their talisman, who has scored 42 goals in 62 Serie A games since making the switch in 2019. Manchester City have also been linked to Lukaku, with Pep Guardiola eyeing a replacement for Sergio Aguero, who is out of contract at the end of the current season.

Barcelona currently find themselves in the midst of major financial troubles, and reports claim Antonio Conte's side won't accept less than a fee north of €100m for the 27-year-old. Inter are keen on keeping Lukaku at the club as they look to win their first Serie A title this season since 2010.
