Lautaro Martinez: Manchester United ready to battle Barcelona for signing of Argentine striker

- Lautaro Martinez's performance has caught Ole Gunner Solskjaer's interest and the striker may soon land at Old Trafford

- Since the departure of Lukaku and Alexi Sanchez, Solskjaer has been short of options in the attack line

- Man United are now willing to battle Barcelona for the signature of the Argentine who already has seven goals in 13 appearances for Inter

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing Lautaro Martinez as Ole Gunner Solskjaer hopes to bring in the in-form Inter Milan striker to reinforce his attack-line.

With Marcos Rashford and Anthony Martial the only two viable options in the front-line for the Reds, Solskjaer is considering bringing in the Argentine who has become a sensation in Italy, DailyMail reports.

Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez left Old Trafford in the summer transfer which has left the Norwegian manager with limited strikers.

Manchester United are now set to rival Barcelona for the signature of the highly-rated Martinez, though Inter would not let go of the striker unless the Reds pay a whopping €111million (£96m).
