Luis Suarez: Barcelona players will welcome Lautaro Martinez

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez admits he's a fan of Inter Milan ace Lautaro Martinez.

Barca are chasing a summer deal for the Argentina international, who many see as a long-term replacement for 33 year-old Suarez.

However, the Uruguayan is fully on board with Barca's push for Lautaro.

He told Mundo Deportivo: "Lautaro is a player who is growing enormously in Italy.

"He is a 9 who has spectacular movements and this shows the great attacker that he is. Players who come to fight for a place and help the team will always be welcome.

"We will always be better and that will strengthen the group."
