Barcelona Target Sociedad Defender Inigo Martinez

Barcelona are keen on securing the services of promising young central defender Inigo Martinez who helped Real Sociedad claim the final spot for Champions League next season.

After experiencing no luck in the way of bringing in defenders, Barcelona have turned their attention towards 22-year old Inigo Martinez

The Catalans are prepared to let Gerard Deulofeu leave the club on loan to Sociedad to help get a deal over the line.

Barcelona have targeted other big name defenders such as Thiago Silva, David Luiz and Mats Hummels but Martinez could prove to be the best signing of them all if they go ahead with the move.

The Spain under-21 international has amassed 41 appearances in all competitions this season with 4 goals to his name, three of which came from headers.
