Spurs eyeing Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo: reports

Rio de Janeiro, April 23 (IANS) Barcelona''s Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo has attracted interest from both Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan.

Spurs are willing to make an all-cash offer or include a player in a deal for the 23-year-old during the European summer transfer window, Xinhua news agency quoted Gazeta Esportiva as reporting on Wednesday.

It added that Inter could pursue Arthur as a makeweight in a deal that would see Argentinian striker Lautaro Martinez move to the Camp Nou.

After an impressive debut season with the Blaugrana, Arthur has endured a frustrating 2019-20 campaign with injuries and inconsistent form limiting him to just 23 matches across all competitions.

Earlier this week, the former Gremio player said he wanted to see out his Barcelona contract, which runs until June 2024.

"It would make any player proud to be linked with a club like Inter, but I''m only thinking about Barcelona," Brazil''s Lance newspaper had quoted Arthur as saying.

"I''m very happy both at the club and in the city and, honestly, I can see myself staying here for many more years."
