Barcelona will have to pay £34m if they want to sign Lazio centre-back Luiz Felipe this summer, according to a report.

Barcelona will reportedly have to pay €40m (£34m) if they want to sign Lazio centre-back Luiz Felipe during this summer's transfer window.

The Spanish champions are expected to be in the market for a new central defender this summer due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of Samuel Umtiti.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Quique Setien's side have identified Felipe as a potential signing, but the Catalan giants will have to pay €40m (£34m) to land the Brazilian.

The 23-year-old, who joined Lazio from Ituano in August 2016, has made 23 appearances for his Italian club during the 2019-20 campaign, including 19 in Serie A.

Felipe is yet to be capped at senior level by Brazil but has previously represented his national side at both Under-20 and Under-23 level.

Barca also continue to be linked with Lautaro Martinez but are allegedly reluctant to meet the Inter Milan forward's €113m (£98m) release clause.
