Arsenal are on the market looking for a new centre-forward and Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez is reportedly on our wish list.
The Telegraph revealed yesterday that Arsenal have enquired about signing the 23-year-old Argentine international. Martinez was directly involved in 30 goals last season, and he would be a sensational signing for any club this summer.
Arsenal are likely to sell Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette in the coming weeks. That will create a void in our attack, and Mikel Arteta will need to bring in someone brilliant to join forces with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka.
Martinez, labelled as a ‘spectacular‘ player by Lionel Messi, would be an incredible addition at Arsenal. However, Inter will surely demand a fortune for him, with some sources claiming that a £70 million offer may be required to get him out of the San Siro. (Read here)
That will likely be beyond our reach this summer, but Arsenal fans think Edu can use Hector Bellerin to get this deal done in the coming weeks.
Arsenal fans think Bellerin plus cash will be enough to sign Lautaro Martinez
Bellerin has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan over the last few weeks. The Spaniard is desperate to join the Nerazzurri as well, with TMW claiming earlier this month that he has agreed to reduce his wages by almost 50 per cent to secure this move.
If Arsenal want Martinez and if Inter are keen to sign Bellerin, a player plus cash deal could well be a possibility. Arsenal fans are urging Edu to explore this option in the coming weeks.
