Arsenal boosted as Inter Milan line-up replacement for target

Inter Milan are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Lazio forward Joaquin Correa this summer as a replacement for Arsenal target Lautaro Martinez.

The Argentine forward scored 17 goals in Serie A last term as his side won their first scudetto in over a decade, but his club’s finances have been highlighted this summer.

Inter have already parted ways with manager Antonio Conte in order to save a few pennies, as well as selling Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain for a sizeable fee, but that doesn’t appear to have been enough to completely overcome their difficulties.

Arsenal now appear to be looking to take advantage of their position by targeting a deal for striker Martinez, and Inter appear to be open to the idea, so much so that they are already claimed to be eyeing a potential replacement in case their asking price can be met.

Lazio’s Correa was linked with a move to the Emirates this summer also, but such talk has gone quiet of late, and his future could now play a role in our signing of Lautaro.

Would Martinez be a huge boost to Arsenal’s first-team? Would he be best suited to playing at CF or as an option playing in behind?

    That will a good move if it materialises.

  2. RSH says:

    dont see this one happening. We’d definitely need to offload Lacazette first and I dont see many buyers.

  3. Longbenark says:

    Martinelli can do the job, if we do buy a Centre Forward, he has to be good in the air,

    Against EPL defenders, he doesn’t have a chance,

    Let’s get Isak/David onuachu.

    In speaking with Inter Milan about Bellerin, Arsenal enquired on Lautaro Martinez. 23yo striker (contract 2023) is for sale & #AFC thought to have mentioned Lacazette, but #Inter need cash + hope it helps them keep Chelsea target Lukaku

    Seems there is genuine interest so maybe we should offer £50m+Hector on a permanent deal or £30m+Laca and Bellerin

    Martinez doesn’t want to play for Arsenal. Move on.

      Not so apparently.

      Martinez is said to now be “open” to the move to Arsenal.

      Milan had a bumper new contract on the table for Martinez that has since been withdrawn, due to their financial position.

      We would double his wages, plus could use Bellerin as bait.

      The above is gathering pace , so much so that if Spuds lose Kane, they are looking to “hijack” our move.

      So the story goes ?

    if the move is successful, it will be delightful! push hard!

    if we serious about top 4 we will get him

  10. Jasa says:

    Interesting buying and it does show the statement of intent . Please Please Please bring him to emirates.

    Martinez in his playing style is like Kün Agüero and we know what he did for City over a decade. He is too good to join the gunners. The guy is quick, he holds up the ball, he scores from outside of the box, his link up is exceptional. He is everything we need in our forward line. Remember Liverpool and Man City are dominating the EPL with short strikers. The only tall striker I would highly rate is Kane and there is no way we can sign him. Arsenal fans should be happy and wait to see if the deal goes through
