Arsenal contacts the agent of classy Serie A attacker

Arsenal has been in contact with the representative of Inter Milan striker, Lautaro Martinez over a summer transfer, according to a report via Sun Sports.

The Gunners need to sign a striker before next season after letting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave in the January transfer window.

There are also uncertainties over the future of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah and this means more than one attacker could join the club when the transfer window reopens.

Martinez has been a target of the Gunners for some time now and they had an interest in him last summer. But Romelu Lukaku’s move to Chelsea prompted Inter Milan to keep the Argentinian.

He remains one of their key players, but they can sell him for the right price, and Arsenal has started working on a potential transfer for him when this window reopens.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Martinez won the league title with Inter Milan last season, and he made important contributions to their triumph, which is one reason they kept him.

It also means he has valuable experience in winning silverware and we need players with that in our dressing room.

He could easily be our main striker and take the many chances our midfielders create.

  1. I’ve watched him a few times, no doubt he’s very good. But I must say his numbers are not world class this season and the rumoured price is for world class players. A bit overrated

  2. For that price tag you expect a consistent goal scorer year after year. Not convinced he’s the striker to take us to challenging for PL title and trophies.

    Only my opinion, but club could better spend the rumored 70 million it would take to sign him.

  3. IMO this rumour has legs and I believe we WILL be trying to do a deal with Inter but at way below asking price.

    So will it happen then? Probably not, unless Inter vastly reduce the price. He turns 25 next August.
    A great number of players who have large asking prices will eventually BE SOLD AT MASSIVE DISCOUNTS.

    But I still think , on balance, we will fail to land MARTINEZ.

  4. Think he is more of a false nine, if we do sign him am almost sure we would end up signing an out and out striker

  5. I think he would fit our team like a glove – like others, not necessarily convinced he’d score a ton of goals as he hasn’t really done that before, but it could work if the AMs and wingers can keep scoring

  6. think this guy is kind of overrated. didnt want him last summer and no reason to be upset we didnt get him…

  7. It’s a no no for me, this is the EPL not Seria A,
    Give me a 30+ Lewandoski over Martinez.
