Arsenal target is prepared to fight against his employer to secure a Premier League move

Lisandro Martinez is prepared to force his move away from Ajax as Manchester United and Arsenal continue to chase his signature.

The Argentinian defender was one of the finest players in the Dutch top flight last season, and he has been tipped to leave them.

Arsenal registered their interest in his signature very early, before United joined the race.

Ajax is holding out for a huge transfer fee, considering that his main suitors are England’s rich clubs.

However, that could scupper the move, and the player is now looking to take matters into his own hands.

The Mirror reports that his teammates believe he will do whatever it takes to force a move away from the Netherlands’ champions.

They see him as very determined to move to the Premier League and he will not allow his club to stop that dream.

Just Arsenal Opinion

United seems to be leading us in the race for Martinez’s signature now, but they haven’t signed him yet.

The Argentinian will happily make the move to the Emirates if we reach an agreement with Ajax.

To achieve that, we must be prepared to pay more money than United, and that decision should be easy if Mikel Arteta considers him a game-changing signing.

  1. Too much money for a backup player, unless he will start at DM. Unlikely to unseat Tierney, and Martinez too slow for LB.

    5’9 CB in PL is a disaster waiting to happen, so step aside and let Utd. Fork over the 45 million.

  2. Spot on, Durand. This guy is over-priced and not that useful. We should buy Grimaldo instead as backup for Tierney (he is even good enough to bench Tierney). And use the surplus to buy a serious box-to-box midfielder or a top-notch defensive midfielder.

    Let manutd have him …

  3. No club should want a player who behaves that way. One day, it will be the new club’s turn.

    That’s if these reports are true of course, it could be another load of made-up journalistic nonsense on a slow news day.

  4. Pity Mikel, his two year stint was tarnished with trouble makers, or else if all were docile and well behaved off the pitch and showed their passion on the pitch, we would have been EL champs and maybe top 3. We do not need another trouble maker wanting to force a move, if he were that good why are Barca or Bayern or City not moving for him? Over to the next target.

  5. The price for Lisandro could comfortably get 2 players, even sterling was got from QPR,there are rear gems at giveaway price in Portugal 🇵🇹, South America, Africa and even in England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 championship level,
    IMO Lisandro can go to Man United, while we can rejuvenate wan-bisaka and get Grimaldo and possibly add a CDM,
    Just my thoughts 💭

  6. I don’t know why these stories are still written when we have clearly distanced ourselves from Martinez and are actively pursuing other options like Grimaldo.

    1. Thanks for this comment. We wouldn’t to know about a player that has all the signs he’s not coming our way ….. not worthy our time at all

    2. There is a reason we want Martinez and it is a different reason to Grimaldo. We are still persuing Martinez but utd are distinct favourites. We have not distanced ourselves from the deal and if we dont get Martinez, Grimaldo wont be his direct replacement. If we sign Grimaldo it is because we couldn’t get our prefered target.
