Arsenal will need £85m to sign their striker target

Arsenal is one of the clubs interested in a move for Inter Milan striker, Lautaro Martinez.

The Argentinian has developed into one of Europe’s more lethal attackers and he helped Inter to win Serie A last season.

A financial struggle hit the Italians and they sold off some of their players.

His strike partner, Romelu Lukaku, was sold to Chelsea for a record fee and they also sold Achraf Hakimi to PSG.

Martinez entered the eyes of other clubs including Arsenal, who are struggling to get goals from the boots of the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

The Gunners wanted to sign Martinez, but Inter insisted on keeping him after losing his strike partner.

He is now in line to sign a new long-term contract with them.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Inter is in talks to get him on a new contract soon.

The new deal will not prevent him from changing clubs exactly, however, it will make it harder for teams to sign him.

The report claims the new contract will have a release clause worth around £85m and Arsenal or his other suitors will have to pay that to sign him.

    Not sure if suited to EPL.

    Will often get injured. Unless a system as City or Reds, i can’t imaginé him, not at Arsenal for sure. He fights for titles every year, in CL; Arsenal is in relegation wagon.

    Wont change until Arteta sacked for Conté.

    Unfortunatly it did not happen nor will til next window. No way to make it to EL by then; not sure Conté would come in such a mess with no Europe football, just fight for survival.

    We seem to do it all wrong, backwards like.

    Edu imposes Arteta, both must be sack or he will keep him…

    Lautaro 🤔, Never, we need one that would lead the line, he’ll be bullied by EPL defenders, we need a fast, tall, strong and quick feet striker, one like Isak, Dusan ,Youssef or even Calum Wilson ,

    Only then can we see the best of Aubameyang and Pepe.

      Calum Wilson is not esp tall nor esp strong. And he is not our level either, so forget him!

    Highly unlikely Martinez will come to Arsenal unless Arsenal make it to the CL next season. Also I doubt whether the Arsenal way of playing will suit him, normally at Inter they play with 2 strikers upfront.
