Manchester United wants to hijack Arsenal’s move for Argentine star

Lisandro Martinez is one of the players Arsenal has attempted to sign in the last few days as their summer business takes shape.

Mikel Arteta has added Fabio Vieira to his squad, and the Gunners remain keen on the likes of Youri Tielemans and Gabriel Jesus.

Martinez could join them at the Emirates after his impressive campaign at Ajax.

The 24-year-old is left-footed and very versatile. He was used in different defensive positions by Erik Ten Hag last season and excelled.

Arsenal is now looking to make him one of Arteta’s summer signings and they have resumed talks with his present employers.

The Daily Mail reports that they have had a £25million bid for his signature rejected already, with Ajax hoping to sell for £30million.

The report adds that Manchester United is now set to rival them for his signature as Ten Hag plots a reunion with the Argentinian.

Just Arsenal Opinion

When a top player becomes available for transfer, the biggest clubs will be interested in a move for him.

United knows how good Martinez is because he worked with their new manager last season, and they have the money to sign him.

In this situation, we need to act fast by returning with an improved bid sooner than later.

  1. If they want to sign Lisandro, they must do it. Right now the problem seems to be neither ETH, or Murtough know which centre back they want. They are linked daily with at least 6 guys. Bunch of clowns. They also want to sign the highly temperamental Rabiot whose mother is noted for interference.

  2. I’m not surprised at all!

    This guy is so determined stop attackers he almost looks as if he has a ball magnet in his boots. I seriously hope we manage to get him in. his tackling and timing is exactly what we need to shore up our defense.

  3. the real questions are why do we REALLY want this player, who undoubtedly has something on offer, and who will be leaving as a result of his potential arrival

    1. 👍👍

      My money is on Saliba.

      This covers/replaces Tesco and Gabriel. Cedric and white covers Tommy. Holding covers Gabriel & White.

      But I don’t think he will sign to be cover… so it could also mean Tierney covers or goes.

    1. only a moronic team would pay top dollar for a player then shoehorn him out of his most natural position(s), regardless of his perceived positional versatility…that said, I would gladly take him over our thirsty wantaway Swiss miss

  4. If Manure are interested and whatever his face is in charge… Next please. You can’t sell a project where a bigger project, with more money and your ex manager in charge can compete with.

    Probably join the spuds anyway
