Arsenal has reignited their interest in Lautaro Martinez, according to a report in The Times.
The Argentinian has been on their radar for some time now as he shines in Serie A for Inter Milan.
Inter sold Romelu Lukaku last summer and wanted to keep Martinez to retain the core of their Serie A-winning team.
The Argentinian has now become the main man at the Italian club, but this has also attracted the attention of the likes of Arsenal and other European clubs.
The Gunners need new attackers as they look to get back into the Champions League places.
If they secure a top-four finish at the end of this campaign, they would strengthen their squad and the report claims their recent progress in that regard has made them reignite their interest in Martinez’s signature.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Martinez has been one of the finest strikers in Europe and he would bring experience and expertise to the Emirates.
He scored a goal against Liverpool at Anfield this season, which is a clear indication that he can do a job in the Premier League.
He would not come cheap, but Arsenal should be prepared to pay a high fee to land a player as good as he is.

How did he manage to score from that tight angle,this kid must be a genius.
Top talent, the ideal striker if we are not signing Jesus too, think he is similar Sanchez.
Should not prevent us from singing an out and number nine
Similar playing style to Sanchez….. yes. But similar situation to Sanchez….. no.
Sanchez was on the bench at Barca, Pep who bought him had left and his successors Tito Vilanova and Luis Enrique didn’t fancy Sanchez.
Lautaro Martinez is a starter at Milan, Milan don’t want to sell plus I think he’d view going from Inter to Arsenal as a downgrade at the moment.
The transfer market may be a bit quiet for now, officially, and it’s all rumours for now but I believe there are too many big clubs looking for strikers this summer which drops Arsenal down the pecking order.
-Real Madrid (Mbappe might stay at PSG)
-PSG (If Mbappe goes to RM)
-Man City (Haaland might go RM if Mbappe stays at PSG)
-Dortmund (Losing Haaland)
-Bayern Munich (start replacing Lewandowski)
-Barca (Aubameyang was a stop-gap)
-AC Milan (Giroud & Ibra are ageing)
-Man Utd (start replacing CR7)
-Chelsea (replace Werner & Lukaku)
-Liverpool (start replacing Firmino)
So that’s 10 teams (8 considering Mbappe and Haaland will be at two of the ten teams next season) above us in the pecking order where any top striker would opt to go first before coming to Arsenal. Remember, even Napoli got Higuain over us and they could be losing Victor Osimhen.
Are there seriously more than 10 top strikers available on the market right now? I don’t think so. I guess that’s why we’re trying to pull an “Alexis Sanchez” by going for Gabriel Jesus, a rotation/non-starter player at Man City whom no club above us in the pecking order is going for. If he’s to be as successful as Sanchez I’m good with that.
2004 very detail
But honestly i have never seen or herd of Jesus been so lethal in front of goal until rumor of our intrest.
But some how I suspect a genuine interest from us.
There would still be a need for an out and out number nine, in the mould of an attack bully, even if we should sign Martinez or Jesus.
This young midfielder Tchouameni, I think he is worth every quid he’s rumored for, with Fabian Ruiz would solve our midfield for good
Yes there won’t be an abundance of marquee strikers available this summer, hence why we need to get our business done early and in some cases pay an extra quid
Arsenal do have an exciting project we can sell, looking more attractive the closer we gets to the window.
