Should Arsenal prioritise move for wantaway forward? (Opinion)

Arsenal have been lacking goals in recent weeks, and news that Lautaro Martinez is seeking a move should be eye-opening.

The Argentine is a star in the making, one with huge potential, yet one who appears to be underrated by his club.

Whilst he is a regular starter for Inter Milan, he finds himself benched a little too often, and while his club do have a number of options up top, he should be one of the first names on the teamsheet in my opinion.

Barcelona were heavily expected to make a move for him in the summer before the Coronavirus pandemic decimated clubs finances, as former Barca chief Bartomeu revealed to Sport.es and he ended up staying put, but Marca now states that he has hired Jorge Mendes to instigate him a move to a bigger club.

While many clubs are still working on their finances, Arsenal could well have an opportunity to land a real star, whose potential currently remains partially untapped.

Our club currently has Alexandre Lacazette featuring at centre-forward, but his future remains uncertain as he has entered into the final two years of his contract, with no talks mentioned at present.

The Frenchman was also linked with a move away during the summer months, and the likes of Folarin Balogun and Eddie Nketiah are yet to show that they are ready to take over from Laca as of yet.

I wouldn’t hesitate in making a move to land Martinez, and our bid could well be boosted by previous reports in MundoDeportivo (via the DailyStar) who claimed that Inter Milan would be keen on replacing Lautaro with Lacazette.

Could our side facilitate some sort of swap deal now that Martinez has made his exit intentions clear with his hiring of Mendes?

    we should only be prioritizing midfielders right now. And Martinez’s next move wont be a to Europa League side when lots of UCL sides are after his signature.

    OT but as it stands Spurs are back on top of the league.
    Still nil-nil but Chelsea can’t find a way through spurs defence.

    that is a great question to debate, i love it, obliges to think for few, i will be back.

    But bouyz and girlz, what a beautiful day of football we have in EPL, i know players as we all fans from the world want to see us end this day to indeed be thankfull of.

    Man U- Saints was great to watch as chelsea spurs is so close; let’s end this beautiful day!

    Come on Mikel, keep it simpke; best players at position and gun down those wolves here to eat us up.

    Attack is best defense, control game helps; he praized our DNA to play young plqyers; do so, Nelson, Niles and Sqka if fit, no willian nor ceballos or xhaka for Partey but Niles and one of the two above Niles & Elneny…
    whqt a great foitball day to end with style and excitement dveryone looks up to…

    we are 1-2 against Wolves WHY? do we keeping backing away if we play like this in the 2nd half it will be another Aston Villa

    Having seen us play, that’s another team that Lautaro can cross off the list. You know a club has a bad season when it cycles through too many players.

    No point spending money on a striker if you don’t have a player that can set him up.

    The guvnor is now looking lost and his ideas are faltering. The players are losing faith in him and we are now worse than we was under the previous 3 managers.

    Sad to say but we are on the verge of making the bottom 6 a bottom 7 and we simply have to change the manager because we cannot change the owner.
