Would this £51 Million striker be tough to turn down this summer?

Inter Milan are claimed to be willing to cash-in on Lautauro Martinez this summer, with Arsenal named as one of the clubs interested in his signature.

The Gunners were believed to be a possible destination for the Argentine forward last summer, before Romelu Lukaku’s exit seemed to close the door on his potential departure, and once again he is being linked with a move away from the San Siro.

TheSun cites La Gazzetta Dello Sport in claiming that Inter’s finances are in ruins, and that they would consider Lautauro’s exit for just £51 Million this summer.

Of all our supposed targets, including the likes of Jonathon David, Victor Osimhen, Cody Gakpo and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, you have to say that Martinez has shown the most over the longest period of time, and for a likely lesser fee than the Nigerian international would cost, the 24 year-old surely offers the best value if this report proves to be true.

The forward has the versatility to play as the main outlet in attack, or as the second-striker, with 95 goal contributions from 177 Inter appearances since joining in 2018, and remains just 24 years-old despite seemingly being around the top level for a number of years.

He very-much matches our current transfer policy of signing young players with the scope to continue improving, and surely would represent a player with minimal risk having shown a strong level of consistency under a number of different managers in Italy.

I would absolutely love to read that Arsenal had secured his signature this summer, although I struggle to believe that could be a reality without securing Champions League football, but thankfully we are closing in on sealing our place in the top-four at present.

Do you think we would be unable to turn down the chance to sign Martinez should we get the chance?

  1. An Outright No!

    He’s no different from Gabriel Jesus, Richarlison who even have EPL experience,

    I did prefer we add some cash to the 51m and get a word class,A lukaku of today is still better than Lazaro Martinez, let’s just spend wisely.

  2. He looks really good. He has scored quite a few goals this season, my only caveat is he scored them in Serie A.

    At $50m though, he might be well worth the money, especially if we qualify for the UCL.
