Arteta makes his Arsenal move and submits offer to sign £43M valued star


Arsenal have reportedly stolen a march on Man United by submitting an improved offer of around £34.5million for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez

Arsenal had an indifferent season last year under Mikel Arteta and by the end of the year – they failed to get Champions League football and add another trophy to that cabinet

And it is no secret that Mikel Arteta is keen to improve a number of areas of the pitch this summer to improve his side – and has already acquired Gabriel Jesus – Fabio Vieira – Marquinhos and Matt Turner

But now it seems that the next player that is coming to the Emirates is gifted Ajax defender Lisandro – who has been linked with a move to the Premier League for weeks now

It is no secret that Man United boss Erik ten Hag is keen to raid his former club Ajax for a number of players this transfer window to help improve his squad – and Lisandro is a player that he is keen on

However – Having discussed a deal worth around £25m earlier in the summer, Dutch publication De Telegraaf report that Arsenal have now submitted a bid in the region of £34.4m with add-ons.

Ajax have not yet responded to the offer for Martinez but they are holding out for around £43m and had been planning for next season with the Argentine.

IcFootballnews View…

Arsenal are starting to do some real transfer business now and the players that could possibly be making the moves to the Emirates over the next few weeks could be very exciting ones

Lisandro is a very good player that Mikel Arteta would love – but we do believe that Ajax will not sell for the opening offer and Arsenal will need to get closer to that £40M mark

There is still a chance for Man United to swoop in though
