Mikel Arteta can land £275,000-a-week demanding target for £67 million with Italians ready to do deal
Arsenal have been put on red alert with Inter Milan reportedly prepared to sell star striker Lautaro Martinez in the summer.
It is no secret in the media that Mikel Arteta will need to spend some serious money in the coming transfer window to add a striker to that attack that can score goals on a regular basis.
The Spaniard failed to sign the clubs number one transfer target in the January window, As Dusan Vlahovic decided to sign with Juventus instead, meaning that Martinez is a player that the club are now reportedly eyeing up
Martinez has really established himself as one of the best strikers in Europe right now and was close to sealing a move to Chelsea last summer before the Blues opted to make a move for Romelu Lukaku.
It was reported last week how the North London outfit have reignited their interest in the 2021 Copa America champion.
And now Calciomercato have claimed that the player is facing an uncertain future in Italy.
They state that a number of Premier League teams are interested in Martinez, with Arsenal believed to be one of those clubs.
It is understood that the Serie A giants would be willing to part ways with Martinez should they receive a fee in the region of £67million
Lionel Messi is one player who knows Lautaro Martinez better than most after starring alongside him for Argentina in their Copa America victory last summer.
And the Paris Saint-Germain has been full of praise for his compatriot and reckons he has everything a striker needs.
The Barcelona legend said previously: “He’s spectacular. He has impressive qualities. You could tell he was going to be a great player and he is showing that.
“He’s very strong, really good one on one, scores a lot of goals and in the area he fights with anyone, holds it up, he can turn, scrap to win it all on his own. He has a lot of quality. He’s very complete.”
Look, Arsenal would be the perfect fit for Martinez as their style of play suits him, But Champions League football, the lack of winning silverware on a yearly basis is something that needs to be sorted
Arsenal are a big clubs but nobody wants to sign for a team challenging for just fourth ever season guys
