This summer, Arsenal are “still pushing” to sign Lisandro Martinez, who is also wanted by Manchester United.
Fabrizio Romano revealed on Twitter earlier on Saturday that the Gunners are still interested in signing the Ajax star despite Manchester United appearing to be a strong contender.
The Argentine international has been linked to Arsenal for some weeks now.
He appears to be heading to the Premier League, even though it’s unclear where he’s going after the Red Devils had an offer rejected today.
Romano said that Martinez will ask to leave the Dutch team in order to secure a transfer to English football in a report via his social media handle this afternoon.
This will undoubtedly be an interesting race.
The player has his heart set on a move to the Premier League this summer, if Romano is correct, which he often is.
It will all depend on who wants him more given that he will cost £45 million.
Arsenal must gazump its English rivals if they truly want to sign the player, since Manchester United’s most recent bid is said to be approximately £37 million.
Mikel Arteta’s defense, especially the central defenders, is strong but Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes aren’t flawless.
As they demonstrated toward the end of last season, they are capable of making mistakes, therefore it’s vital that Mikel Arteta and Edu increase competition for these positions this summer.
