 The Emirates Stadium team will enter the summer transfer window with the primary goal of a quality central striker.

Arteta praises Lacazette 

Since last summer, Arsenal have been planning to upgrade the attack with a quality central striker. However, at that time, they lost their two top targets, Tammy Abraham and Lautaro Martinez. Entering the Eastern market, despite being ready to spend a huge amount of money, the Emirates team’s plan was once again bankrupt when they could not convince Dusan Vlahovic.

However, the situation will certainly change completely this summer, because the Gunners are forced to bring back at least a new ‘Number 9’ with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah likely to leave at the same time. contract expiration. In fact, the media claims, the Gunners have started to identify the top targets to recruit right now. And no one is a stranger, one of the names they are targeting is still Lautaro Martinez.

 Which striker will go to Arteta? 


This season, the Argentine striker continues to keep an impressive performance despite losing his good partner, Romelu Lukaku. After 24 matches, Martinez contributed 2 assists and 11 goals, ranking 5th in the current Serie A top scorer list. Obviously, Martinez has proven his class, and if he can adapt to the Premier League environment, he can completely explode under the Arsenal shirt.

Recently, the Gunners also gave themselves another important push in this deal. More specifically, before Martinez is regularly linked with many other clubs, Tuttosport confirmed that Inter Milan planned to recruit another central striker to backup the Argentine star. Currently, Inter’s top target is Marcus Thuram, a star on the staff of Borussia Monchengladbach.

According to valuation from Transfermarkt, Inter Milan will only have to spend 28 million euros for the French striker. Even the actual number may be significantly lower when Thuram’s contract expires next summer. According to the current situation, it is clear that the possibility of Thuram landing at Inter is quite large, and if a backup plan is available, the Serie A champion will certainly accept to part with Martinez if a reasonable offer is received.

 Will Martinez land in the Premier League? 

Currently, the Argentine striker is being valued by Transfermarkt at about 80 million euros, and Inter probably has no plans to reduce the price when the contract between the two sides is still valid until 2026. However, if accepted. If you accept to break the safe because of Vlahovic in the East market, there is no reason for Arsenal to ‘shake their heads’ with Martinez.
