Arsenal’s ‘ingenious methods’ to signal Inter’s Lautaro Martinez
Given the current economic climate in general, and for football clubs in particular, signing players for nearly £ 80million isn’t a real option right now, although Arsenal are likely to be looking for some inventive financial solutions for Internazionale’s Lautaro Martinez.
According to journalist Peter O’Rourke, speaking on the football.london-quoted YouTube show ‘The Football Terrace’, there are reasons to believe that the Gunners are serious about making a deal with the Neroazzuri.
“There seems to be a really serious interest from Arsenal in Lautaro Martinez,” he said.
“Its price is really high, you’re probably talking about £ 77 million. That hasn’t deterred Arsenal so far, they are trying to find inventive ways to reach an agreement with Inter Milan.
“They [Arsenal] I think the ace up my sleeve to finalizing this deal might be Hector Bellerin.
“If Inter Milan are serious about Bellerín, Arsenal are hoping that if they offer Bellerín plus cash there is a chance they can get this Lautaro Martinez deal.”
The Telegraph also announced the Gunners’ intentions earlier this week.
The Argentine shooter would certainly add to Arsenal’s offensive offering, although the lack of Champions League football could prove a stumbling block.
