Lautaro Martinez is the target to reinforce Arsenal’s attack for next season. The London team wants to return to the Premier League and qualifying for the Champions League will be paramount to signing important players.
By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).
Since his arrival in Serie A, Lautaro Martinez has had a performance that not only established him as the starting center-forward of the Argentine National Team but also aroused the interest of several European giants.
The last of them is Arsenal, a team that -according to reports in Italy and England- has already contacted the Inter Milan striker’s agent with a view to a millionaire offer.

Arsenal is looking for a striker after the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona and the possibility of Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah leaving the club in the next transfer window.
In view of this, Lautaro Martinez would be their main candidate according to British media The Mirror and Daily Mail.
Argentina scored 27 times (second most) in 17 matches in the World Cup qualifiers. They also allowed 8 goals in 17 matches (second best).

It is not the first time that Arsenal has set its eyes on the 24-year-old player who in the current season with Inter Milan accumulated a total of 15 goals in 35 games, but last year they had already started talks with the intention of adding him to their ranks and for that reason they offered a millionaire salary of 17 million euros per season when in Inter Milan, he earns six million.
In 2021, Lautaro renewed his contract with Inter Milan and extended it until 2026, a reason that forces Arsenal to make a greater effort financially not only for his long-term contract but also for the possibility of competing internationally.
Arsenal have reportedly made contact with Lautaro Martinez's agent with Inter Milan prepared to sell the striker in a cut-price deal.

According to CalcioMercato, Inter Milan would ask Arsenal and any interested team for a figure around €70 million.
Inter Milan comes from winning Serie A last season and, in this new championship, has a good chance of repeating the title. Anyway, the Champions League would be one of Lautaro Martinez’s main objectives and the Italian team is very well positioned to play it again, while Arsenal is still in the fight for those positions: fourth in the Premier League and, for now, inside.

It was precisely in the Champions League that Lautaro Martinez ended up proving right those who said he would be a world-class striker: at Anfield Road and with Inter Milan in need of a win against Liverpool, the Argentine striker scored the 1-0 for his team with a great goal from outside the box.
However, his coach -Simone Inzaghi- took him off the field just a few minutes later and raised doubts about whether Inter Milan is the right team for Lautaro Martinez.
