Man United and Arsenal eye Lautaro Martinez for the summer transfer window. Both Premier League giants are looking to upgrade their number 9 options. While Inter Milan consider the Argentine striker untouchable, a good offer could convince them otherwise. The Nerazzurri have to make a profit in the summer from transfers to balance their books, and Lautaro will certainly fetch a good amount. However, he is their main weapon in attack, and selling him would have a huge impact on their performance.
Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United are looking for a striker that can adapt to Ten Hag’s system. They have signed Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley for now. But they will need a capable striker that can help the Red Devils reach the next level. Ten Hag has already lifted United but will need more quality players to make them great again.
Man United and Arsenal eye Lautaro for £70 million
The Nerazzurri will be willing to listen to offers above £70 million. The Argentine striker is a consistent goal-scorer and has improved since winning the World Cup. Hence, many European clubs are after him, including the Premier League leaders Arsenal. The gunners have stunned everyone as they are the favorites for the title. However, they have struggled in absence of Gabriel Jesus, as Nketiah has the talent but lacks experience. Signing Lautaro could be the last piece in the puzzle for the Gunners. He will give more options to Arteta in attack, who can use a front two of Lautaro and Jesus as a tactical switch.
For the Nerazzurri, Lautaro Martinez is almost irreplaceable. The Argentine striker has arguably been their best player this season. Since the break, he has carried his side to the second position. While, they were struggling to stay in the top four in the first half of the season.
