Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are set to engage in a financial battle for the services of Inter striker Lautaro Martinez. The Premier League giants are on the lookout for a number 9 and Martinez looks the perfect fit, given his recent form.
The Argentinian has scored 7 goals in the last 9 games in all competitions, thus reaching the figure of 15 goals in total this season. The player's representatives are aware of Inter's financial problems, which pushes them even more towards a move to England. Meanwhile, in terms of interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and United, Martinez is a more accessible target than Kane or Osimhen.
United and Chelsea have been linked with the Napoli bomber, but chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis is believed to be demanding over £100m for the Nigerian's services, while publicly stating that he is not for sale. Harry Kane, meanwhile, is also unlikely to leave Tottenham.
Martinez on the other hand, Lautaro himself is said to want to play in the Premier League, but the Argentinian's preferred destination is still unknown. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been keeping an eye on Martinez for some time and is thought to be a fan of the player. The Londoners will in all likelihood play in the Champions League next season, and the Spanish coach wants to create a solid squad, especially in the offensive department, where the need for player rotation is always present, taking into account the busy agenda and the high tempo. of English football.
Chelsea meanwhile invested heavily in the market last summer and January, but depending on the results of this season, it is not excluded that the London Blues will also jump in for Martinez.
