Arsenal are reportedly eyeing Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez in their quest for a January transfer, according to Fichajes. The Gunners are facing challenges in the final third and believe a new striker could address their issues. However, securing Martinez’s signature might be a daunting task, given his vital role in Inter Milan’s success this season, leading them to the top of Serie A.
Despite Martinez’s potential contract extension with Inter, Arsenal are exploring the possibility of acquiring the 26-year-old World Cup winner. Financial constraints and competition from other clubs, including Chelsea, make the transfer scenario uncertain.
The North Londoners are struggling to afford the release clause for Victor Osimhen and facing pricing hurdles with Ivan Toney, view Martinez as a viable option.
While the chances of landing their primary targets remain slim, Arsenal may need to consider selling players like Eddie Nketiah to fund a move for Martinez.
The January window is notoriously challenging for securing top strikers, and Arsenal’s pursuit of a prolific goalscorer adds an intriguing dimension to their transfer strategy. The coming weeks will reveal whether the Gunners can overcome these obstacles and secure the services of Lautaro Martinez.
