Arsenal will make Tottenham target a £275,000-a-week offer to beat them to his signature

By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham and Arsenal are battling for Lautaro Martinez and both clubs are keen to be the one that brings him to London.

He won the Italian league with Inter Milan last season and remains one of the best Argentinian strikers in Europe.

He has watched as Inter dismantles the team that won the Scudetto last season and might ask to leave the Milan club.

Tottenham wants to add him to their squad where he would partner Harry Kane in their attack if the England captain stays at the club.

He could also become a replacement for Kane should Tottenham eventually cash in on him.

Eurosport says Arsenal is very keen to beat Tottenham to Martinez’s signature and the Gunners are prepared to make him a huge salary offer.

He is currently in talks with Inter over a contract extension and it is unclear how much they are offering him.

However, the report claims that Arsenal is prepared to pay him £275,000-a-week if he joins them.

That offer might be too much for Tottenham to compete against, especially if they still keep Kane as he would be on a higher salary than the Premier League top scorer.

That’s £127.2m but the add-ons could take it up to near enough £150m.

Romano says City have come in with a fresh bid and it’s tantalizingly close to what we’re supposed to be asking at 150 million, but in EUROS. Get it done and dusted and lets all move on to a brighter future. As long as we only buy quality and not cheap junk then we can benefit in the long run.

In my opinion, Kane is gone and all in all, it may be the best for both player and club. It releases Harry to go get some titles and trophies and it provides us some funds to bring in real quality. However, once again we enter the season prepared with one center-back in who may be injured and has only just arrived and another young prospect who again has just arrived and we face last season’s champions in our opening match. Yes you can argue that the Euro’s have slowed things up and the pandemic has slowed up the money flows but ENIC and Levy have form for this over many years and if we added the points we drop by not being ready at the beginning of the season to our end of season tally we would probably have done a lot better than we have

This report is obviously nonsense. I mean, every player we’ve been linked with (especially players in Italy) have also been linked with Arsenal. Getting tired of this, can’t figure out whether it is Arenal who’s actually interested in a player or we are.

If it takes around £75m to land him then that will definitely mean Kane has gone.

What I’m saying is Arsenal buy Pepe for £70 mill and he pretty much flops but they take that on the chin and go again.

If as Levy makes half the balls up (we’ve never spent that much on a player) he goes into meltdown and promises an new homegrown emphasis, sits out a transfer window or generally bleats about austerity.

If we’re a rich club at some time we need to act like one, Arsenal have debt – they get on with it, take risks, dream big.

untried in the Prem and that salary is a bigger risk than I think I’ve ever seen Levy take

We still need a solid defender tho,maybe someone over 30 who has experience. Ideally a proper creative midfielder is what we need ,maybe a punt on Isco and move him into a central deep role or maybe lo celso can play there

Very very good footballer , he was meant to go to Barc this season. It would take around 75mill pounds to land him now that have sold lukaku. If we go for him than we can expect spurs to go back to fast attacking football. Full flat out pace. I would consider it a worthwhile transfer even if Kane leaves. It will allow us to change our game abit

Think there’s minimal truth in this?
He’s currently on £50-80k/wk (depending on which source) & they’re intending on making him their highest paid player, increasing his wages by approx 350% – 550%??

No it not, he’s a class striker and at that price and age of only 23 his value will only go up. We were told that we wanted to sign him to play with Harry Kane not if Harry was sold, lets see Levy walk the walk, he supposedly agreed a fee. If Levy lets him go to Arsenal the fans need to out Levy, FULL STOP.

Levy procrastinating has let in Arsenal, and there is no way Levy will offer that as a wage. If Levy lets Martinez go to Arsenal he will find himself in deep S–T

Does Arsenal have the 75 million pounds transfer fee to purchase him and then still pay him this huge salary. They already have Aubamayeng and Lacazette so what happens to them? Then there is the issue concerning Inter allowing him to go having already lost their other striker to Chelsea. It’s just all media/paper talk and agents bigging up the money so they can walk away with a wallop of a commission.

He doesn’t seem like our usual type of signing, more what you would expect from Arsenal – perhaps time to see if this club has changed.

On that type of salary, if he flops, well…he’s Soldado x10

A lot of risk for Levy to sanction…
