According to reports, Arsenal believes that Hector Bellerin could be an “ace in their sleeve” when signing Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez. Arsenal are keen to sign the Argentina international. However, any move to Emirates Stadium will not be easy.
Arsenal finished eighth last year in the Premier League after a difficult campaign.
Mikel Arteta has decided to strengthen his team while the transfer window for summer is still open.
Arsenal has signed Nuno Tavares and Albert Sambi Lokonga, both from Anderlecht (Benfica) so far.
They are now planning to welcome Martinez to Emirates Stadium.
Inter Milan’s star player has had a good few months. He won Serie A and Copa America together with his country.
Pete O’Rourke, a journalist has stated that Arsenal believes Bellerin is the key to a deal and they’re willing to bait him.

O’Rourke stated that Arsenal is interested in Lautaro Martinez, Inter Milan’s striker.
He’s coming off a very successful Inter season, which saw them win Serie A. Then he went to Copa America, playing with Lionel Messi, scoring goals that helped Argentina win the tournament.
So, a very talented striker. Although we’ve previously seen him linked to Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal now seem to be pushing hard for the deal.
His price is quite high, and you are probably talking about PS70million Inter would pay to buy the South American.
Arsenal has not been discouraged by this, and they are trying to come up with really innovative ways to reach an agreement.
They think Hector Bellerin could be the one to make this happen. Hector Bellerin is apparently surplus to their needs.

Mikel Arteta will allow the player to leave north London after spending a lot of time there. He feels that he has plenty to choose from at right-back and is eager to make a move.
Inter is interested in Bellerin.
Martinez, who scored 19 goals in 47 matches last season for the team, is unlikely to be let go.
Stewart Robson, ESPN’s pundit, has warned Arsenal against signing the Argentine. He thinks he might end up like Alvaro Morata.
Morata, a 2017 summer transfer window from Real Madrid, joined Chelsea.
The Spain international struggled to keep the No9 shirt on his back, before he left for Atletico Madrid.

Robson stated that Martinez was a great player on his day.
He is good with his back towards goal and has the pace to score goals.
“But, I’m going put him in the exact same category as Morata.
He can win on any day, but there are too many days when he seems lost in confidence. Once he loses that confidence, he stops participating in the game, doesn’t hold the ball up and starts looking weak.
He’s an exceptional player on his days. It’s hard to say if he would have enough exceptional days at Arsenal, as they aren’t a very good side right now.
Alejandro Moreno backed this up, saying: “There was an era in Lautaro Martinez’s career when he was being rumoured that he would be traveling everywhere including Barcelona. He was about to make a huge, massive jump.
Inter has had a productive relationship with Lukaku, and Lukaku shined while Lautaro was more in the background.
Lautaro Martinez should be sent to Arsenal if you are willing to make the move.
It’s a story similar to Alvaro Morata’s, but for the man to actually be named.
Alvaro Morata has shown us that when it was his turn to play the man, things haven’t always worked out.
