The Gunners have been linked with some of the top strikers in Europe at the moment.

The general feeling regarding Arsenal is that signing a world class striker can take the team to the next level and make them Premier League champions.

The presence of a top class striker in Erling Haaland helped Man City to yet another league title while Arsenal once again failed to beat Pep Guardiola’s team to the finishing line.

Italian journalist Fabio Santini has shared an update on the future of Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez and mentioned Arsenal’s interest in the player.

The World Cup winner, who has guided his team to Serie A success this season, is currently negotiating a new contract at the club.

The Italian giants want to keep the striker at the club but only on their terms.

The Argentine attacker currently has a contract at the club till 2026 but the failure to reach agreement on a new deal has alerted potential buyers.

Santini has claimed that the Italian giants have offered the player a contract with a salary between a salary between €9 million and €9.5 million (£7.6m-£8.1m) per year.

But the striker is demanding €12 million (£10.2m) a year.

Lautaro Martinez is being linked with a move to Arsenal.

Santini told TVPlay Official on Twitch:

“Arsenal are professing again this morning that they want Thuram. In reality, they would also like to take Lautaro. Inter don’t even take it into consideration.

“But, if Lautaro says he wants €10 million plus €2 million salary or he’s leaving, [Inter will say] ‘great, if Arsenal offer €140 million (£120m), we’ll sell you’.”

The current situation surrounding the striker looks more like his agent forcing Inter Milan to offer him a better salary.

Arsenal’s interest in the striker hasn’t been concrete as the Gunners are looking at other options like RB Leipzig attacker Benjamin Sesko, as reported by The Telegraph.

Arsenal should look for other options

Arsenal spent £100m on Declan Rice last summer and spending another £120m on Martinez would not be a wise decision financially.

That would take most of Arsenal’s summer transfer budget who, along with signing a striker, want to sign a midfielder and a full-back as well.

There are few strikers better than Martinez in the market right now as he has shown his amazing form for the Italian giants for a long time now.

However, the move does not make sense for the Gunners financially.
