Arsenal are ready to buy Lautaro!

London’s Arsenal intend to storm into the new EPL season, by spending money not only on White, but Lautaro Martinez as well.

English Arsenal continue to amaze everyone in the transfer market. After the controversial  50 million GBP purchase of Championship defender Ben White from Brighton, the Gunners swung at Lautaro Martinez.

The Telegraph wrote about the possible transfer of the Argentine, saying that the forward became one of the potential contenders for strengthening the team's attack. The reason for such high-profile conversations lies in the desire of the director of the club Edu to strengthen the squad and try to close the gap with the top 4 of the Premier League. Previously, there was talk about the arrival of Manuel Locatelli and Aaron Ramsdale in Mikel Arteta’s team, but so far without any specifics.

Arsenal's attack line has been suffering in recent years. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette do not show stability. In total, the forwards have only 23 goals last season in the Premier League and the management sees the need to take action. But will Lautaro play at Arsenal, given Arteta's style of play?

At Inter, under Antonio Conte, he had an absolutely transparent task. He played in tandem with Romelu Lukaku and the Belgian constantly fought for balls, while the Argentine picked up and accelerated the attack. Here, there is a completely different tactic, which is based more on combination football and playing in free space. Martinez does not lack speed, he can run away from many defenders, but Arsenal did not have an integral structure of the game in the attack, and still do not.

Therefore, the striker have few chances to settle down and bring a positive result in the next season. Reinforcements are really needed in the center of the field, and especially in defense. Arsenal can make a knight's move if they exchange Lautaro for Bellerin with an additional payment for the Argentine. Inter want to buy a defender after the departure of Achraf Hakimi and this is a real opportunity to play with the Italians, who also have financial problems.

But, frankly, we see no prerequisites for Lautaro's move to London. Moreover, it would be as foolish as possible to exchange the Italian champions for the eighth team in England with the foreseeable lack of prospects for getting into the top four.
