Arsenal’s hopes of signing Ajax center-back Lisandro Martinez at the summer transfer window have risen sharply as Man United are close to signing another defender. The “Red Devils” together with the “gunners” are in the race for the Argentine of Ajax, but the approach of the defender Tyrell Malacia to Old Trafford, seems to have opened the way for the transfer of the 24-year-old to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal is one of the most active clubs in this summer market and has provided many names where Gabriel Jesus stands out. However, Mikel Arteta wants to strengthen the defense to be complete at the start of the new season. Man United’s focus on other targets in this market, has led Arsenal executives to launch an attack to close the transfer of Martinez to London.
The fantastic season of the Argentine national team player has put the English giants in competition with each other and it remains to be seen with interest who will achieve his transfer. The new coach of Man United knows the defender quite well after training him in the Netherlands and wants to have him back under his orders but the “Gunners” in this summer market are unstoppable in transferring their goals.
