Lautaro Martinez’s reaction to Tottenham’s ‘agreed sum’ for an Arsenal deal.
Tottenham and Arsenal are interested in signing Lautaro Martinez.
This summer, Lautaro Martinez is a wanted man. Tottenham is said to have agreed a fee with Inter Milan, but Arsenal is also interested. The player’s thoughts on a possible move to the Emirates Stadium were recently disclosed.
According to the Times, Tottenham and Inter have agreed on a sum for Martinez’s signing.
Spurs are willing to spend an initial fee of £60 million to sign the Argentina international, who led the Serie A giants to the Scudetto last season.
After bonuses, the amount may grow to £76 million, making Martinez the most expensive acquisition in Tottenham’s history.
Despite all indications that he will join Spurs, Arsenal are still interested in signing him.
Martinez was reportedly interested in coming to the Emirates this summer, according to Eurosport’s Dean Jones, who recently spoke on The Football Terrace podcast.

“Now, I had doubts about this from the start because, like most people, I didn’t understand why Lautaro Martinez, who had just won Serie A and was regarded as one of the best young attackers in the world, would join Arsenal.
“As a result, I’ve asked that inquiry. And, first and foremost, he wants to play in the Premier League, and he sees Arsenal – if that is the club – as a location where he can develop.
“And who knows where he’ll end up next if he does well for Arsenal?
“At the moment, Arsenal are in pole position for him because they have essentially unrestricted access to him.

“In my opinion, Lautaro Martinez should play for Man City or somewhere else because he is so brilliant. But those clubs aren’t interested in him right now.” Arsenal may now be tempted to make a move for Martinez.
Tottenham’s bid will have pushed their hand, and with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both approaching the end of their careers, the Gunners’ need for further firepower is clear.
Martinez’s resignation, on the other hand, is another another setback for Inter.
