According to the Athletic, Arsenal have been handed a transfer boost as Lautaro Martinez has expressed interest in joining them this summer.

Martinez is among the list of players Inter Milan are planning to sell to boost their finances.

The Athletic reported that the agreement between the two clubs would be simple to complete should the right offer be placed on the table.

Inter team-mates Romelu Lukaku, Christian Eriksen, and Alexis Sanchez all earn more than double what he does now, so a move to Arsenal would see him earn much more.

Martinez’s situation is being closely monitored by several Premier League clubs, including Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal’s North London rivals, have been linked with the Argentine, but only if they lose Harry Kane to Manchester City.

Arsenal’s ability to raise funds could be dependent on Alexandre Lacazette’s future.

They cited the French forward as part of a possible Martinez transfer, but Inter is only interested in a monetary exchange.
