Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a January move for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez, although they have less of a chance.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal have identified Lautaro Martinez as part of a striker shortlist ahead of the January window. The Gunners could splash on a new centre-forward in the winter market, but the chances of signing the Inter Milan star are slim to none.

Could Arsenal sign Lautaro Martinez?

In football, and particularly the transfer market, anything is a possibility. Arsenal will hope that is the case as they embark on a search for a new striker in the winter market. Mikel Arteta’s side faces problems in the final third, which a new striker could solve.

The January window is always a difficult place for clubs looking for top-draw strikers. Arsenal are now reportedly considering a move for 26-year-old World Cup winner Lautaro Martinez to solve their attacking issues.

The Argentine has built his reputation at Inter Milan, and this season, he proved his worth by guiding the team to the summit of the Serie A standings. Hence, the chances of the Nerazzurri letting their star man leave in January seems like a challenging task. Moreover, Martinez is ready to sign a new deal, although nothing’s been agreed as of yet.

Either that, or they demand a premium fee to test Arsenal’s resolve and their desperation to find a new striker. The Gunners are not even in a great financial state to sign the 26-year-old World Cup winner, considering what Inter Milan might ask for.

Martinez remains a player of interest for many other clubs, too, with Chelsea still keeping a close watch. As for Arsenal, they may not have the chance to bring the Argentine to the Emirates in January, although one cannot rule out anything in this sport.

Arsenal keen on a new striker

Despite suggestions and our understanding that Arsenal could prioritise a new central defender, they are in dire need of a proper goalscorer. The likes of Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah have faltered now and then, meaning they need a concerted presence up front to produce goals on a consistent basis.

While they remain with top names, the chances of bringing any of their primary targets are slim to none. Arsenal are out of the Victor Osimhen race, as they may not be able to afford his new release clause following a renewal with Napoli.

The same concerns are attached to Ivan Toney, with Brentford likely to price the Gunners out of the race. As for Martinez, they can still agree to pay a significant fee but may have to sell one of their players, like Nketiah, to fund the move.
