Inter Milan hoping to retain Arsenal transfer target next season

Inter Milan are hoping to retain Arsenal transfer target Lautaro Martinez next season.

After losing Romelu Lukaku last year, Inter Milan chose not to replace the Belgian forward, and have utilised Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez alongside Martinez this season.

Understandably, they don’t want to lose another striker, and Gazzetta dello Sport (via Cult of Calcio) are reporting that Inter Milan will do everything in their power to keep the Argentine forward.

Lautaro Martinez to Arsenal?

The report from Cult of Calcio also states that Inter Milan are in contract discussions with Paulo Dybala, but they hope the Argentine pair can be their striker partnership for next season, rather than selling Martinez.

The Times recently reported that Arsenal would renew their interest in Martinez after failing with a bid last summer. With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah out of contract this summer, Mikel Arteta is keep to add more firepower to his front line.

Lacazette has only managed four league goals this season, and Arsenal’s goals have had to come from elsewhere, with the likes of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe chipping in significantly.

Although it’s valuable to see your midfielders providing goals, there’s no doubt Arteta would like to see a lot of his goals coming from a number nine.
