Arsenal are exploring the opportunity to sign Lautaro Martinez — with Inter continuing to adjust to a more sustainable financial model over this window.
A move has previously been considered unrealistic but The Athletic understands Arsenal have long held Lautaro in high regard. With the north London club and Inter Milan in contact about a prospective deal for Hector Bellerin, sources indicate that Arsenal have enquired about Lautaro’s availability.
It is thought Lautaro would be interested in a move to Arsenal if Inter want to sell him. Sources state Tottenham have also been mentioned in relation to Lautaro but only as a contingency option if Harry Kane leaves.
An Arsenal move for Lautaro may be reliant on the departure of Alexandre Lacazette. It is believed his name has been mentioned to Inter but they are thought to only want cash.
