according to the Dutch publication De Telegraaf (h/t Metro), Ajax striker Lisandro Martinez wants to join Manchester United over a prospective transfer move to Arsenal this summer. For those at Old Trafford working to strengthen their defense, this update would definitely be welcome information.
After it appeared like Jurrien Timber would remain in the Netherlands, Erik ten Hag focused on getting Martinez’s services to fill his defensive demands. It is further indicated that “major developments” regarding Martinez’s future are likely to occur within the next two days or so.
The Gunners are also in the running for Martinez, and they have even made three offers to strike a deal with the Dutch club.
While the Argentine centre-back is interested in moving to Emirates, he has “placed his hopes” on teaming up with ten Hag in Manchester. That has made Arsenal increasingly worrisome about the situation, which certainly favours us in the end.
