Deal close: Mikel Arteta keen on signing versatile £40m-rated Argentine

Arsenal are on a mission during the early stages of this summer’s transfer window.

The Gunners, led by manager Mikel Arteta, have already confirmed three new signings and appear close to striking deals for another three.

Following the recent arrivals of Marquinhos from Sau Paulo, Fabio Vieira from Porto and goalkeeper Matt Turner from MLS side New England, the Londoners are believed to have turned their attention to Man City’s Gabriel Jesus (Fabrizio Romano) and Leeds United’s Raphinha (The Athletic).

However, there is another player on the Gunners’ radar – Ajax’s Lisandro Martinez.

The latest in the club’s transfer activity comes from The Express, who are reporting that following recent talks with the South American’s representatives, Arsenal are growing increasingly more confident that they’ll be able to lure the 24-year-old to the country’s capital in time for next season.
