Arsenal set up new meeting in attempt to beat Man United to Lisandro Martinez

A fresh look at Arsenal’s ongoing efforts to secure the signing of Ajax star Lisandro Martinez was offered on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Martinez’s name has of course taken first and center in headlines across the north London red half over the past few weeks.

This comes after the Arsenal transfer team, unsurprisingly, was revealed to have come forward with an opening offer for the Argentinian.

For their part, Ajax chose to reject the proposal, which is understood to have collected the 30 million euro mark.

However, the Gunners remained undeterred, as the second bid was dropped, amid the understanding that Martinez had been identified as the preferred signing of Mikel Arteta and co.

It is therefore not surprising to hear that, on Saturday, a new meeting was held between the respective councils at Emirates and Johan Cruyff Arena.

The information was provided by transfer expert David Ornstein, who has confirmed that another round of talks will take place within the next week.

However, two potential stumbles remain on Arsenal’s way.

The first is Ajax’s asking price, with the Dutch champions continuing to demand a fixed sum of 50 million euros. Not only that, but Manchester United are also on the hunt for the 24-year-old, who boast a potential trump up their sleeve in the form of Erik ten Hag.
