Arsenal likely to miss out on Lisandro Martinez to Manchester United
In our view, Arsenal are unlikely to be able to sign Lisandro Martinez from Ajax ahead of Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
The Mirror’s report suggests that the defender is determined to move to Old Trafford.
We can understand why.
Manchester United are arguably the biggest club in England, and Martinez worked with Ten Hag at Ajax.
The Red Devils are about to venture on a rebuilding project, and Martinez could play a big role in that.
