Arsenal are serious about adding Lautaro Martinez to their squad this summer and the Gunners will throw money at him if that is what it will take to get their man.
They are battling with Tottenham to bring the Argentinian striker to the Premier League.
He won the Serie A with Inter Milan last season, but the Milan club is selling off some of its best players to balance their books.

They have agreed to sell Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea and Arsenal wants to bring Martinez to London as well.
Eurosport says the Gunners have held preliminary talks with his representatives and they have indicated that they are willing to pay him £275,000-a-week to join them.
Arsenal has several attackers on their books at the moment, but the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are struggling for form.
Martinez would bring a breath of fresh air into the squad and perhaps prompt the other strikers to start firing again.
Tottenham might struggle to match Arsenal’s wage offer considering that their highest earner is Harry Kane and he earns far less than that at the moment.
Arsenal is also open to offers for Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah. If they fail to leave before he joins, they would fall further down the pecking order at the club.
