Arsenal identify Lautaro Martinez transfer alternative who Tottenham also want to sign

Mikel Arteta has been active in the transfer market after making three summer signings as the Spaniard attempts to overhaul his squad this summer.

Arsenal have been disappointing in recent years and under Arteta, the north London side have finished eighth in the Premier League in successive campaigns.

The Gunners are making moves, however, clinching the signing of Ben White from Brighton for £50million in late July, making the England international the club’s third-most expensive signing in their history.

Additionally, Arteta has brought in Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht and Portuguese starlet Nuno Tavares from Benfica.
