Meanwhile, Manchester United are confident of beating Arsenal to signing Lisandro Martinez after meeting with Ajax club chiefs.

United have reportedly offered a fee just shy of £40m for Martinez.

The Dutch champions’ new director of football Klaas-Jan Huntelaar travelled to London on Saturday to meet with United reps, according to the Mirror.

And after talks with Huntelaar, the Red Devils are said to be confident of beating the Gunners in the race to sign the highly-rated centre-back.

The Manchester giants are said to have made a bid worth an initial £35.3m, with a further £4.3m available in add-ons.

The total package works out at £39.6m, with Ajax reportedly valuing the Argentina international at £43m.

Martinez would rather reunite with former manager Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford than join the Gunners.

According to The Athletic, United have “edged ahead as favourites” to sign the 24-year-old for around £35m.

Finally, Arsenal have submitted a bid for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Milinkovic-Savic has emerged as a target for Arteta, who wants a new No8 this summer.
