Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal and Atletico Madrid are keeping a close eye on Racing Club striker Lautaro Martinez, according to Mundo Deportivo journalist Aquiles Furlone.
The Buenos Aires based writer says that although Valencia have the first option to buy the 19 year old, Spanish rivals Atletico and the Gunners are the teams most interested in the forward nicknamed the “Toro,” or in English the “Bull”.
He replaced veteran Lisandro Lopez as Racing Club’s first choice striker in the second half of last season, allowing him to develop his game further in senior football. He scored five times in 20 games last campaign and he will be hoping to establish himself as the club’s main goal threat when the new Argentine season starts at the end of August.
