English club Arsenal could look to include Spanish right-back Hector Bellerin in a deal for striker Lautaro Martinez.
This according to UK tabloid Football Insider, who report that the Gunners will make a cash-plus-player offer in an attempt to persuade the Nerazzurri to deal for the Argentine striker.
The Gunners are reported to have inquired about the availability of Martinez recently, joining a number of top European clubs interested in the 23-year-old.
However, meeting the Nerazzurri’s valuation for the striker could prove difficult, but the London club believe they may have a solution.
Bellerin is a player who the Nerazzurri have been trying to sign during the window, with the 26-year-old one of their top targets to replace Achraf Hakimi on the right after the Moroccan’s sale to Paris Saint-Germain, but they have been unable to reach a deal with his current club despite agreeing terms with the player.
Bellerin’s inclusion in a deal could be used to persuade Inter to part ways with Martinez, although it remains to be seen whether a deal of this nature would be appealing to the Nerazzurri.
