Arsenal could lose out on Martial after reported Inter interest 0

Posted on July 19, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial could be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer, but not to Arsenal, according to Sky Italia via Football365. The French international struggled for form last season and looked to be on his way out of the club as a result. Arsenal were heavily linked, but now Inter Milan are the latest side in the race for his signature.

The player’s cousin, who is a journalist based in Paris, said on the rumours: “I can confirm Inter’s interest in Anthony. However, he’s focusing solely on Manchester United. His thoughts are fixated on pre-season with United.” Martial, 21, scored just four Premier League goals in 25 appearances in 2016/17, finding himself out of the matchday squad too often.

According to the Metro, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is considering a move to Everton this summer and is believed to have been in contact with manager Ronald Koeman. The French international looked set to stay after committing his future, but he’s since been linked with a host of clubs and knows he’ll be second-choice to new signing Alexandre Lacazette.

Giroud spent last season third in the pecking order to Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck. He was an effective substitute, however, and turned in an impressive goal tally given the considerable lack of minutes. The 30-year-old scored 12 goals in 11 Premier League starts, scoring and creating 20 goals in all competitions for Arsenal, and has sides ready to bid £20m for his services as a result.

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial responded to the news of his alleged transfer request this summer, claiming talk of him asking to leave the club to join Arsenal is “false. Reports came out early in the morning that Martial spoke to his manager to push for a move to Arsenal this summer. But it appears such claims weren’t true.

The 21-year-old, who signed from AS Monaco for £26m in 2015, nevertheless endured a difficult season at United. Martial lost his starting place in the side and was singled out for criticism by manager Jose Mourinho as a result of his inconsistency.

According to 101 Great Goals, Arsenal are keen on Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi this summer but face competition from two other clubs for his signature. Manchester United and Juventus are believed to be interested in the French international who is out of contract in the summer of 2018.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay around £40million for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, according to the Daily Mail.

Any move for the young Frenchman will depend on whether the Gunners can nab Monaco’s star striker Kylian Mbappe, which seems unlikely as most of Europe’s top teams are interested in signing the wonderkid.

Out of favour at United

Martial has not quite lived up to his potential since arriving at the club from Monaco in the summer of 2015 for a fee that could eventually reach an eye-watering £57.6 million.

England defender Chris Smalling is once again linked with a move to Arsenal.

With Swedish defender Victor Lindelof set to complete his transfer from Benfica to Manchester United this summer, it is becoming increasingly likely that Chris Smalling could be allowed to leave the Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old is likely to suffer a drop in the pecking order and could be allowed to move elsewhere in order to play regularly and preserve his international status ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Premier League heavyweights Arsenal have been linked with a want-away Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, who is believed to be looking for a way out of the Santiago Bernabeu side.

The Gunners have been linked with Morata before, when he was still with Serie A champions Juventus, and Arsene Wenger is prepared to rekindle interest for the 24-year-old.

The Spanish striker was tipped for a Premier League move but still ended up being sold back to his parent club Real Madrid, who had a buy-back clause in their agreement with Juventus.

Arsenal kept their hopes alive of securing Champions League football on Sunday with a victory over a much-changed Manchester United team. There also seems to be little to fear from the Gunners remaining fixtures.

All four of the Gunners remaining fixtures are against teams with very little to play for this season. Arsene Wenger’s side face a trip to midtable Southampton on Wednesday night, before a trip to Stoke at the weekend and home games against Sunderland and Everton.

Arsenal welcome Manchester United to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, in a game that could decide which side stands a chance of finishing in the top-four this season. The Gunners and the Red Devils are both in decent on home soil and on the road respectively, but home advantage could tip Arsenal over the edge as they look to make up a nine-point deficit to the Champions League places.
