Speaking of Talking Transfers PodcastGraeme Bailey has discussed the race to sign Lisandro Martinez amid reported interest from Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Argentine defender has been the focus of much speculation this summer as Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United have all been linked with the Ajax defender and now Bailey has an update to share on the centre-backs.

According to the reporter, Martinez has informed Ajax about his desire to leave the club, stating that Arsenal have made their choice for the Eredivisie star.

Despite Arsenal’s interest, however, Bailey explains Spurs may have a trump card in this race due to Ajax’s continued interest in Steven Bergwijn.

what was said

Bailey shared what he knows about Martinez.

“We did a play on Friday. Arsenal championed him, they like him a lot. There’s a lot of interest in this guy, but the big thing about him is that he wants to leave Ajax. We know he told Ajax that he wants to leave, he plays on the left, he’s an excellent player, he can play in many positions, he can play in the middle, he can play at left-back and he can play in midfield play,” said Bailey.

“Again this could be a fight in north London because we hear Tottenham like this guy a lot and they have a little trump card possibly because Ajax really want Steven Bergwijn so could possibly offer him that in exchange? ”

Spurs’ advantage

Tottenham may not offer Bergwijn as a direct swap for Martinez. Because how often does bartering actually happen? But they might lower his asking price to add some pressure in their hunt for the defender.

Swap deals are always quite complicated due to the complex nature of writing off fees and internal player ratings, but a kind of compromise could be found here that would suit all parties.

Spurs have the upper hand here in Bergwijn and that could see them win in this transfer scramble.
