Arsenal hold talks over Ajax's Martinez

Arsenal have held talks with Ajax over a deal for centre-back Lisandro Martinez.

The initial approach for him was said to have been made in late May after the season finished.

An agreement is not thought to be close yet - with Gunners recruitment staff also working on a number of other positions at the moment - but all sides are open to a deal.

Mikel Arteta is said to be a big fan of Martinez and the player is also intrigued by the idea of working with him.

Argentina international Martinez is a left-footed centre-half - a premium commodity in this summer's transfer market. 

Sky Sports News has been told from one source in Europe that Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has also asked to be kept updated with Martinez's situation.
