Man Utd 'join Arsenal' in race for Ajax's Martinez

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Ajax defender and Arsenal target Lisandro Martinez, according to Dutch outlet De Telegraaf.

The Gunners are keen to sign a left-footed centre-back in the summer transfer window as manager Mikel Arteta looks to provide first-choice Gabriel Magalhaes with competition next term. 

Argentine international Martinez, who can also play left-back and holding midfield, is said to be one of the north Londoners' key targets, with The Athletic reporting that Arsenal have already seen a bid in the region of €30m (£25m) rejected by Ajax.

But Manchester United have now reportedly joined the race for the tough-tackling defender after failing to sign his Ajax team-mate Jurrien Timber.
