Manchester United have overtaken Arsenal in the race to sign Lisandro Martinez and are now in pole position to sign the Ajax defender.

Mikel Arteta had identified the Argentina international as an ideal candidate to rival Gabriel Magalhaes on the left flank of Arsenal’s centre-back.

Lopez would also have offered cover for injury-prone left-back Kieran Tierney, who missed the run-in last season after suffering a knee injury.

Arsenal transfer boss Edu has made three offers for the 24-year-old but the Gunners are yet to agree on a fee.

This indecisiveness has given United an opportunity to get ahead of their Premier League rivals and according to the MEN, the Red Devils haven’t offered the versatile defender £37m.

The Athletic, meanwhile, report that Martinez is keen to reunite with Erik ten Hag, who coached the player during their time together at Ajax.

United have gotten off to a slow start in their summer transfer deals but are expected to make rapid progress over the next fortnight.

A deal for Frenkie de Jong is close to successful conclusion, although the Netherlands international has reservations about a move to Old Trafford.

United are also close to finalizing the transfer of Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia, with the 22-year-old reportedly on a four-year deal worth €17million.

Ten Hag is also keen to raid his former club for Brazilian winger Antony, while United are also awaiting Christian Eriksen’s decision on his future.

The Denmark international is considering a rival offer from Brentford but his former club Tottenham have dampened his interest.
