Manchester United are now after Arsenal FC main target Lisandro Martinez. Martinez has been on Arsenal's cards for several weeks but United are now favourites in signing the Argentine.
Lisandro has been key to Ajax's strong defence and their eventual Eredivisie title clenching in the 2021/22 campaign. His close links with his former manager Erik ten Hag could give United an upperhand in the race.

United have a 65 percent chance to sign the Ajax's center back compared to Arsenal's 42 percent, according to a report by transfermarkt.com.
A report by Fabrizio Romano suggests that Lisandro could be United's next priority after Malacia deal is done with.
"Manchester United are preparing a bid for Lisandro Martinez. He's very high in Erik ten Hag's list, race open with Arsenal that have no intention to give up."
"Once Malacia deal will be signed and official. Man Utd will be on it - while Arsenal are still pushing," the post read.
United's join in the hunt could be in efforts to strengthen their defence after a very poor run last season that saw them concede 57 goals, their worst run in the club's history.
