Arsenal could include Hector Bellerin as a makeweight to sign Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

The Gunners are keen on landing a high-profile striker this summer, and they recently expressed an interest in Martinez.

According to journalist Pete O'Rourke, the north London club are likely to propose a player-plus-cash deal for the Argentine.

The Nerazzurri are interested in signing Bellerin. The Gunners could include him as a makeweight to land the services of Martinez.

Martinez reportedly has an €111m release clause on his contract, but could be available for €90m during the ongoing transfer window.

The Gunners are unlikely to afford the entire package. Bellerin, who is valued at €20m, could be offered as part of the deal.

The proposal is likely to be rejected by the Serie A giants, who are reluctant to lose one of the main players from their title success.

Martinez has two years remaining on his contract with the club. Inter are willing to keep him unless a significant bid arrives.
