Arsenal told Martinez price

Ajax are demanding up to £55million for Arsenal target Lisandro Martinez, reports Telegraaf.

Arsenal have made the centre-back a key target and had hoped to agree a deal around £30m, but are now facing up to the prospect of paying twice that.

The Gunners could face competition for Martinez from Manchester United, who are ready to move for the Argentina international after failing to land his Ajax team-mate Jurrien Timber.

Inter ultras warn Lukaku after betrayal

Inter Milan’s ultras have sent a warning to Romelu Lukaku as the striker nears a return to the club.

A statement read: “Since Lukaku’s return to Inter is very likely, a few things need to be made clear.

“Curva Nord supports Inter Milan and will not stage any protest against the player (despite his behaviour last summer). That being said, nobody shall go and welcome him with scarves and banners representing the Curva or its groups. He will need to earn everything that, in case, will be done for him in the future with humility and sweat on the pitch.

They added: “We took note of Lukaku’s betrayal and we were extremely disappointed. With time we can even forgive such things to a footballer, but the facts won’t change.”

Pau Torres ‘set for Premier League’

Pau Torres is very likely to move to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester United and Tottenham linked.

That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, who said: “For Pau Torres, they know he has a release clause of around €60m (£52m), but they also know that Villarreal would be willing to negotiate for something less than this.

“It could be around €45m-€50m (£38m-£43m). So they have all the conditions set, and they have had some conversations with intermediaries working on this deal.

“I see Pau Torres playing in the Premier League next season because it’s a serious possibility, but at the moment, it’s still not something advanced between clubs.”

Mane wanted a new challenge

Sadio Mane insists he has moved to Bayern Munich for a new challenge having won everything with Liverpool.

“Obviously it is strange – really, really strange – to no longer be a Liverpool player,” he told liverpoolfc.com. “But of course I had a great time, an unbelievable time. We won a lot.

“My life is always (about a) challenge and when it came I said to the club that I want to leave, I want to go somewhere else to see a new challenge.

“It is not anything else, it is just a challenge because for me I want to always be challenging myself to get better and better.”
