Inter Milan are preparing to make a move for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if they lose Lautaro Martinez this summer.

Aubameyang will be the top target for Inter if they lose Lautaro Martinez in the summer, as per a report from La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Barcelona are the favourites to sign Martinez, according to ESPN, with the striker linked with several high profile clubs after an impressive season for Inter.

The 22-year-old has scored 16 goals in 28 games in all competitions so far in 2019/20.

The duo of Manchester United and Manchester City are also interested while Real Madrid could make a bold move by triggering his release clause.

This could likely see Inter lose the youngster and turn their attention to Arsenal’s talisman.

Aubameyang is out of contract next year and reports suggest contract renewal negotiations have stalled due to poor performances from his side on the pitch.

Inter initially made enquiries about the 30-year-old when discussions over a deal for Romelu Lukaku slowed down.

Eventually they landed Lukaku from Old Trafford, but are now prepared to reignite their interest in Aubameyang should Martinez leave the San Siro.
