A potential star

In our view, Lisandro Martínez could be a star for Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester United in the coming years.

The Argentine is only 24, and he will clearly improve and develop in the coming years.

Now, of course, we know that the Eredivisie is not at the level of the Premier League.

However, new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag personally looking to sign Martinez indicates that he thinks that the Argentine defender will succeed in England.

That says a lot.
