Arsenal would only move for the Mexican if they sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, however.

Martinelli to be handed new contract
Gunners striker Gabriel Martinelli is set to be offered a bumper new contract at the Emirates Stadium.
Arteta is worried that Real Madrid are showing an interested in the Brazilian, and will be looking to tie Martinelli down to a longer deal to ward off Zinedine Zidane’s interest.
Arsenal are willing to treble his wages from £10,000-a-week to £30,000-a-week, according to the Daily Mail.
Los Blancos value Martinelli at around £50million, but Arsenal are determined to keep hold of the 19-year-old.
