Arsene Wenger has already confirmed that his club Arsenal are still in the market for more additions, and now they are said to be interested in a number of big names.
Antoine Griezmann and Robert Lewandowski are claimed to be on the French manager’s wanted list, which would seem a little farfetched, but if the club could finally be ready to stump up the necessary cash, it could become a possibility.
The French forward has shown an immense amount of consistency going forward in the past few seasons, scoring a huge 60 league goals in the last three years, as well as firing his France side to the final of the European Championships this summer, whilst picking up the Golden Boot with six goals in the tournament. Griezmann signed a new contract with the Spanish side in June, and is believed to include an £85 Millioin buy-out clause, which none of us expect the Gunners to trigger.
The Polish striker on the other hand is claimed to have baulked at the offer of a new contract by his current club Bayern Munich, and could well be looking to move clubs in the near future. He has three years remaining on his current deal, and his new manager Carlo Ancelotti has recently ruled out any departure for the 27 year-old, as well as ruling out any arrivals as strikers during the window also.
We are also claimed to hold an interest in signing Wilfried Bony and Alexandre Lacazette as our striker search continues, although the latter is believed to have picked up an injury recently, and his club are said to have raised his price tag in recent days.
Is our club going to stump up £50+ Million for the necessary strike addition this summer? Would Bony be a good addition for around £30 Million?
