It is only a matter of time before we start getting lots of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a summer transfer bid for Romelu Lukaku, after it was revealed by Sky Sports and other sporting websites that the Belgium international star has rejected the new contract that is being offered to him by his current club Everton, so I thought I would get in early and ask whether you Arsenal fans out there would like the Gunners to go for this powerful, prolific and Premier League proven striker?
First of all I would like to point out that the Lukaku situation is far from clear cut. Just a week or so ago there were reports declaring that he was about to sign and his agent had even suggested as much, so there may just be a little sticking point which will soon be resolved.
I personally think that the forward may be waiting to see if the Toffees qualify for either the Europa League or the Champions League next season. It may even be a question of whether Ronald Koeman is still going to be their manager next year, with Arsenal being one of the possible moves for the Dutchman, along with Barcelona.
But klet´s say the Belgian does not sign a new deal. That would tell me that he is looking for a move to a bigger club and the Gunners would fit the bill. We may be in dire need of some firepower as well if the rumours about Alexis Sanchez leaving are true.
Even if they aren´t we may want an upgrade on Olivier Giroud at the end of the season, so do you think that Lukaku is the right transfer target for Arsenal_ Which other forwards would you like us to go for?
