A lot of Arsenal fans are getting impatient waiting for Arsene Wenger to add to the transfer of Petr Cech to Arsenal from Chelsea, and bring in some top quality outfield players to give the Gunners the firepower to challenge Cech’s former club for the Premier League title.
One of those players is likely to be a striker, as long as the manager agrees with the so-called football experts in the media. But with Arsenal already being overloaded with front men, I think that Wenger wanted to clear the decks and make room in the squad first.
He has already done a lot of this with the sale of Lukas Podolski to Galatasaray and now it looks like we may soon be able to enter the market, as a Metro report has revealed that our Costa Rican international Joel Campbell is on the verge of a move to Besiktas, where he will come up against Podolski in the Turkish league. Apparently we have accepted an offer of around £3.5 million for Campbell and now all we need is for the striker to accept the move.
Then Wenger can add that money to his transfer budget and if he is quick, I think he could do a lot worse than going for the top scorer from the French Ligue 1 last season, Alexandre Lacazette. Not only would he offer the Gunners a very good option up front, it would scupper the transfer plans of our Premier League rivals Liverpool, who Talksport say are very keen to sign the prolific 24-year old.
Apparently the striker is keen to make the step up and surely he would prefer to join Arsenal and play in the Champions League. Do you think we should try to hijack this deal?
