There has been a huge number of Arsenal transfer rumours about Arsene Wenger’s search for a striker, probably because the failed attempt to sign the England international forward Jamie Vardy from Leicester City proved that the Frenchman was after more fire power to help Olivier Giroud and all.
And there have been almost as many players mentioned in connection with the club but hopefully Arsenal fans will soon know the identity of our new striker, if the report by The Sun this week is anything to go by.
The paper claims that Wenger and Arsenal have been talking to the representatives of the Everton and Belgium star Romelu Lukaku and those of the Lyon and France star Alexandre Lacazette. As both of these player are now free of international duty following the Euro 2016 defeat of the Belgians by Wales, we should soon know.
If the report is right then it would appear that Wenger has narrowed down his wish list to just these two, with the Real Madrid and Spain forward Alvaro Morata seemingly off the radar. Assuming that the Gunners are only going to sign one new attacker this summer, would you prefer it to be Lukaku or Lacazette?
