Arsenal appear to be desperate to bring in another striker this summer, and have so far failed to do so, and we thought we’d delve into the latest prices on us to land a number of targets.
The most heavily linked attacker is obviously Alexandre Lacazette of Lyon, and his price reflects the reports, ranking him as the most likely to join us. The Frenchman netted an opening weekend hat-trick for his side, which will more than likely have raised his price-tag once again however, and in my opinion appears less and less likely to join as the window goes on.
Wilfried Bony is the next out-and-out striker linked with our club, having apparently been put on the transfer list by Pep Guardiola. The Ivory Coast international has seemingly fallen behind Kelechi Iheanacho in the pecking order, and is no longer needed in the eyes of the Spanish boss. He had a great record for Swansea previously, and could well be a good option to have as back-up to Olivier Giroud.
Interestingly, Karim Benzema is the next shortest price to move to the Emirates this summer. There has been a thought in the back of my mind telling me that both him and Morata can not share the single sole striker role this season, and one of the duo could well be sold before the window closes. My initial though would have been the Spaniard, but the odds disagree.
Lukaku and Sturridge are the only two remaining who are priced at 10/1 or shorter to join us this summer, and while the Belgian is believed to be keen on a move, his price seems to rule us out. The England international would be a huge buy, but his injury problems are unlikely to help are already injury-prone squad, and I find it hard to believe that Klopp would sell regardless.
Odds on all targets to be at Arsenal when the summer transfer window closes:
Lacazette 5/4 (2.25)
Draxler 2/1 (3.0)
Isco 4/1 (5.0)
Bony 5/1 (6.0)
Douglas Costa 6/1 (7.0)
Benzema 13/2 (7.5)
Sturridge 7/1 (8.0)
Morata 9/1 (10.0)
Lukaku 10/1 (11.0)
Deeney 12/1 (13.0)
Cavani 14/1 (15.0)
Who can you see arriving this summer?
