I know that a lot of Arsenal fans out there are starting to get very worried about the lack of Arsenal transfer action on the striker front, especially with our Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United confirming the transfers of Sadio Mane and Zlatan Ibrahimovic this week.
We also have strong rumours that the Spain international Nolito is set to join Pep Guardiola at Man City while Chelsea have apparently beaten Crystal Palace and others to the Belgium international Michy Batshuayi but this might not be such bad news for Arsenal after all, because according to the football media the striker that Chelsea really wanted to sign was their former youth star Romelu Lukaku and I think the reason they have abandoned the pursuit of the Everton player is because they know he is going elsewhere and that elsewhere could very well be Arsenal.
The Mirror was reporting a few days ago that Lukaku wanted to make the transfer to Arsenal and Arsene Wenger is said to be very keen on the Belgian as he has the combination of Giroud´s hold up ability and power as well as the pace and movement to run in behind.
The problem was thought to be the hefty transfer fee that we would have to pay but we know that Chelsea are happy to cough up huge amounts on players so why have they given up on Lukaku unless they know it is a pointless chase? I might be too optimistic here but I do think that Wenger is determined to go out on a high and is ready to finally get busy with the Arsenal transfer kitty.
Now that Lukaku and Belgium are out of Euro 2016 (massive congratulations to Wales and Ramsey by the way), do you think that Arsenal are about to snap up this Premier League star?
