With two Arsenal striker targets likely to fall what’s the plan? by KM
Hello to all of you fine people reading this forum. Straight to the Arsenal news or lack thereof. We had a major attempt to sign Jamie Vardy, a move which a lot of people agree would’ve thought strange thanks to difference in playing style of Leicester where he was so effective and Arsenal.
But the move would’ve surely pleased some fans, because the lack of Arsenal transfer activity of late is really depressing, and we’ve suffered things like having the entire summer with only one transfer of a goalkeeper. So outside of Vardy, rumours were that we were in for Spain’s main striker Alvaro Morata.
The kid just rocks the Euros, scoring again in Spain’s defeat to Croatia and Real Madrid activated his buyback clause and slapped a 60 million price tag on him. Arsene will never pay such money for any player, but the summer is turning out to be difficult. Man United tabled an improved offer for Mikhitaryan if you believe the papers, Nolito is close to joining Man City and Chelsea is yet to make their stand on the transfer window, although they are odds on to get Lukaku back.
We need to put our sights on new targets and table offers. Icardi anyone? Or somebody else, that’s why we have a scouting network. We signed that scout from Leicester to find the next Vardy and Mahrez, are they looking hard enough?
My fear of the transfer window is genuine considering we have Arsene in charge, but the Euroes make the situation a lot more difficult as I fear the boss will wait until it’s over and by then player prices will skyrocket!
As ever though, all we can do is hope Arsene has a plan…
