Arsenal are claimed to be rivalling Tottenham for the signature of Munir El Haddadi of Barcelona this summer, with the forward believed to be available for a cut-price fee.
The youngster has been likened to Barca living legend Lionel Messi, and will be turning 21 next month.
It seems a little strange that his club would selling, but Arsenal are not likely to question such an offer, and will likely try and bring the Spain international to the club before the window closes.
Tottenham have been most strongly linked at present, but have already moved to bring in Vincent Janssen so far this window, and are already believed to be closing on the signing Marseille’s Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.
It is no secret that we have been desperate to bring in a forward this summer, and have been turned down by Jamie Vardy already, and a number of our targets are looking less and less likely to be joining.
We may now have found a bargain buy from the likes of Barcelona, although he will still be bringing potential to our side, instead of the ready-made attacker that our squad craves currently.
Danny Welbeck is ruled out until December at the earliest, and Walcott and Alexis Sanchez have failed to show they can deputise in a central role in the absence of Olivier Giroud.
No doubt Munir would not appease the fans want for another striker, but he could be able to forge himself ahead of Walcott in the near future, which would no doubt make a large number of Arsenal fans happy.
Munir would be welcomed, but only if he is not brought in instead of a striker, and comes with another addition this month.
Could Munir play as a striker for us? His goal tally thus is certainly not telling me that he could at the moment…
