Zlatan Ibrahimovic is currently without a club heading into the new season, but should Arsenal pursue a deal?
The striker was fantastic for Manchester United last term in helping them pick up a second-rate treble, scoring 17 Premier League goals and a further 11 in other competitions, and we could most definitely do with a boost in attack.
Zlatan has so far refused to sign a new contract with the Red Devils, and is believed to be focussed on recovering from his injury before choosing his next destination.
Arsenal have already signed prolific French striker Alexandre Lacazette, who previously rivalled the Swede for the Ligue 1 Golden Boot, but with a question mark over the future of Olivier Giroud, we may well require further additions in attack.
Henry Onyekuru was on our radar this summer, but he refused to join a club without the guarantee of regular action, and has since joined Everton, who strangely enough sent him out on loan.
Kylian Mbappe was also on our radar of course, but he can almost choose which club he would like to play for next term, and in my opinion, he will likely stay in Monaco for one more season before deciding to join Real Madrid’s side.
There are very few other strikers being linked with us at present, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic being available on a free transfer early into the season could be too big an opportunity to overlook, not that our interest would guarantee his arrival.
Man United are claimed to be willing to offer him an extension once he is rehabilitated, while the MLS is amongst the bookies favourites to be his next destination, but would the prospect of being able to join Arsenal be overlooked?
Should we try and sign Zlatan? Would his arrival complicate Lacazette’s time settling in?
