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.
An Italian journalist has revealed that Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Romeli Lukaku about a summer move to the Emirates Stadium.
The 23 year-old is currently in France helping his side to try and win the European Championships, and has netted two goals so far in helping his side to reach the knock-out rounds.
There is no doubt that Arsene Wenger is planning to sign at least one striker this summer in order to boost the firepower at Arsenal and give us a real chance of challenging for major trophy honours next season. And while we await the decision of one of the top scorers from the Premier League last season, Jamie Vardy is not the only forward that would improve the Arsenal squad.
Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina are both being linked with moves this summer, but the club are likely to keep one of the pair as back-up to Petr Cech.
Romelu Lukaku, who has been linked with Arsenal for some time, has come out and publicly stated that he will be leaving Everton this summer. He also admitted that he was watching Leicester City when they collected the Premier League trophy and was overcome with desire to win it.
I am going out on a limb here and assuming that Arsene Wenger will now accept that some of the current Arsenal squad are not good enough, and to have any chance of winning the Premier League title next year he will have to add some real top quality players in the summer transfer window. We all fear, though, that the Frenchman will not agree.
There have been plenty of football managers linked with the Arsenal job down the years. Every time the team is on a bad run or puts in a lacklustre performance or simply does not get the right result, we hear the calls of Wenger out again. They died down a bit in the last two years after the prof steered us to FA cup trophy wins in back to back Wembley finals but another year without the big one of the Premier League title has brought the knives out for the Frenchman once again.
It was a major disappointment to all Arsenal fans when Watford inflicted our first FA Cup defeat in three years just a few weeks ago, but Nacho Monreal reckons that it will be a different kettle of fish this weekend as the Gunners have got bigger fish to fry this time around.
