Arsenal in 4-way transfer battle for Star striker!

Arsenal were beaten to the punch by the Italian club Napoli last summer.

Arsenal to lose out on yet another striker target?

Arsenal only needed a point in Italy against Napoli to qualify at the top of their Champions League group, but sometimes that is an awkward situation and the players would need to go out with the right frame of mind.

It is a real shame that Arsenal have not qualified for the knockout phase of the Champions League yet, despite being the best team in the so-called group of death and winning four out of our five games.
