Greetings all, Midkemma here with another thought I would like to share with you beautiful Arsenal supporters ^.^
This time the thought is about a striker and which ones could we go for, which ones would be good enough, which ones would get the fans singing?
Some names jump to mind to get the fans singing, Lacazette is one of my favourite but Aubameyang is another one and we can dream about Messi… but would any of them consider coming to Arsenal now?
We have missed out on UCL football for the 1st time in 21 years and this is new to a lot of younger Arsenal fans, some of our young passionate fans in education have never seen Arsenal without UCL football, it is such a strange situation for us to be in now that it is hard to tell if we can get the top players we would like or not.
What happens now if we throw that list of currently performing players for respected top clubs out the window? The list will include players we can not get yet anyway so for me it is the obvious avenue, research and get a Lacazette before he had built a reputation for scoring every season or buy Aubameyang before he went to Borussia Dortmund, this I feel would be Arsenals best way of getting the striker we need.
We need a striker who can score but will see Arsenal as a step up still.
Lukaku could be one, Everton finished below us and we thrashed them in style on the last day of the season, too little too late but it was a good game to watch. Biggest hurdle here though would be Chelsea, if no team goes in for him then we might be able to get him.
Another striker I think is worth taking serious is Dembele at Celtic, we were interested in him before and he has gone on to score a respectable number of goals and helping Celtic go unbeaten.
In Italy we could look at Belotti, again Chelsea appears to be our biggest rival for his signature from EPL teams, if they get Lukaku then we go for Belotti, if they go for Belotti then we jump in on Lukaku.
Timo Werner is a young promising striker who would see Arsenal as a step up, he has scored the same amount of goals per game as Lukaku and like Lukaku, he has done it in a team that isn’t exactly known for dominating their league.
There are strikers well known in their respective league but less known internationally and those strikers do compare with some of the big names.
So my thought is this, do we need a headline name as a striker this transfer? What striker would you like to see at Arsenal and how would you convince them to join us?
