25-year-old goal machine that Arsenal wants is joining another club

Arsenal has already lost transfer targets, Emi Buendia and Patson Daka in this window and they could be set to lose another attacking target.

Reports have linked the Gunners with a summer move for Eintracht Frankfurt striker, Andre Silva.

The Portugal international scored 28 goals from 32 Bundesliga games last season for the Frankfurt club.

His form attracted the attention of Arsenal, who could sell Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah this summer.

Their summer transfer budget remains unclear, but they have been linked with moves for a number of players recently.

If they are serious about signing Silva, then they would likely face disappointment in their bid to take him to London.

This is because Todofichajes reports that the former Sevilla man is joining RB Leipzig this summer.

The Germans finished second in the German top flight last season and they want to strengthen their squad to ensure that it remains competitive next season.

The report acknowledges that he had interest from teams all around Europe, but he has decided to remain in Germany.

Leipzig will pay €23M for his signature, a fee that represents a bargain for his form last season.

He becomes the latest Arsenal target not to make the move to the Emirates this summer.

    Good for tap ins, headers and pens – not unhappy we didn’t sign him at the price. Were we ever really interested?

    We have to be realistic about our expectations of transfer targets. The world sees the way players are treated by Arsenal Management, I will not list victims here. So that will infect and discourage players that would otherwise have considered Arsenal. The issue is not entirely money but the care, emotional intelligence, and character of the Head coach or Manager. I can mention role models like Klopp, Mancini, Conte that are able to manage players with attitudes and their need to maintain their poise.

      Totally agree. It’s one thing to be a big club also another thing to be a fan but then players will always love themselves more than they love arsenal. In the last couple of years we have been poor at player management. Players losing value drastically because of rift with management. Something need to change.

    Arsenal needs a different type of striker, Calvin lewin ticks all the right boxes and premiership proven. Could surprise a few people if we managed to get him.

    I would like it when arsenal will go for a premier league striker who has the experience in epl games rather than than going for new faces whom would be struggling to establish themselves in the league for for instance laccazate and pepe,,,,,,,, let’s make moves and try this premier league player’s whom they’ve already established themselves for the likes of Calvert lewin, Harry cane and ferminho
