Ever since the season ended, it would appear that Arsenal have been linked with every single player that may have a chance to replace Alexis Sanchez in the Gunners forward line. It started with Mbappe with a price of 100 million which seemed a little unrealistic, then apparently we were going for Alexandre Lacazette at 60 million and we are reckoned to be front-runners despite the player himself saying that he would prefer a team in the Champions League. James Rodriguez was mentioned a few times until Chelsea were going to take him to replace Fabregas.
We have been linked with the ex-Chelsea flop Juan Cuadrado and this morning we have been associated with the Atletico man Yannick Carrasco.
The latest Arsenal rumour is that we are going to rival Everton for the AC Milan striker M’Baye Niang, who was so impressive on loan at Watford last season that he scored twice in 16 appearances for the Hornets. It seems Watford have decided not to take the option to buy and so Arsenal are now in the frame? I doubt that very much!
The way I see it, Arsene Wenger may well have a few possible striker targets, but they would have to be of the quality of Mbappe or at least Lacazette to appease the fans and convince them that they are trying to replace Alexis’ goals next season, but the only player I can see Niang replacing is Yaya Sanogo!
Which of these rumours strike you as having a chance of being true?
