Arsenal attacking target sends out a clear message

Arsenal has been interested in a move for Darwin Nunez over the last few months as they plan to add new attackers to their squad.

Mikel Arteta allowed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to leave the club in the January transfer window and he could also lose Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette in the summer when they will be free agents.

This means Arsenal certainly needs new strikers and they hardly come better than Nunez.

The Uruguayan is having a great season at Benfica where he has scored 34 goals from 41 competitive games in this campaign alone.

That number makes him undeniably one of the best goal-scorers Arsenal can add to their squad.

But they are not the only club looking to add him to their squad. The Sun claims Manchester United is also keen to add the frontman to their team.

However, RMC Sport claims he has rejected the Red Devils’ approach because they will not play in the Champions League next season.

This is a clear message to Arsenal that they have to secure a top-four finish on the final day of the season if they want to add him to their squad.

Just Arsenal Opinion

If we don’t make the top four, we can expect to lose some of our current targets because the best players compete in the UCL.

At the moment, we need to prepare for the worse because our destiny is not in our hands.

This means we should have alternative targets in case our main ones ask for UCL football and we cannot offer it to them.

  1. We lost out of the top 4 because of our light weight and lack of speed in midfield and attack, we were bullied in the Crystal Palace match, same against Newcastle, Brighton,

    We must scout for a mixture of youth and experience, there’s nothing wrong in signing wijnaldum,

  2. Nunez would be a fool to sign for Arsenal. The club’s post-Wenger history of treating world class players brought in on big fees and high salaries is not good.

    Lacazette is leaving having been blamed for not scoring enough in Arteta’s full back-oriented, defense-first team set-up; Arteta tossed Aubameyang out like trash over a manufactured issue. Pepe is about to leave being called a flop, despite out performing Saka last year on far fewer minutes.

    Dusan Vlahovic refused to come and Nunez, if he’s smart, will do the same. Arsenal just cannot seem to accept the level of risk that comes with making big money signings; unlike Man City, Man U, and Chelsea, who can and are willing to afford similarly high-priced replacements when costly players flop, Arsenal are hamstrung and founder when top players under perform or do not have the expected impact.

    For example, when Timo Werner under performed, Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku.

    Arsenal fans, pundits, and management seem a lot more comfortable with relatively unknown players who perform better than expected and let their manager have the spotlight.
