Arsenal could land solution to their goalscoring problem in cut-price deal

Mirror Football says that Arsenal can land Maxi Gomez in a cut-price deal next month.

This is because Valencia is still on a selling spree as they try to recover from the financial losses meted on them by the coronavirus pandemic.

Los Che has sold a host of players in the last few months as they look to cushion the effect of the pandemic, but the report says that more players will be sold and Gomez isn’t safe.

The Uruguayan has emerged as a target for Arsenal as they continue to struggle to score goals recently.

With the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette on their books, Arsenal is still struggling for goals and a new striker might be needed to get them back to form.

With their season threatening to fall apart, Arsenal is expected to make some transfers in the next window.

Gomez has a release clause of £125m on his current deal, but the report says that figure is redundant while the Spanish side looks to make as much money as they can to stay afloat.

Arsenal’s top target should be a creative midfielder, but they might not want to pass up the chance to land Gomez now as well.

    According to Transfermarkt, he’s shorter than Aubameyang. We need a taller and stronger CF who’s willing to fight for the ball in the air

    Better get Ludovic Ajorque. I bet Aubameyang/ Lacazette would be happy to get another French-speaking player in their gang and he could be willing to sit on the bench too

      How tall is Messi is? Gomez is way better compare to what we have, he can head the ball, hold up the ball and shoot! neither Auba or Laca can do that

    In playing terms he is very similar to Danny Ings, but rather than contemplate taking another risk at this time of year I would give Balogun an opportunity to prove himself on the big stage.

      Grandad, i dont believe for one second maxi gomez will be wearing red and white in January but do you honestly think that Balogun will be played in the prem this season?

    The same Burnley that trashed us in our home is the same Burnley that is trashing wolves 2-0. that shows how the mighty has fallen

    I have been asking, Which team in EPL can we be confident to beat.
    We need a change of plan. A shake up.

    1. RFrancis says:

      A shake up! Really? With no regard for the UK travel ban and other restrictions.

    Maxi isn’t the answer, he’s the problem…we can’t afford to take another chance on someone who has wildly underperformed…unless they want to do a 3 for 1 swap, so we can address some of our wage bill issues…if we’re going to get a target man we need someone with a proven track record, like Weghorst, or a young high floor, unlimited ceiling prospect, which is undoubtedly a more difficult proposition considering we got rid of Diamond Eye and fired all our scouts

    Arsenal do have quality players – why do you think another quality player would be the solution? The solution is in the heads of the players. The have to fight for and believe in the Arsenal way of playing football. We have to build a strong unit of what, we have. Again: Buying new players is not always the solution.

  8. Joseph says:

    This players need to be taken to a serious boot camp!!

    Ive been a Valencia fan for almost as long as an Arsenal one. This guy is a complete forward. He can pass, he has incredible feet, pace, power, superb in the air. With Valencia’s mafia owner asset stripping the club by selling players on the cheap, this could be a good opportunity.
