Arsenal finds an alternative striker target to Edouard

Arsenal has found a new striker alternative to Odsonne Edouard as competition for the Frenchman continues to heat up.

The Gunners would be in the transfer market for reinforcements in the summer and one position that they would need to strengthen is their attack.

They have to decide on the future of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah when this campaign finishes.

Both players are entering the final year of their current deals and look to be heading for the exit door.

Lacazette’s current form might force them to give him a new deal, however, uncertainty still surrounds him.

Edouard has been linked with a move to Arsenal since last summer when the Gunners wanted to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Frenchman also has interest from Leicester City and he might choose a reunion with Brendan Rodgers over a move to the Emirates.

With that in mind, the Gunners have made KAA Gent striker Roman Yaremchuk a target as an alternative to Edouard, according to Het Laatste News.

The Ukrainian has scored 15 goals in 27 league games this season and these numbers could make a tremendous difference in the current Arsenal team next season.

A move for him would cost around £20million.

    Thanks but no thanks.

    We have Bolugun & Martinelli to develop and they need game time or what’s the point. Just look at Saka & SmithRowe when given the opportunity to shine and they have carried this team this season.

    If we can not get an CF, and I dont think we should considering the world we live in atm and finances for a huge deal for a striker when we need elsewhere replaced in the team.

    Let Laca decide what he wants to do, put a 2year extension infront of him or Sell him, hes playing well enough for a bigger fee than a few months ago OR we keep him and let him go on a free as we have saved millions in SmithRowe, Saka, Martinelli (7m) & Bolugun. Plus we have Azeez(CM), Moller(CF), Lopez(LB) & quite a few others in Hart, Hutchinson etc… that could all come through.

    We can get a few million for Torreira, Guendouzi, Kolasnic, Eddie (buyback option), Bellerin (Chambers can do the job with Soares), Elneny & Willian. Luiz will leave on a free but Saliba will come straight into his place.

    Next question is what do we do with AMN, Willock & Mavraponas who also have bee good on loan.
    Willock – Cabellos when leaves
    AMN – Elneny replacement
    Dino – Challenge Mari, Rob, Gab&Sal

    Or can be sold?

    We need a LB to cover Teirney. CBs & RB were ok, Need a CM (Bissouma), AM (Help SmithRowe, Ødegaard not staying) and maybe an Attacker depending on Laca & Aubas Futures.

    Now that AMN and Willock are getting fairly regular first team football, I don’t think they will be happy to come back and sit on the bench for most of next season

    With regards to Edouard,if the jocks start playing silly buggers with tel no transfer fees,Arsenal may turn their attention to Andre Silva(£30 million get out clause at Frankfurt). With regards to CM this is vital.Bissouma Prob forst choice.Then again Brighton would also be looking for tel nos.( British premium) & competition elsewhere in the prem.Though is a boyhood gooner!other choice is Boubacar soumare.A beast.AM .if not Odegaard then Buendia.But again ,British premium & tel nos being talked.

    Instead of striker Arsenal should spend money to secure a good LW (because we already have Auba, Martinelli and any one of Nekietia or Balogan) with traits similar to Alexis Sanchez.
    If we will have a proper LW (not Willian) then the performance of our strikers will definitely improve.
    Because Auba and Martinelli have a good pace to exploit back line and a winger who could dribble and make chances for them will surely improve the performance of our strikers.

    “Edouard has been linked with a move to Arsenal since last summer when the Gunners wanted to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang”…what a ridiculous statement, no doubt tainted by recent events…why would a team who wanted to get rid of Auba instead sign him to a very lucrative 3 year deal

    But French eddy the 24year old under 21 star can score a penalty against Hamilton and would be free 🤔 no brainer….
