Arsenal get boost as striker target’s club close in on his replacement

Are Dutch club Feyenoord ready for life without Arsenal striker target Santiago Gimenez? That’s the one question you’ll have after hearing the latest updates from the 2023–24 Eredivisie runners-up. According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Feyenoord are signing Argentine attacker Julian Carranza. Carranza joins them from MLS club Philadelphia Union.

When you look at Carranza and Feyenoord striker Gimenez, you can’t help but think the Dutch side is replacing its outstanding striker with the MLS standout. Gimenez is 1.83 meters tall, while Carranza is 1.82. Gimenez has 38 goals and 9 assists in 68 games for Feyenoord, while Carranza has 37 goals and 14 assists in 112 games for the Philadelphia Union. If not to replace Gimenez, Carranza’s signing wouldn’t have been considered.

However, for Arsenal, this is a boost in their striker quest. So far, it is unclear who the Gunners will sign. There is little chance that strikers such as Benjamin Sesko, Alexander Isak, and Victor Osimhen will join. The hope is that Arsenal has a clandestine transfer list, which may include a player like Santiago Gimenez.

According to reports in recent months, he is a striker that Arsenal have reportedly held talks with over a move to the Emirates.

If signed, the Mexican would inject pace and make Arsenal’s assault clinical; with 23 goals in 30 league games, he will undoubtedly join Arsenal with a bag full of goals.

So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. As a Feyenoord fan, I don’t think he is what we need.

    He started off good but then his form really dropped. He had 19 goals in 17 games in the first half of the season and in the second half of the season he scored only 4 goals in 13 games.

    He is not a great in combinations and apart from scoring, he doesn’t really add much. He is also not really fast. Imo not the striker that we need. He reminds me a bit of Eduardo, but less technical.

    1. thank you for your insight from a fan of both clubs

      a Nigeria/Arsenal fan gave similarly honest assessment of Osihmen the other day

      neither fit Arsenal system at all, and neither are the elite clinical goal machine lusted after

      Edu/Arteta are pretty picky, they will not commit unless they are 100% convinced

      i am starting to think there may be no incoming striker at all this summer

      1. Players pass through psychological challenges, and maybe that is what Gimenez passed through in the second part of the season.
        We have a good example of Kai Hervatz. He didn’t perform well in the first part of the season. But second part of the second he proved all the doubters wrong.
        Arteta is known on moulding players. Remember when joined the club Xakha was almost quitting the club. Xakha performed so well in his final season than ever before.
        Geminez is an excellent striker. And he is affordable. He is the type a striker that will fit in Arsenal system
