Arsenal has an impressive list of strikers they are targeting

According to reports, Arsenal has started their search for a striker, with five players from Europe scouted by the club for the upcoming summer transfer window.

Although the Gunners have had an impressive season, they are not resting on their laurels and are actively working on improving their squad.

While a top-class midfielder is a priority, the club is also looking to bolster their striking department. Currently, Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah are part of the squad, with loanee Folarin Balogun impressing at Reims with his goal-scoring record.

However, Arsenal may need a more physical striker to provide them with another option in attack, particularly when teams defend deep.

The Evening Standard reports that Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Dusan Vlahovic, Tammy Abraham, Victor Osimhen, and Rasmus Hojlund have been scouted by Arsenal.

Of these, Osimhen is considered to be the least realistic option due to his status as one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe.

Vlahovic, who famously turned down a move to London in favour of joining Juventus, has scored 20 goals in 49 appearances for the Italian giants.

Calvert-Lewin is Premier League-proven but has had a difficult season due to injury, while Abraham has done well in Italy after joining Roma in 2021.

Finally, Arsenal has also taken note of Hojlund, who scored five goals in two games for Denmark last week at the age of 20.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal’s priority remains a top-class midfielder, but the scouting of strikers shows that the club is planning to bolster their squad in multiple areas. With 10 games remaining in the Premier League, Arsenal is still in contention for their first title in 20 years, but they are already looking ahead to next season.

  1. Hope we get a good one. Next season will be much tougher and more teams challenging for the title

  2. This why Balogun should’ve been given all the chances that Eddie got this season. We already knew what Eddie could do and that he was unlikely to be good enough, remember he’s had many chances (involved in 124 games!!!).

    Do we risk bringing Balogun back as our back up striker? Or do we need to buy? We don’t know now.

  3. I say we give Balogun a chance. Of we are gonna bring in another top quality striker Nketia needs to go

      1. Can’t think of many players, but AMN and Lokonga both have been getting a decent amount of minutes lately. Shame we didn’t loan them from the start of the season

    1. Not sure Nketiah will come good for arsenal, he’s just too average. Preferably balogun if we can’t get any other from the market.
      But I would Osimen, he’s a beast.

  4. More Physical Striker, very physical and quality central Midfielder and a right back.

  5. It’s quite dicy with Balogun, I think he should be loaned out for another season in the Championship/EPL, in the end, if Balogun performs, he could be sold at premium or he joins the team with his guns.
    We do need quality CMs and a backup CF, Nketiah also needs to go or be loaned out, he’s gotten enough chance and hasn’t proved to be on that level,
    I just hope we win the EPL, it would really be a good foundation the players for next season.
