Arsenal is now behind Premier League rival is the race for Salzburg star

Zambian Football is reporting that West Ham is leading Arsenal in the race to sign Patson Daka.

The RB Salzburg star has been scoring goals with reckless abandon after stepping up to fill the void left by Erling Haaland’s departure to Borussia Dortmund.

He looks set to become the next big player to leave the Austrian side as they continue to churn out talent after talent.

Daka scored 27 goals in 28 league games last season to continue his prolific run of form for them.

At 22, he has a lot of time to get even better and we expect him to leave them anytime now.

Arsenal faces a dilemma over which of their strikers will be sold and which would be kept on.

Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah have expiring deals and it remains unclear if they would be allowed to leave.

If any is sold, the Gunners will need a replacement and they could do a lot worse than Daka right now.

The report says the Hammers haven’t really replaced Sebastian Haller who left them in January and they see Daka as the perfect replacement for the Ivorian.

Arsenal has promoted Folarin Balogun to the first team and that makes selling at least one striker this summer very likely before they can sign Daka.

    We’ll probably go again this season with Aubameyang, Lacazette and Nketiah 😞

    Arsenal must do everything to get the Zalzburg star to help the team.

    This is the striker to replace Laca, move now Arsenal, prob be worth triple the price next three years. Get in there quick.

    Daka and the other goal scoring monster from
    Genk( name escapes me atm) would both be
    welcomed additions to the Emirates if Edu and
    MA decide to move Laca on this summer. A strike
    force of Auba/Baolgun and possibly Martinelli,
    even without European futbol isn’t prolific enough
    to propel Arsenal into serious contention for
    Champions League futbol IMWO.

    My perfect window

    IN:

    P Daka—-£22M
    E. Buendia—-£25M + R Nelson
    I. Sangare—-£15M
    N. Mazraoui—-£15M
    F. Woodman—-£15M
    P. van Aanholt—-free

    Approx. £90M spent

    OUT:

    Xhaka—£20M
    Bellerin—-£15-20M
    Guendouzi—-£15M
    Nkietah—-£10–15M
    AMN——£15M
    Laca—-£20M

    Even selling at the low end price AFC could
    recoup nearly £95M by moving on these players
    and would have a ridiculously low net spend
    for the window.

    Loan Torreria(£3M), Mavro(£5M) and Willock(£5M)
    out for another year. LOVE JW, but where is he
    going to play with Buendia and ESR competing
    @ CAM?

    I would love for Edu and MA to shoot for the stars
    and target WC players like Hachimi/Haaland
    Grealish, etc but sadly the lack of CL futbol and
    the ridiculous transfer fees( and wages) required
    to attract these names is simply beyond Arsenal’s
    reach at the moment.

    Daka/Auba
    Pepe….Buendia…Saka
    Partey…Sangare
    KT….Gabriel….Saliba….Mazraoui
    Leno

      On point. I just like your comment, perfect .

      Sangare😂😂😂😂😂

      I swear people on here come up with the funniest names. Have you ever seen Sangare play? Im sure you havent. I see him week in week out and he is an absolute joke. The dutch media are laughing their balls out. He is a good tackler, but terrible on the ball. And boy do I mean terrible.

        Ivory Coast international, one of the best midfielders
        In Ligue 1 playing for a terrible Toulouse squad a
        few years back. Could care less if he hasn’t impressed
        in such a crap, Flair biased league like the
        Eredivisie. Dude is a tenacious, athletic enforcer
        who would thrive next to Partey in the EPL.

  5. Atangana says:

    Terrible to learn that Arsenal is not in the hunt for a striker when the had the fewest goals among the firsr 9 teams.
