Arsenal must go all out for this €20m goal machine this summer

Arsenal want Salzburg’s goal machine by Yash Bisht

According to various reports, Arsenal will hope to land RB Salzburg’s topscorer Patson Daka in the upcoming summer.

However, the Gunners are not the only one in the race for the prolific Zambian. Many fellow Premier League rivals are also believed to have identified Daka as a possible future signing.

The interest in the 22-year-old is no surprise. Daka has scored an astonishing 27 goals and assisted eight times in just 31 appearances this season.

Daka has been in surreal form in the past two years

Arsenal have often struggled in certain games due to the lack of versatility among Alexander Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

The Frenchman is excellent when it comes to linking up the play, but has weaknesses in terms of aerial prowess and finishing off chances.

While his counterpart often goes missing against superior teams and teams who set up with a “low-block.”

Arteta clearly wants a lot more from a center-forward than what Lacazette and Aubameyang provide at the moment.

Signing Daka would make perfect sense. The RB Salzburg man has great aerial prowess, technical ability as well as an eye for the goal.

At just 22, Arsenal might get a rough gem but one that can help from the get-go.

Valued at just €20million (£17m), he will have countless suitors. The one who signs him for such a nominal fee in today’s market can certainly get the deal of the summer transfer window.

    You seriously reckon he will be sold for £17 million? If he’s that good, try multiplying that by 3 or 4.
    If as in an earlier article Saka is worth £100+ million, he is worth £200 million. Cloud cuckoo land!

      You’re wrong.

      Haaland left the same club for £20M without COVID in play and Haaland was there main striker while Daka is a winger then.
      So the price might not be wrong in this COVID period

      remove elneny from your list……you may feel he aint good enough but he is a great backup player any coach would like to have in a team. very committed

    if we are going to sell Laca and knowing that Laca is in form right now ,Patson Daka is a perfect replacement and you know out their people are talking about Erling Haaland so much but not forgetting that is a former team mate of Patson Daka.Have watched Daka for years so I know what am talking about,you can’t compare him to Odsonne Edourd,Silver,Ben Yedder or Ivan Tony because he is quick fast and pace player and being an African he is a physical player no push around easily. Daka is a gem and is young can even develop to that level of a Didier Drogba, He was the top scorer at under 20 Africa where he scored against Mendy the current Chelsea goalkeeper. You know him Saka,martineli,pepe(Auba) or what a threat and future. COYG Smile

    Of course, on the heels of Haaland, it makes sense that his successor, with the form he’s currently showing, would draw some serious interest…maybe we would be wise to start prying away some of the scouts from both Salzburg and Frankfurt, as they seem to have a knack for unearthing talent…on a side note, another really interesting prospect, who currently plays at Stuttgart with Mavro, is Silas Wamangituka…although he plays out wide, most scouts list him as a striker…he’s 6’2 and is incredibly pacey

  5. Deke Reefer says:

    He certainly won’t be sold for £17M.
