Arsenal is interested in a move for Luka Jovic as they continue their search for new attackers when the summer transfer opens.
The Gunners could have lost three main attackers in six months by the summer if Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette follow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s lead and leave the Emirates.
This will almost put the club in an attacking emergency and they have started working to avoid such a scenario from happening.
Mikel Arteta’s side remains one of the contenders for a top-four finish, but they will need reinforcements to help them make an impression in the Champions League if they qualify for the competition.
A new report via Sports Witness claims they are now looking to add Jovic to their squad as he struggles in Madrid.
They can sign him for 30m euros from the Spanish club, but he could also be allowed to move to London on an initial loan deal.
The report claims Arteta believes the Serbian can become the next goal machine at the Emirates despite his poor stint at Madrid.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Jovic has struggled to replicate the form he showed at Eintracht Frankfurt, which earned him his transfer to Real Madrid.
However, he is not the first player to struggle in the Spanish capital and Arteta can help him get back to his best as he has done with Martin Odegaard.
Taking him on loan would solve our backup striker slot, with little cost or risk. That’s more funds available for a 1st choice striker, and to bring in midfielders to help us get to the next level.
I would get the deal done if it’s a loan, but without a “must buy” clause. The loan will help tell if he is a bad fit at Real, or if he was a one season wonder and his form is his level.
Well said Durand!
Well said @Durand, A loan makes sense, we can then spend more on the midfield and get another super striker.
I’d take the €30 mil risk, but we’d still need another striker . There’s never any guarantees whoever we sign.
My main objection to how JA constantly passes on these plainly false rumours, is that the dubious sites they use to extract the false rumours are never actually questioned by JA.
JA simple takes any old false rumour from any old site whatsoever without ever questioning that sites credentials as honest or reliable.
It is the equivalent of ussing cowboy tradespeople instead of respected and honest ones Not for me, at least ethics wise.
JA takes us for gullible fools, but very few of us are so.
