Arsenal will prioritise signing a striker over a midfielder when the transfer window reopens

Arsenal fan and journalist Chris Wheatley says Arsenal’s priority will be to sign a new striker in the next transfer windows.

Their attack is one position the Gunners failed to strengthen in the last transfer window.

They brought in reinforcements for the midfield and defence, but they have too many attacking options presently and they failed to offload the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in the transfer window.

Both strikers are now expected to run down their deal and leave the club at the end of this season.

The Gunners could also look to sell them in the January transfer window for the right price if there are offers.

Offloading both players will free up space for them to add attackers to their squad and the reporter says they will look to strengthen their attack the next chance that they get to add players to their squad.

He was answering questions in a Q&A session on Football London and said:

Arsenal will try to sign a forward in the next transfer windows. Isak would be a great option and there is certainly interest, although I have personally not heard anything concrete about En-Nesyri.

“A forward would be prioritised over a midfielder with Lacazette and Nketiah both expected to leave next summer.”

  1. I will sign the Genk & Nigerian gangling striker, Paul Onuachu or Atlanta’s Duvan Zapata if I was opportuned 2 do so. Our scouts these days are pathetically incompetent.

  2. Auba could well be sold next summer also as he will be going into the last year of his deal and hes not getting any younger…

    If we try to get rid of Laca & Eddie come Jan then they need to do a Willian and leave for the sake of their careers.

    If we get rid of the 3 then we need a superstar signing who can Finish (Auba), Hold the play up (Laca), Speed/Youth (Eddie) but all depends on where we finish this season.

    Haaland would be the perfect striker for Arsenal but would never happen without UCL football. Especially with Ødegaard here but Arsenal needs to wake up. Offer Dortmund alot of money plus Auba if we are to prioritise the striking areas as we still have Balogun & Martinelli to learn.

    Hes City or Madrid bound but Madrid are for Mbappe & City have the upper hand with his Father playing there and being one of the best teams in the world under Pep.

    Get us a decent manager and players may want to come and play under him. Arteta cant entice players to come to Arsenal, big players want to play under big managers!!

    Just a thought for today!!

  3. Alexander Isaak is a good option, the Swedish international has pace, power and precision and can combine the qualities of Auba, Laca and Nketiah. Personally, however I feel either Auba or Laca must stay since experience is also required at this level and both have qualities that cannot be overlooked.

  4. Saying Arsenal will sign a Striker over a Defensive Midfielder in the next transfer window, seems to me extremely presumptuous.

    There seems to be an assumption that we have already fixed our defense. I would wait until April before I make that kind of assumption!!!!!
