Arsenal’s transfer links reportedly point to signing a player in this position

Arsenal is targeting a left-wing attacker considering the type of players reports have linked them to in recent weeks, 101greatgoals claims.

The Gunners remain active in the transfer market as they attempt to revamp their squad and start their journey back to the Premier League’s top four.

They have used Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a centre-forward in most of the matches this season.

However, the Gabon captain was used mostly as a left-wing forward by Mikel Arteta before this campaign.

Now that he is in the middle, Arsenal has been using Emile Smith Rowe to attack their opponents from that area.

But the Englishman is a number 10 and is only a makeshift player in that position because the likes of Gabriel Martinelli has failed to impress Arteta.

The report then claims that Goncalo Guedes and Lorenzo Insigne have both been linked with a move to the Emirates recently and that points to the fact that Arteta wants to strengthen their left-wing attacking spot.

Insigne is famous for cutting in from that position and scoring worldies for Napoli, while Guedes has been delivering goals and assists off that position for Valencia.

Both players will represent fine additions to the current Arsenal squad and it will be interesting to see which of them eventually moves to the Emirates.

    Arteta can buy as many players as he want, but the stumbling block is his understanding of the game. He has already bought 11 players since his arrival. How many more players does he need to achieve his mandate?

      With ESR, Saka, Pepe ,Martinelli and Auba all capable of playing on the LW, why on earth would we pursue another.Like many sides we need a central striker with pace,physicality and goal scoring ability.In the Premier League players like Bamford, Wadkins,Tone and my own preference, Calvin Lewin, fit the bill.Lacazette is our top CF imo, and really should be starting games as Auba is decidedly limited and cannot seem to hold the ball and link with others particularly our attacking midfielders.

    Upfront is clearly needs improving so it’s good news that this is being looked at.

    Both of those players would not come to Arsenal, Insigne 100% won’t, Guedes, im not 100% sure.

    But, i highly doubt either has the profile MA is after.

    I dont see the point of bringing in an attacker of these two players ilk and not bring in the likes of DCL or Toney.

    What i see of late is that we can play in the middle, we can counter very well, our defence is pretty sound at this moment in time, but what we lack really is Ariel threat and someone who can hold the ball ups o we can get our attackers up the pitch to relieve pressure and make our own attacks.

    obviously 2 very good players mentioned, i just dont see them fitting in with the ”process”

    Put Laca upfront and use Auba on the left, Saka on the right and ESR and Ode in the middle along with Partey. In January or next summer sign a target man, a perfect striker like Dominic Kalvert Louin, Wotkins, Isak or Bamford.
