Club places an €80m price tag on Arsenal target

Darwin Nunez has become one of Arsenal’s main transfer targets as they search for new strikers.

The Gunners have lost some important players recently, most notably, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The striker joined Barcelona in the last transfer window and they could also lose Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in the summer.

These departures mean they will need to add some new players when the transfer window reopens.

Attackers will be the primary targets that will join them, and Nunez might be one of them.

However, he will not come cheap with a report via Sport Witness revealing that Benfica will ask for around €80m before parting ways with him.

The Uruguayan’s release clause costs even more, and that has given his present employers good leverage in their bid to sell him for the highest possible fee.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Signing a top-quality striker will cost us a lot of money and we need to be prepared to spend when the transfer window reopens.

Clubs know we are an elite institution that needs to bolster its squad with a goal-scorer, so they will try hard to make us pay a lot of money for their players.

If Nunez has been identified as our top attacking target, then we should be prepared to pay what Benfica wants for his signature.

  1. Darwin Nunez is not my favorite striker I would like to see join the club but who am I to go against his signature.

    There is a lot of noise and argument make as to him joining us, and there is reason to believe he maybe our top target as a striker.

    Honestly have not seen much of the lad, but herd he has a good work ethic, very dominant in the air and lethal infront of goal, all these factors would make him a great signing in the marquee bracket.

    Having been a fan that had trust the process , and seing how the process work with Ramsdale and the other recent signings am inclined to fall in line behind the gaffer.

    My favorite though is Victor Osimhen, it will be interesting if we sign Nunez though, if that would allow us to keep Laca

  2. There’s just few options available out there, that’s why these strikers are damn expensive. But I trust the team to make a right decision.

    But I believe we have a lot of young stars coming through and any forward we bring in should be world class or atleast an upgrade

  3. Great goal scorer with lots of potential to excel in PL but his price tag is way too high. Arsenal can rather activate 67M release clause for Haaland.

  4. If Nunez is so expensive, we could get Haaland for some more money, provided of course if Haaland is ready to come. Else, Nunez is a great option.
