Could this Man United star be the answer to Arteta’s striker problem?

It must be said that many Arsenal fans cannot help but be worried about the lack of strikers at the club since the departure of Aubameyang. It doesn’t help that our only two recognised Number 9’s are currently Eddie Nketiah and Alex Lacazette, who have only scored 3 goals between them all season.

Furthermore, both of those players look likely to be moving on this summer unless Mikel Arteta can persuade one of them to sign an extension, so who will be scoring our goals in the next campaign?

One hitman that is likely to be on the market this summer is Man United’s Marcus Rashford, whose contract at Old Trafford runs out in 2023 and is finding very little game time this season. Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that he is unhappy under Rangnick, with this tweet…..

One thing is sure, Rashford’s talent is wasted sitting on the bench, and considering he is just 24 years of age but is vastly experienced, he ticks all the boxes in the profile of players that Arteta is targetting, and if Arsenal beat Man United to the Champions League places I am sure he would love to join Arteta’s revolution.

What do you think Gooners? Could Rashford do the job for Arsenal?

Mikel Arteta’s FULL press conference after Watford win –

Tags Marcus Rashford


  1. I think its highly unlikely. Knowing how United demanded 20-30 million for Lingard with 6 months left in his contract, they surely demand +50 million for Rashford.

  2. I would offer Nketiah as a straight swap no cash deal and offer 50k p/w salary. Otherwise no. We can do much better. Balogun on 45k p/w would be a superior option.

  3. Personally I wouldn’t go anywhere near Rashford as a signing. He has had too many injury issues and in particular that back issue, not worth the risk for someone who would surely be around the £50m mark.

    if we could get him on a free the year after or close for a small fee in the Jan window then id be tempted to take the punt.

  4. I would be very happy if he joined Arsenal.He’s talented, fast, goalscorer and tall. Arteta is famous for developing players’ abilities and would strengthen his weaknesses. The inability to keep the ball under high pressure and how to put pressure on opponents when the ball is lost.

  5. Never thought of Rashford, sounds like he can do the job but neither him nor Martinelli can shield the ball like Lacazette without injuries, so we may have to be more fluid for his introduction,
    This would mean Martinelli plays CF with Rashford on the left or Rashford plays our 2nd striker,

  6. Rashford would be a wonderful addition and I would welcome him all day. He is pacy, precise and powerful. He is good on the press and can take on defenders one on one. He has got PL experience, so thats a bonus, no settling time required. However, I would still keep Laca for his all round game, work rate and link up play. Nketiah should be allowed to leave and amongst Laca, Martinelli and Rashford, rotate for the striker position and LW position and would be a great strike force with Saka on the opposite end.

  7. I reckon he fits the profile of what we might be looking for even if it would have a faint whiff of Danny Welbeck about it

    He comes over to me more of an Arsenal type player than a ManU one at the moment but hard to imagine them letting him go in their current situation, surely they would let any new Manager come in and carry out his own assessments before letting anybody go, although I don’t think they have that luxury with Pogba as he will be out of contract and is probably already on his bike

  8. The era of Arsenal scooping up rejects and flops from our rivals have gone , as Arsenal should never be their Dump yard again. There are quite a few talents in Europe and South America that Arsenal should be looking at instead of Rashford (flop) like Darwin Nunez, Karim Adeyemi, Patrik Schick, Erling Haaland and Jonathan David or even Noa Okafor. Why give Manchester United fifty plus million pounds for Rashford, which, they will use to help them buy one of these strikers. Arsenal needs a quality striker that can take the team to the next level.

  9. Rashford is a fantastic player who needs a good and solid bedding ground to develop. I would take him and Greenwood to complete a very exciting and dangerous young squad!!
