Do Arsenal still need a recognised striker after Trossard?

Nothing Has Gone According To Plan, But Edu Should Provide Arteta With A New Source Of Goals

If Arteta had a winter transfer plan for Arsenal, I don’t think I’d be wrong to suggest that things haven’t gone as planned in the days leading up to deadline day. With only week until the winter transfer deadline, Arteta may now have to consider even if only one deal can keep his team in contention for the Premier League title.

Frank McAvennie is well aware of Arsenal’s predicament, and he believes that signing a top striker this month is the only way forward. “I think if Arsenal get a brilliant out-and-out striker, that is what they need,” McAvennie told Football Insider. “Jesus could play off any decent striker. That would be a match made in heaven. Jesus is a good player. I get that he is not an out-and-out striker, but he is not doing too bad.

“If they got a striker in Arsenal, they would be scoring more goals, and they are already scoring quite a few without an out-and-out striker.”

For the better part of the day, reports have suggested Arsenal are in advanced negotiations with Brighton over the permanent signing of Leandro Trossard. He may just be the man McAvennie was talking about, considering what Roberto De Zerbi said sometime back about the 28-year-old.

“In different positions, he can score more, I think, he can play 90 minutes, but I spoke with the team about this, because if he plays 90 minutes, he can have more of a chance to score and to play better,” said De Zerbi, as per Football London.

But it is a fact that he is not a centre-forward in the real sense of the word, so we still need a backup to Nketiah, don’t we?

  1. 🚨 BREAKING: Arsenal set to sign Spezia centre back Jakub Kiwior for €25M. The player has already travelled to London for medicals.🔴🤝🇵🇱 #AFC

    Another left field signing not sure what to make of this 🧐

    1. A backup for Gabriel M. To have at least two left footed central backs. Right now Gabriel is playing every game including all cup games.

  2. Fabrizio Romano:
    🗣“Trossard had some opportunities in France & of course England, but he only wanted Arsenal. He immediately said yes to Arsenal when they called him, when Mikel Arteta also had the conversation with the player. Trossard was super happy about this possibility.”

    This what we want to hear players willing to play for Gunners not Raphinha/ Vlahovic and the likes.

    Now on the article we don’t need any coward for Jesus will be back soon just sign a midfielder if not we still good to go onwards and upwards.

  3. Is Man City a better team for buying Haaland and selling Jesus?

    I don’t think so and the evidence is that they look fragile this season. Even in their 4-2 win v Spurs they had to come back from 2-0 down at half time.

    City were better without a striker and Haaland’s heat maps show that he doesn’t add much to their general play. They’re almost playing 10 v 11 until they get near the opponents’ box.

    They played without a recognised striker for years and were a dominant side.

    Now look at Arsenal with Jesus. If he’s not a recognised striker then we have been playing without striker this season and look at the difference. Lots of people are scoring goals. So… let’s keep on doing that then.

    Midfield may be a priority for new players, we may need defensive cover for injuries too (there seem to be reports of someone incoming today).

    1. Yes he is but how many minutes did he play and how many goals he scored
      We don’t need a out and out striker…we have one…We need players that can score goals
      Man city scored 45 goals this season and Arsenal scored 42 goals this season with a game in hand
      Difference is Arsenal have a lot of players who can score goals….goals can come from any player…we have I think 13 players who scored goals this season

  4. I said it loud and clear that we were not going to buy MM. I knew that Edu and our ever meticulous. manager always has a plan B that is better than plan A. The blood of Arsene Wenger is running in them. HOW CAN WE SPEND $100MILLION DOLLARS ON A YOUNG MAN THAT HAS NOT TESTED PREMIERSHIP ‘WAR’. WILL REFEREE AWARD US A GOAL WHENEVER THE BALL GETS TO HIM… ARSENE WENGER QUOTE HAHAHA
