Does Arsenal really want to sign Brian Brobbey from Ajax?

Ajax striker Brian Brobbey is one of the frontmen linked with a move to Arsenal as the Gunners look to strengthen their attack.

The Dutchman has been one of the finest attackers at his club, gaining attention for his impressive performances.

He has previously expressed that he would jump at the chance to play for a top club like Arsenal.

The Gunners, being one of the biggest clubs in Europe, have continued to improve their squad and are expected to need a new striker. Brobbey is one of the options on their shopping list.

However, a report on Football Insider claims that while Brobbey is among their options, Arsenal has not made any advanced efforts to sign him.

The report states that Arsenal has several names on their shortlist and hopes to get the right man in, but they do not consider Brobbey to be the ideal choice at this time.

They continue to monitor him and other targets and will make a decision before the transfer window closes.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Brobbey is a fine striker, but he does not seem much better than our current options, and he might struggle in the Premier League. 


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. “Brobbey is a fine striker, but he does not seem much better than our current options”

    What are our options in a 30-mil category?
    Brobbey is better than Nketiah, and more effective than Jesus in terms of final output. Jesus is more technically gifted but always suffers from poor decision making in the box and prefers going down to the ground than keeping the ball alive. Brobbey is not as technical but for the price range, he is great as a backup striker we need. I don’t see any problem.

    1. what i think the comment means is not better enough, i.e. Arsenal need a massive upgrade in the striker department, not just a marginal one, and particularly a margin one untested in the PL

      Arsenal have one go at the new striker, the striker needs to be game changing or no point

      remember the new striker has to walk in to the team and make material improvement immediately to topple Man C – Brobbey does not feel anywhere near that confidence

      1. With Nketiah and Jesus on the bench as substitutes, Arsenal almost scored the most goals than every other team. Replacing them with someone like Brobbey is an upgrade.

        Also, what we don’t realize is, when we lose matches, we almost always make the point that we couldn’t score any or enough goals, but completely ignore the fact, we probably let a goal or two more in at our end, making us lose.

        We always make a point that the Striker needs to be the “Chosen One” but we almost never think of our defense in that way.

        I think Arteta is going for much better defense, and we need reliable unselfish backup striker to Havertz, which we don’t have. Nketiah and Jesus both have the tendency of being selfish and attempt shots that almost never go in. Also, they lack that physicality to hold defenders in the box and still bring other players into play, which Brobbey does really well. I think he will be a super backup for us, if we get in.

  2. Us will soon know the new striker who Arsenal will sign this summer when they have signed him.
    But in all honesty, Brain Brobbey looks to be far better than the two upfront options of GJesus and E Nkethia in terms of many goals scored per season. The duo strikers who Arsenal current have on their team. But one of whom has to give way for a new prolific goals scoring striker arrival at Arsenal this summer.

  3. The was a media report a little while ago that suggested Arsenal’s “short list” of potential striking targets was up to 10 names long! If true, then Brobbey could be only one of almost a whole team’s worth of possibilities.

    It’s probably best to wait and see how the transfer window develops in the next week or two now that the Euros are coming to an end (which have stalled a lot of transfer activity).
