In-form Ollie Watkins is now on Arsenal’s shopping list

Arsenal has included Ollie Watkins in their shopping list as the Aston Villa striker cannot stop scoring.

The Gunners will be in the market for a new striker in the summer and have been linked with several players for that role.

Mikel Arteta and those in charge of transfers at the Emirates are working on a list, with Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen reportedly part of their targets.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for Watkins in the past and failed to add him to their squad, but his current run of form is too hot to ignore.

Watkins has scored 14 goals and provided 10 assists in 26 Premier League games this season, making him irresistible to clubs.

The Sun reveals that he is now on Arsenal’s radar as one of the players they could add to their squad in the summer transfer window.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Watkins has undeniably been one of the best strikers in the Premier League this season, and his form is hard to ignore.

The Villa man would also be happy to move to the Emirates, but his ambitious employers will be eager to keep him, especially if they surprisingly secure a Champions League spot at the end of the season.

  1. He’s a really good fit but might not come cheap. From the way we are getting goals now, it’s better to sign a younger striker like Gyokeres at a cheaper prize in order to allow room to improve other areas.

    Signing midfielders that can also add goals or provide assists could be a good idea.

    Havertz could easily have scored 3 goals vs Newcastle. The good thing is he’s getting more confident as he makes good runs. He needs to keep a cool head.

  2. We need a striker that breaks the deadlocks he needs to be proven we cant have a striker on 4-5 goals even if the rest of team is scoring. How can we go a mat h against porto with no shots

  3. He would fit Arteta’s style of play, and his 14 goals 10 assists type production seem to be what Arteta wants from a striker.

    Watkins would be an offensive upgrade on Jesus, and Jesus can split time playing as striker and RW.

    Watkins cost would but astronomical, and likely soak up much of our transfer kitty. Perhaps we would get more overall value for the squad with 2 midfielders and a different option as striker.

  4. Not my favourite. Having a good season, but don’t think he’s top quality enough to do that every season.

    1. Yeah.. He has never really convinced me… Good numbers though… I like the Gyokeres option.. Leaves us with a bit more in our kitty to bolster the midfield
