Is Arsenal close to losing another key attacking target?

Arsenal is among the clubs looking to sign Darwin Nunez at the end of this season following his stunning form for Benfica.

The Uruguayan has become a key member of the team that reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

They showed their quality in the game against Liverpool even though they lost on aggregate.

His performance against the Reds, especially in England, proved that he can thrive in the Premier League if he moves here.

This should offer encouragement to Arsenal in their bid to land him. However, The Daily Mail claims they are not the only club looking to sign him.

They will face competition from Newcastle United and several other sides around Europe.

The Magpies could even beat them to his signature because they have tabled an offer of around £49million for his signature already.

However, Benfica is reportedly holding out for £60million.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Nunez will become the next top striker that moves to a big European league, and it would make sense if we sign him.

His goal-scoring prowess is phenomenal, and it can get better while playing under Mikel Arteta at the Emirates.

Even at £60million, he would not be a bad buy, and it would hurt deeper if he joins another Premier League club.

  1. Bruno Guimaraes has more PL goals this season than Partey, Xhaka, Elneny, ASL combined.

    Good thing we let him join Newcastle in January.

  2. What I’ve read recently he will be in massive demand come summer he’s the reserve of the teams that cannot get Harland ,we have no chance .

  3. Forget Nunez, Osimeh. Never gonna happen. Keeping high ambition is a good thing, but remaining realistic should be the right call. Identifying targets who are an upgrade over what we have and also who are likely to sign for us, and pushing hard for those than just building a false hype around top class players. Tired of this in every transfer window.

  4. In the end, I won’t be surprised to see either DCL or Richarlision in Arsenal shirt. Or even Ollie watkins.

    I would be happy if we could sign Ivan Toney and Cody gapko, which is a doubt as well. Or even Broja maybe. Can’t keep high hopes here.
