Progressive Viktor Gyokeres stats make him look perfect for Arsenal

If I were calling the shots at Arsenal, I’d willingly pay £80–90 million to bring Viktor Gyokeres to the Emirates Stadium.

Most Gooners aren’t worried about Arsenal’s striking next season due to Kai Havertz’s excellent end of season form. Even so, adding another source for goals other than the German international may take nothing from our game.

We may after all be better off fighting for them all — the Premier League, the Champions League, and the domestic cups — with two reliable centre forwards.

Victor Gyokeres has received a lot of attention, but his rapid development over the past few seasons, as you’ll see below, convinces me he’ll be a hit at the Emirates.

His league stats:
2023-24: 34 games, 33 goals, 11 assists
2022–23: 50 games, 22 goals, 12 assists
2021-22: 47 games, 18 goals, 5 assists
2020-21: 34 games, 5 goals, 1 assist

It is worth noting that he’s only been at Sporting CP for one season (2023–24), but what he is doing—in all competitions, he has 43 goals and 15 assists,is even more mind-blowing than what Goncalo Ramos did at Benfica before going to PSG or Darwin Núñez did at Benfica before going to Liverpool.

The young striker is a Swedish talent who can make the big boys in Europe spend at least £80 million to recruit him.

Reports over the past few months suggest that Arsenal have shown interest in him, which could make us regret not signing him and watching him excel elsewhere.

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. Look how well the player you mentioned have done when leaving Portugal. Ramos, Nunez, Felix even the legendary Falcao struggled in the premier league. Enzo Fernandes looked world class in Portugal and now he cant get a game over Connor Gallagher. 100m is just to big a gamble who has played Portuguese football and Championship football. No matter how many goals he has scored you got to remember apart from the big 3 Porto, Sporting and Benfica the rest of the league is diabolical bar maybe Braga.

    1. Thanks you said my mind, look at the players you called Ramos, Nunez, with Felix they all did wonders at Portugal but struggle outside of Portugal

  2. Darwin Nunez is strange recommendation?

    £85m flop who has failed to transition to the PL, even Carragher hinting Liverpool looking for an upgrade

    Darwin Nunez level contribution takes us backwards as a team, remember someone has to not play so Gyokeres does

    Liam cites a long list of those who have failed to transition Primeira Liga form, not forgetting our very own Vieira!

    that takes us to his 3 years at Coventry…pause and read that again…Coventry

    45 goals in 131 games does not exactly wreak of elite clinical PL striker! 1 goal every 3 games is the Championship.

    where I do agree is Arsenal could use some more goal scoring depth in the squad, ideally someone who can play anywhere across the front three, and comfortable being a squad member (vs star of the show)

    Sesko seemed like that guy, at way lower price, while I would like Sesko to have joined this summer, it does demonstrate a certain humbleness and loyalty to develop at RB Liepzig for another year – qualities Edu/Arteta are very keen on

    let’s see where this ends up, may be it will be Gyokeres, may be an unheard of, may be no recognised striker but a deadly winger

    right now, with the lack of activity so far, I have no idea which way Edu/Arteta will go

  3. please and please Arsenal should sign a striker that is good at scoring even if viktor can do job let sign him

  4. When you talk about the once that didn’t do well, talk about the once that did well too, Ronaldo came from Portugal, Ruben Diaz, Bruno Fernandes, Joa Palhinha, Neves, etc

  5. Sam P your wish might just be about to be granted. There are several media reports today, all quoting a Portuguese website, that Arsenal have agreed a deal with Sporting to buy Gyokeres. How reliable that source is remains to be seen.
    For me, I wouldn’t mind having the player at Arsenal if those who run the club think he is worth the money. His experience in the English Championship could stand him in good stead for the Premiership

  6. Decent player but it’s a bit too much for what their asking for. He’s not that proven enough to justify the price tag and clearly a ripped off for me. Liga Portugal clubs are very good at this.

    1. In the modern football, a “world class proven player” that will cost anything below 100 mil, is either not world class, or a proven player. Gone are the old days. Challenge now is to identify a future world class player who is a proven player, or a world class talent who can prove himself in the future. And both will cost a ton.
