Pundit advises Arteta who Arsenal should sign to replace Eddie Nketiah

We Gooners went into this transfer window confident that we would recruit a top striker. Regrettably, as the days progressed into weeks, our links with various strikers grew distant. It appears that we will not be recruiting a talented striker. Currently, it is believed that a move to strengthen the midfield and recruit a versatile winger is more important.

However, this does not imply Arsenal does not need to sign a striker. Kai Havertz is believed to be capable of piloting Mikel Arteta’s attacking ship, but with the North Londoners fighting on numerous fronts, it would be beneficial to have a much better replacement for Eddie Nketiah that they could rely on to lead the assault when Havertz needs a break.

Other than Havertz, our striking options proved to be unreliable in scoring goals last season. Isn’t it a risk to trust the German international’s alternatives to make an impact next season when given the opportunity?

Arsenal could use a fantastic goalscorer, and Neil Maupay, speaking to talkSPORT, may have just informed them who they can sign and who will definitely score goals – Ivan Toney.

Speaking to talkSPORT (02/07/2024, 08:40), he said: “Ivan is a top striker. He scores goals. That’s what he does. Give him some minutes and I am sure he will do well, and that’s what he did, to be fair. He gave an assist and he was dangerous. He had a chance, headed the ball well. Maybe put him on a bit earlier and he will do something.”

Maupay was speaking after Toney made a terrific cameo for England, coming on and assisting Harry Kane to score the goal that propelled England to the quarterfinals with a 2-1 comeback win over Slovakia.

Toney was one of the players Arsenal was keen on signing last winter. Although his transfer interest appears to have waned, given his contract’s expiration next summer and no public interest from other clubs, don’t you think Arsenal should consider signing him?

There are reports that we have issues with his character, but can we give him the benefit of the doubt that he joins and acts as a professional and bangs goals left, right, and centre after replacing Nketiah as Havertz’s deputy?

  1. Maybe a straight swap for £50 million Nketiah. Nketiah has potential at 25 hrs old and a sell on value, and Toney is knocking 28, with a lot of baggage in his final retirement contract. So it probably evens out. Age with goals Vs youth with potential.

    1. Toney comments at the England news conference confirms the rumours Arteta/Edu don’t think Toney fits with the Arsenal dressing room

      if there was any doubt it is gone now – absolutely zero chance Toney coming to Arsenal at any price

  2. I don’t know about all this “Unsuitable character” business but what I see on the pitch from Ivan Toney would undoubtedly be a massive upgrade on Nketiah and provide an excellent alternative goal threat to Havertz / Jesus. I’d love to see him at Arsenal, albeit that sounds unlikely now.
