Reports and stats tell us Arsenal’s main target should be Viktor Gyokeres

A report from Portugal is saying that Arsenal’s main striker target this summer could be Viktor Gyokeres.

Though the attention right now is on Arsenal winning the league, there is a behind-the-scenes transfer debate over which striker the Gunners will sign and push the club to the next level.

Top strikers that clubs dream of have been linked with a move to the Emirates, but the question is who is most suited to this Arteta project?

According to A Bola, Arsenal and PSG have underlined Gyokere’s name in their books and are watching him with the ‘greatest interest’.

Fans who have watched the Portuguese Primeira Liga or taken notice of this season’s stats will undoubtedly tell you that Gyokeres is the real deal. In 25 league appearances, the ex-Coventry man has 17 goals and 8 assists. If you thought his league stats were impressive, consider this: he has 5 goals and an assist in 7 European league games.

It’s understandable that the Gunners are considering a move for his services. Though Sporting may only let him depart for the £86 million release clause in his deal, Arsenal may struggle to seal such a deal, but it can be done. If they do, there is a chance they will not be disappointed.

Considering how unreliable the Arsenal forwards Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah have been, Arteta’s project needs an upgrade; Viktor Gyokeres could be the perfect solution as he has vastly improved dince his Coventry days and has already played in England.

  1. In my capacity as seasoned armchair scout, he seemed a bit sluggish to me. Undoubtedly great finisher, strong etc., but these kinds of target men tend to get lost in the prem. Sesko always struck me as more dynamic player capable of making a difference centrally and out wide. I think we need a taller, more clinical Jesus. Otherwise, we may as well stick with Jesus.

  2. Gyokeres is the real deal. He scores many goals and aso provides many assists. I don’t see how we can go wrong with him.
    The fact that he provides all these assists is an indication of his particpatory ability in buid-up systems like our own. Arsenal shoud go for him over Watkins who wil cost more whereas he is oder. The market is well-furnished with strikers this summer.

  3. Viktor has always been my top choice for that No. 9 at Arsenal. Because of him I have taken it upon myself to watch virtually every Sorting Club game that I can. And I have always come away with the same conclusion: among all the names being bandied around, I think he ticks the most boxes.
    With a definite release clause, I think Arsenal can afford him.

  4. Viktor is good he can fit very well with the way Arsenal play. And he can play a front as a point Man, his hold up play is good, he can dribble well. Another player they need to look at is Ferguson of seagulls but he will be expensive.
