Scouting for Arsenal – Which striker has impressed you at the World Cup so far?

Which player have impressed you the most thus far in this World Cup?
Thrills, upsets, shocks and phenomenal actions are few words that describes the ongoing Qatar 2022 FIFA world cup.
I mean we’ve seen unimaginable results thus far. Messi-inspired Argentina being whooped by Saudi Arabia, to The Samurai blues of Japan defeating Germany and Spain, need I say the Defeat of The reigning world champions to Tunisa, or Cameroon stunning Brazil.
Indeed a handful of players are utilizing this mega mundial in announcing and ensuring they will be on the move come January transfer window via their scintillating performances, Cody Gakpo, Mohammed Kudus, Richarlison, Ember Valencia just to mention a few.
With a glaring need for our club to fortify our squad and most especially the striking option.
And so assume you are to play the role of a scout, scouting for our dearly beloved club for talents in this mundial…
I ask which players have impressed you the most thus far in this tournament, I mean players you would be recommending for Edu to boaster our squad come January.
So time to play the role of a scout.
For me, Valencia And Kudus have indeed shone like diamonds for Ecuador and Ghana, although am ecsastic of the latter, who seems to be one of Ajax’s most prized assets now just at 22 with the world on his feet.

  1. Kudus- very impressive, can play RW/LW/CAM, I’m interested to know if he can be a false 9 too.

    Gakpo- From a goal output stand point 3/4 so far, still needs to polish his all round game.

    Mitoma- performing well at Brighton in the PL and doing well for Japan.

    Macallister- ditto, what better way to really announce yourself to the world than lighting it up with Argentina. Think a lot of big clubs will start sniffing around him

    Freuler- thought he was solid next to Xhaka for Switzerland but he is 30 and we should be looking to bring the average age of our midfield down.

    Gvardiol- look solid at the back and went on some marauding runs forward but unfortunately he will be out of our price range.

    Amrabat- one of the standout performers for Morocco.

    Off Topic: We lost a behind closed doors friendly against Watford 4-2, Marquinhos and Eddie on the score sheet for us.

  2. If we’re talking about CF, I was impressed by the way Richarlison, Kane, David, Embolo and Vlahovic did hold-up play

  3. Sometimes players at world cup is not such an accurate guide.

    Of all the wingers have herd link to Arsenal, only Raphinha in my opinion makes sense, he’s the only genuine player that plays on the right.

    Ayman Yahya Salem – Right Winger – Saudi
    Mohammed Kodus – Attacking Midfielder
    Yunus Musah – Midfielder – USA
    Jude Bellingham – Midfielder – England

    Milosevic is certainly a player we could sign on a six month deal, he certainly doesn’t need much touches to hit the back of the net.

    1. Yunusa Musa, what a player….., Well I haven’t seen any Arabian player making waves in europe for a long time, in regards to ayman salem

  4. I said sometime back that Gakpo has potential as a striker. As a winger I don’t see him to be that good unless in transitions. From next season we’ll be playing against more low blocks so we need to be smart with our forward signings.

    Aye Admin, there’s bad news going to hit Brazil soon. Let’s hope it don’t destabilise them in the World Cup.

  5. The German youngster Musiala. He is supposed to be a midfielder but I thought he was brilliant in and around the box.

  6. Agree with Gunsmoke again, here. Non of the strikers have been overwhelming so far although Musically looks promising. The remaining are a dime a dozen with non of them capable of being prolific alongside the likes of Harland, or Mbappe, let alone Aguero etc. Perhaps it will be Rashford but how can anyone get so carried away when it was only Wales?

  7. Musiala I liked him, he causes havoc in the opposition box. But we need a goal poacher upfront. Strangely none of the big names has been living up to expectations. Our concern now would be the striker position.

    Off topic. I think it’s quite strange that Thomas Partey has been able to stay fit for so long. Will he come back injured? I think if he continues with his injuries after the world cup, something is definitely wrong.

  8. Let us still wait to see if a reliable young top quality striker and holding midfielder within 22-24 years old. And with consistency in goals scoring and back-four nr back-three cefense-line incredible protection. Who will fit-in in Arteta’s plans at Arsenal will still emerged as the ongoing Qarta World Cup pans on. So that Arsenal will consider if to sign them or not during the soon opened January transfer window. And use the pair if signed to do an upgrade to their striker’s and Dmf’s departments. And if possible do those two signings early as the next January transfer when window openes.
    If I am to be honest to myself, I cannot for now name any top quality strikers who I think and want Arsenal to sign next Jan window. And use him to boolsrer their striker’s options when the League resumes. For, there are so many strikers on the market who were linked to Arsenal for signing last summer window.
    But in the Dmf position,, is Arsenal attempts to sign Douglas Luiz last summer still on for a revisit next Jan window? Or they’ve moved on to preferred signing Danilo? Well, us will see to know more when the window opens. And the January transfer rumour mill is in full swing rolling out transfer rumours.

  9. I have not watched the games thus far as I’m eagerly waiting for AFC players to get knocked out and come home fit. I’ll watch some of the later games… should be some interesting matches by then, well matched. I generally don’t like international fixtures, so rarely do I watch any
