Striker holding out for Arsenal despite preliminary talks with Newcastle

Newcastle are claimed to have help preliminary talks over a move to sign Dominic Calvert Lewin from Everton, but he is holding out for Arsenal instead.

The Gunners are also hot on the hunt for a striker this summer, with the club having failed to sign a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January and with both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah into the final months of their current deals.

The Magpies appear to have tried to steal a march on us by holding talks over a deal to sign the England international, but the Football Insider reiterates that the player’s preference is to come to the Emirates Stadium instead.

While Premier League experience shouldn’t be underestimated, I can’t help but believe our best options come from abroad. I wouldn’t mind if DCL had been firing this season, but it has been anything but plain-sailing for the Blues star, with his last PL goal coming back in August.

While it is difficult to judge his form considering his entire team has been struggling with form throughout the campaign, but I just haven’t seen enough from him, someone who you would have hoped would step-up and help his side to avoid relegation, which doesn’t fill me with confidence imagining him having to deal with the pressure of the big games which we will hopefully be involved in during the coming years.

Do you think DCL should be high on our list of strike-targets this summer?

  1. So commit the best part of £100m on fee and wages to someone who has been plagued by injuries and has not scored since August?

    Hmmm, let me think on that one.

  2. It would be a disaster signing him.
    I would rather not bother signing a striker than sign him because you know its money wasted…

  3. You will search far, wide and almost totally in vain to find a single Gooner who wants this non scoring,injury prone, fashion lover DCL at our club.

    It will not happen, as is PLAIN TO ALL WHO THINK AT ALL.

    HAD we wanted one of this type, we could have kept the long time, ridiculously overhyped, but finally seen through as useless, BELLERIN!

    He was non scoring, injury prone and a fashion lover too. And useless!

    1. That’s actually a good question FK!he might have been sounded out by the club,MA might have had a quick word with him after we played them…who knows?

  4. His style of play is the ideal type of player we need, but he’s now a shadow of his self and cannot be taken seriously.

  5. I can’t say I’m sold on him. On one hand he is seems like a good player whose profile fits in to what we’re looking for but on the other hand he only had one good season, is injury prone and might be an inferior version of Giroud. With a 50+ million price tag, he doesn’t seem to be worth the money in the long run. I would rather get Nunez with that money.
