Surely Arsenal can’t get Viktor Gyokeres for just £43 million?

Viktor Gyokeres appears destined for the Emirates Stadium. According to the Gazetta dello Sport, Arsenal is leading the transfer hunt for the Sporting Lisbon striker.

This summer, Arsenal fans expect a headline striker swoop. The attacking troubles in the first half of the season and Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah’s inefficiency called for that.

This top striker swoop might see Gyokeres leave Sporting to join Arsenal.

According to the Italian tabloid, Arsenal may buy the ex-Coventry striker for as little as £43 million. He has established himself as one of Europe’s best forwards.

Chelsea would have been Arsenal’s main transfer competitor in that move, but with Champions League football doubtful, they are unlikely to persuade the player to sign. Interesting transfer gossip about Arsenal’s Gyokeres potential summer transfer has emerged over the past week.

Gazetta dello Sport dubbing Arsenal favorites for Gyokeres is encouraging, but at £43 million, the figures ain’t right.

Why would Sporting Lisbon let a player who has 36 goals and 14 assists in 39 games depart for such a modest fee?

Reportedly, the striker has an £86 million release clause, which could realistically be what the Gunners must pay to complete the deal. Fortunately, there’s a report (by that states Arsenal is willing to pay top dollar for the Swede.

  1. Just no reason Arsenal shouldn’t sign this player if he is in the 80Ms or below. I don’t think he would honestly have the opportunity for better earnings at Arsenal and choose Milan because of Zlatan at this age.
    Bring him and Zubimendi to improve the squad. Give Nwaneri and contract and keep him as Saka’s backup or loan him out to a club that guarantees him minutes.
    Why did Sagoe go to a club that doesn’t guarantee him minutes? That’s totally wrong.
    Loan our players out to clubs where they can play regularly just as Biereth is doing.

    1. Unfortunately he probably won’t have grown to his current levels. He would have probably been a consistent bench warmer who would eventually be sold to some Brighton or Crystal Palace at a loss.

      1. Funny that, because ha was the property of Brighton before they sold him for £1m. I agree though, with the former, I wanted us to take a punt. He looked a class act!
