For years Arsenal fans have been crying out for a top striker to arrive at the club, and this summer looks certain to be our best chance of doing just that.
This coming close-season is set to see a number of Europe’s biggest talents moving clubs.
Sergio Aguero appears to have lost his first-team role to Gabriel Jesus, and is claimed to be open to a switch. I’m certain that he will attract interest from Real Madrid, which could lead to one or both of Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata to leave in search of guaranteed first-team football.
Chelsea’s Diego Costa may well find himself on the move also, having been rumoured to be in want of a new bumper contract in order to stay with the Blues. A return to Atletico Madrid may well open the door for Antoine Griezmann to make his move, and he would be a huge signing could we land him.
Borussia Dortmund have already named their price for Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang, which could see him on the move, while Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski is regularly linked with the exit door.
Paulo Dybala has found himself to be Juventus´third choice behind Mario Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain, and could grow frustrated with his lack of opportunities, while Romelu Lukaku, the current top goalscorer in the Premier League, is known to be eager to make the step-up to a Champions League side.
Olivier Giroud will be turning 31 in September, and our club has regularly favoured younger players, and this summer could be the ideal time to either replace him, or bring in an understudy who could displace him in the near future.
Should Wenger finally step-down from his role at the end of the season, Giroud may well find his time at the club will end also.
Which striker would best fit our club? Could we land any of the above?
