Which Arsenal target would we realistically try to sign?

Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign three top strikers in the past 24 hours, but which one do we actually believe we would be willing to pay for?

Alexandre Lacazette was claimed to be keen on leaving Lyon in the near future to make the step-up in his career, and having scored consistently over the past four seasons, I believe he could be a great addition to our team. Lyon president Aulas has already claimed to have turned down offers between £35-60 Million, but should the striker ask to leave this summer, somewhere in the region of those amounts would likely be needed.

Alvaro Morata is another who has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates, and he is now claimed to be ‘considering’ a switch to our beloved club. His goalscoring prowess is not such a straight-line however, with him yet to break the 10 league goal barrier for either Real Madrid or Juventus. He has rarely completed the full 90 minutes in both spells in Italy and Spain however, and is yet to have a proper run of starts either. The Spanish giants are claimed to be demanding £51 Million however, which could prove a stumbling block.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is another continually linked with our club, and Borussia Dortmund have finally declared their asking price for their star-striker. The BVB are claimed to be in want of 80 Million (£68.5 Million) , and given his star-quality and sheer numbers of goals, I would love for Arsenal to make the bold bid.

We know our side have consistently favoured finding those value signings, but Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil’s arrivals have proved that they are willing to pay the right fee for the right player.

Could any of the trio prove to be the right player, who is commanding the right fee in the club’s eyes?

  1. Not in current window

    In summer Wenger will say we have plenty of forwards which is correct


    But only one is world class. We desperately need one more to compete with the best.
    Aubemeyang, Rodriguez, Lewandowski, Greizmann, Reus, etc. But won’t happen with Wenger in charge

    1. While we may not get anyone in this transfer window, I don’t think we should dismiss every top player because “It wont happen with Wenger in charge” BS!


      That is since the stadium isn’t such a burden.
      Before then Wenger got players like Pires and Henry with the aid of Dein.

      There was a period of time after Dein and pre Gazidis that Wenger had the control and in that time Wenger paid an inflated price to get Nasri, who had just signed a new contract to increase the price his old team would get for him.
      A reported £12 million where Arshavin became the clubs most expensive player a few months later at a reported £15 million.

      Wenger doesn’t like to spend?

      I can’t believe that it is Wenger that doesn’t like to spend.
      Wenger spent when David Dein was doing the transfers.
      Wenger spent when he done the transfers.
      Gazidis gets appointed and from the winter transfer window onwards we didn’t spend until stadium wasn’t such a burden.
      Now Wenger is spending again, not quite like how it was when he 1st arrived, more last minute deals than when we had Dein but Xhakas deal shows an improvement and maybe Gazidis is getting better.

      I do also agree that atm we need 1 more truly WC player upfront and out of all the names you listed, I guess Reus would be the cheapest and I would love to see him start on the left for us.

  2. We only have two real strikers in Sanchez and Giroud. Sanchez has only this season been converted and judging by the return of Giroud not so much to Wenger’s liking. Given that Giroud is not world class or very versatile, we do need a wc striker.

    It won’t happen under Wenger’s watch.
