Who would Arsenal fans choose between Gyokeres, Ferguson and Zirkzee?

Arsenal will not be signing Benjamin Sesko because the Slovenian preferred to continue his development at RB Leipzig rather than move to the Emirates Stadium. So with a move for Sesko out of the picture, Arsenal still has to find a top striker.

Kai Havertz has proven his worth as Arsenal’s key man in attack, but he is no robot, and with Arsenal looking to battle on numerous fronts, they want another consistent source of goals (which a new striker hopefully provides). Given the disappointments from the Sesko swoop, the big question is who Arsenal will focus on to fill their striker needs.

If Give Me Sport‘s claim is to be believed, Dutch striker Joshua Zirkzee, Swedish goal machine Viktor Gyokeres, and Brighton’s young prospect Evan Ferguson are the three forwards Arsenal have their eyes on.

Of the three, Gyokeres clearly stands out in terms of quality; he’s a goal machine. The Sporting CP star has been described as a game changer after he scored 43 goals and provided 15 assists in 50 games. Apparently the Portuguese club are making him available for £68.5 million, as reported by the Mirror.

Joshua Zirkzee of Bologna is still developing as a striker. He possesses the fundamental characteristics of a talented striker; it is just that he has yet to consistently score goals. Last season, he had 12 goals and 7 assists in 37 games. With 34 million, he may be the most cheap of the three.

Brighton’s Evan Ferguson is more of a promising prospect. Many have compared him to Harry Kane, and they hope he can one day be as influential as the Englishman. As tough as Brighton are in negotiations, it will be intriguing to see if Arsenal overlooks swoops for Zirkzee and Gyokeres for his services. In the end, it will be intriguing to see which striker Arsenal will sign, but the aim is that whoever enters ultimately takes the Arsenal attack force to the next level.

Which one would you choose?

  1. Zirkzee would be my first choice, because he’s the biggest one and his hold-up play looked great on his YouTube highlights

    Gyokeres and Odegaard could speak to each other with Scandinavian language in the games, which would likely confuse their markers

    As for Ferguson, Saliba easily handled him, so I’d prefer to gamble on the other two options

    1. Sorry Zirkzee plays for the crowd and doesn’t score many goals. he’s not an upgrade on Jesus.

      Gyokeres is the man

    2. @Gai I doubt if you have watched Victor Gyokeres play in Portuguese league or for Sweden apart from YouTube.
      Talking of top No9 I bet this guy stands out. Pacey, technical and a real handful for defenders. Above all, he can score goals. JZirkzee is a taller version of Jesus. So we need someone different. I would even prefer him above Haaland in overall play.
      VGyokeres all day.

      1. No offense mate, but pacey? He is at best in the “not as slow as giroud” category. That being said, I d rather we didn’t get any of these 3 as I believe that none of them will be an upgrade on what we have. If I had to pick one, it would be gyokeres as well, but I d much rather we tried to get a striker in the mould of Watkins, isak, osimhen etc. We got a pretty strong squad and we need quality now, not numbers.

  2. Havertz has priven nothing and went missing for large parts of crucial games.

    We are looking at Osinhen, Doue, Eze, Fofana and Lundy.

    This is who we are actually after.

    Zimchdncko amd KT are done, so is Tavares, patino and Eddie

    1. Grass is always greener on the other side, how many goals did Osimhen score last season and how many did Havertxz score?

  3. Sorry, but it would be NONE of the above.

    I would prefer we spent all of our available money on say a Lauturo Martinez from Inter

  4. none fit the profile Arsenal are looking for

    if I had to choose 1 it would be Zirkzee, but mainly because if you look at his heat map, ball winning and dribbling he could be good on the left wing, which not a very good reason to spend £34m on a ‘striker’

  5. If we have wingers like kaoru mitoma on the left wing and johan bakayoko competing with bukayo saka on the right wing then i dont think we will need a striker jesus and harvertz will do the job

  6. Oli Watkins if we can get him for less than 65 million. If money is unlimited, Isak. If we can get Gyokeres for 65 or less that would be worth the gamble but a bigger gamble than Watkins.

  7. None of the strikers mentioned are worth the punt. Gyokeres is a massive risk, apart from the big three the portugese league is pony. Look at the goals Darwin Nunez and Felix scored in a season there and how it is translated to the bigger leagues.

    Best bet is a goal scoring winger or assist machine like Williams. I have no doubt that Havertz can hit 20 25 goals over the course of a season playing at cf. His numbers at cf are insane. He got like 14 g/a in the last 15 games of the season. Them numbers are only replicated by Halaand and Havertz offers more in the build up.

  8. A player with 58goals contribution in 50 matches is a well goal poacher were looking for this guy is a game changer victor gyokeres we need. Loan nketian and ESR sell Gabrieljesus n all the Fringe players Inject
    Biereth n cozier into the first team. Loan them in January. If you allow any club to snap up chido obi Martin from us youa’ll cursed

  9. Gyokeres is the only goal scorer of the lot. Zirkzee is not a striker, more of a 10 like Havertz.

    Doesn’t matter because any striker will be a backup, Arteta will not drop Havertz.

    I would take a punt on Roque from Barca. He is young, can play as striker or winger, and has a high ceiling to be even better.

  10. By selling Nketia, Smith Rowe, Partey etc we can pay the release clause of Gyokeres and not have any issues with FFP.
    Please sign Gyokeres plus 2 vibrant midfielders with Partey’s profile so that Rice can permanently play 8 t help us win many many games.

  11. Isak and 2 high quality midfielders..one Dm and an understudy for Odegaard…if Odegaard gets injured we font have sufficient cover for him..ut eould be catastrophic for us
