Mikel Arteta Determined To Sign World-Class Forward In The Summer
Arsenal are reportedly hoping to secure services of a new centre-forward when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.
The Gunners managed to tie Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to a long-term deal earlier last summer, however, the futures of their other three recognised strikers are all up in the air heading into the 2021-22 season.
No positive progress has been made over Folarin Balogun’s future at the club, while Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette are both rumoured with a departure from the Emirates Stadium- with the latter reportedly a target for Atletico Madrid and Monaco.
As a result, The Mirror claims that the Gunners, boss, Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu could work to bring more than one player to the Emirates to spearhead the their attack for the 2021/22 season.
Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard is being strongly linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium as an exit from the Scottish side looks increasingly likely, while the report also claims that the Gunners could look to swoop for Andre Silva, who is stunning from since joining Frankfurt from AC Milan.
A recent report suggested that Lacazette has also been offered to UCL giants Juventus and Barcelona as his time at the Emirates appears to be nearing an end.
