Arsenal line up move for £50m striker with great abilities


Arsenal are considering plenty of strikers as they bid to boost their forward line in the second half of the season.

Arsenal are in dire need of a striker this month but rightfully, they won’t panic in their search throughout January.

Indeed, rather than panic buying and hurting their FFP projections,

It may well be best to wait until the summer when one of their no.1 targets might be more readily available.

The winter window has always been notoriously hard to conduct business in and recent news concerning the Gunners‘ striker hunt sums that up well.

Arsenal still hunting for a striker

Arsenal’s primary target in 2024 appears to be Brentford forward Ivan Toney. The striker has only just returned from a ban for betting offences but that hasn’t deterred Edu and Co. What has been a turn-off, however, is the player’s reported £100m valuation.

Similarly, another target in Victor Osimhen has a £120m release clause, meaning a move is incredibly unlikely this month. Even a cheaper move for Getafe striker Borja Mayoral has been turned away

With the Spanish outfit reportedly unwilling to sell this month.

As a result, a move for Joshua Zirkzee of Bologna has been considered,

But yet again it’s complicated by the time of the year.

The Telegraph first revealed the interest last week, citing a £50m asking price. Football Transfers then provided the latest over the weekend, suggesting Arsenal had ‘expressed’ an interest in signing the player. Standing at a colossal 6 foot 4, it would give the north Londoners another mightily physical player.

Kia Joorabchian is the player’s agent, a name notable due to his connections with Willian, David Luiz, Cedric and Pablo Mari.

A move could be easier to come by as a result of those ties,

Although the player’s club are reluctant to sell this January. Back to the drawing board, it seems.

The talented Dutch forward has one of the most unique profiles in the game at the moment and would go a long way to helping resolve the offensive crisis at Arsenal right now.
