Arteta could sign Arsenal a Toney Alternative for £100m


The young striker is already one of the most sought-after players in the league. After 15 games, Arsenal, like for much of last season.

Once again find themselves sitting pretty atop the Premier League table.

Mikel Arteta’s men haven’t been as free-flowing in attack or as silky in their passing, and some may even argue that they have looked stilted at times.

Still, the men from north London have found a new solidity this year, which has propelled them to their most envied of positions.

Even after the fantastically entertaining game against Luton Town earlier this week,

They can boast the joint-best defence in the league alongside Liverpool.

However, as great as their backline is, they will need to start putting away more of their chances if they are to dethrone Manchester City this year, and to do that, they will probably need to sign a new number nine.

Brentford’s Ivan Toney has been frequently linked to the club in recent months, but it looks like Edu and Co have a different player in mine, Evan Ferguson.

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, the Gunners are on the lookout for a new striker in 2024, and while Toney is on the list of potential targets, 

There is a genuine ‘admiration’ from the club for Brighton & Hove Albion’s teenage sensation, Ferguson.

Ornstein mentions that several other clubs are interested in the Irishman’s signature,

Which is hardly surprising considering he has scored six goals in just nine Premier League starts this season.

Something else that should not come as a big surprise given the hype around the “incredible” striker,

As described by his manager Roberto De Zerbi, is the sort of fee Brighton will want for his signature.

According to Football Transfers, the South Coast side values the dynamic forward at a whopping £100m,

So any move will require some serious conviction from the Gunners. However, with how the Bettystown-born forward has performed since making his debut, that valuation might prove fair.
