Arsenal have begun preparations for life after their current strikers and are tracking a few strikers ahead of the forthcoming transfer windows.
The Gunners are set to lose Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in the summer when their contracts expire and the duo have shown no signs of extending their stay in north London.
A few days ago a report from The Athletic stated that Eddie Nketiah had rejected a contract offer. Nketiah was surprisingly introduced in the final ten minutes of Arsenal’s 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.
Frustrations continue to grow over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s performances and after his display on Thursday, it is challenging to make a case for him to start games.
Arsenal have begun the search for a new No. 9 and have placed Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Lille’s Jonathan David on their shortlist according to various reports.
A fee of at least £60m will have to be forked out to land Calvert-Lewin. The 24-year-old netted 16 times in the league last season and before his injury this season he scored 3 times in the Premier League.
Jonathan David is another striker in fine form and leads the scoring chart in France with 10 goals from 16 appearances for Lille.
Arsenal’s pursuit of a striker was unsuccessful in the summer however, another attempt is expected in the summer if January is unsuccessful.
