Viktor Gyokeres Sporting Lisbon

According to MilanLive.it, Arsenal fans can look forward to Viktor Gyokeres’ big-money move from Sporting Lisbon to the Emirates Stadium.

Every day, new transfer rumors emerge about how Arsenal plans to strengthen their offense this summer. As good as our Gunners have been this season, they aim to improve for next season, and to do so, they will need to add top-quality players.

Fans and pundits alike agree that Mikel Arteta’s team requires a ‘lethal striker’. Given how dynamic and attack-minded this Arsenal team has shown it can be, they may ‘explode’ with a clinical striker. Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah, the club’s main natural striker options, have clearly struggled. Nketiah is expected to leave, and a suitable replacement will take his position.

A number of strikers have been linked to the club, but Viktor Gyokeres is emerging as the prime target.

Gyokeres for £85 million

MilanLive.it, in a report attempting to determine which striker could take AC Milan’s attack to the next level, has revealed something interesting to Arsenal fans regarding Gyokeres. They believe that the Rossoneri would have liked to sign Gyokeres, who has 33 goals and 12 assists in 38 matches, but they cannot afford his transfer.

Apparently they’re willing to do anything, including asking Zlatan Ibrahimovic (the striker’s country mate) to persuade the player to join them, but they are unable to meet the player’s asking price. Unlike them, Arsenal, according to the report, are willing to spend up to 100 million euros (£85 million) to get the Swede to London.

This revelation plainly shows that, among the several strikers linked with them, the Gunners are convinced of Gyokeres. However, if Arsenal spend £85 million on that swoop, will there be enough for other projected transfers, as David Ornstein claims the Gunners want to sign five players this summer?

We’ll have to wait and see, but there’s every reason to believe Arsenal could make a serious move to sign Gyokeres and he’d be an exciting addition to the squad.

    He was poor at Swansea Brighton and Coventry. He is now scoring in a league against poor opposition for example the next team he plays against is Bostivia!.
    Don’t be over impressed by his stats that is really against very poor opposition, who’s previous stats in England have been poor. Rated at €55 million euro by transfer market. Maybe worth a gamble in the hope that he can improve at possibly £40 million, but not worth the gamble paying £85 million as you have suggested.

      He was not poor at Coventry. Scored lots of goals and assists which was why a number of premier league clubs were looking at him before he signed for Sporting.
