Mikel Arteta Arsenal

According to Nacional via Football 365, Arsenal are targeting five top forwards for a summer swoop, with reported interest in Barcelona’s Ferran Torres and Raphinha untrue.

Mikel Arteta is expected to prioritize moves to bolster his attack this summer. This has resulted in numerous reports regarding who the Gunners could sign.

It was recently claimed that Arsenal wanted to sign both Raphinha and Torres. Barcelona, eager to lower their wage bill, are reportedly ready to cash in on the pair. The two forwards are well-known to Arsenal; Raphinha was almost signed in 2022, and Torres worked with Arteta at Manchester City.

If you were excited about the Barcelona double raid, I’m sad to disappoint you; it will not happen, according to Nacional.

The Arsenal striker targets

Arsenal, according to the Spanish outlet, will not sign the two Barcelona forwards. Instead, they list five top attackers the Gunners are targeting for the summer:

  • Ivan Toney: The Englishman is regarded as the top striker target; he might be available for as little as £50 million.
  • Victor Osimhen: He would have been a must-have, but his price tag may be too high.
  • Viktor Gyokeres: There are reports that Arteta is willing to sanction his £85 million move.
  • Benjamin Sesko: His £43 million release clause is enticing the Gunners.
  • Mathys Tel: The Bayern Munich attacking prodigy, has the Gunners’ interest.

Notably, all of the targets identified are strikers, one of whom has the potential to take Arsenal’s attack to the next level.

Arsenal have not struggled to score goals since the winter break. But who can forget how wasteful they were at times during the first part of the season? If they had been clinical, the league title would have been theirs to lose.

With an efficient offense and the addition of a clinical striker, this Arsenal team has the potential to compete on all fronts next season. Let’s wait and see who Arteta gets this summer…
