Arsenal transfer news: Gunners could could be about to sign new striker with double update | Football | Sport


Arsenal could be in the market for a striker this summer following transfer updates on two of their players. Arsenal’s transfer business so far has mainly focused on recruiting in goal, defence and midfield. Left-back Nuno Tavares is set to seal a £6.9million move to the Emirates after flying to England over the weekend.

Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga is also claimed to be close to joining the Gunners.

Brighton defender Ben White is a top target, with Arsenal in advanced talks to sign the England international.

A couple of goalkeepers linked with the north Londoners are Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale and Barcelona’s Neto.

However, Mikel Arteta may soon have to bring in a new striker after updates on the future of Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette.

The departures of Nketiah and Lacazette would leave Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and academy graduate Folarin Balogun as the only two options for Arteta up front.

Aubameyang is often used out wide by Arteta and it remains to be seen how much of a chance Balogun will be given having yet to make his Premier League debut.

Arsenal were linked with a move for Portugal international Andre Silva, but he has since joined RB Leipzig.

Alexander Isak is also admired by those at the Emirates but he signed a new deal at Real Sociedad last week.
