Premier League

Arteta is critically eyeing these proven goal poachers to cap off his Arsenal rebuilding process.

Arterta and Edu's next move will undoubtedly be to bring in a capable striker to lead their front line. Among the Strikers targets, one of the five players listed below could end up leading Arsenal's front line as soon as January: considering Arsenal's penchant for spending.


Everton's Dominic Calvert Lewin: Due to an injury, Lewin's 2021-22 season has not started well. With the exception of Harry Kane, Lewin is unquestionably England's go-to number 9 when fit. Arsenal's signing of him may require them to break the bank, but his impressive goal-scoring instincts may make the need worthwhile. Lewin scored 16 goals in the Premier League last season. Which is far superior to Lacazette's 13 Premier League goals last season.


Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins: Arsenal almost signed him from Brentford in January 2020, but they didn't, and instead Aston Villa signed him in the summer of 2020. He went on to score 14 goals in his first season in the Premier League. So far at Villa Park, he is competing for playing time with Danny Ings, and if Arsenal come in for him, a deal looks likely given Watkins' admission that his family has been Arsenal fans for a long time.

Florentina's Dusan Vlahovic: Vlahovic, who is one of Arteta's prime targets, can well be described as a goal magnet. He scored 21 goals in 37 Serie A appearances last season; this season, the 21-year-old has started with the same impressive form, scoring four goals in seven Serie A appearances.Vlahovic was heavily linked with a summer move to Arsenal, but no deal was struck. Given that Vlahovic is said to be open to leaving Florentina after refusing to sign a new contract that will improve his current deal, which is set to expire in 2023, Arsenal should be able to secure him on a cheap deal in 2022.

Sevilla's Youssef En Yesri: En Yesri is not a new name to Arsenal fans, as he was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal from Sevilla back in the summer as a replacement for Aubameyang, who was considered available for sale to any suitable suitors at the time. So far in La Liga, the Moroccan has three goals in six games for Sevilla. If he signs, his quick feet and impressive forward runs could be extremely beneficial to Arsenal.

Brentford's Ivan Toney: The 25-year-old could also be a good option for Arteta. Toney has not dazzled in the Premier League so far, with only two goals in seven games, but he has been praised for his pressing style, with many labeling him a 'defender bully.' Arsenal has lacked a bold strikir to lead their frontline, so if they sign him, he would add another dimension to Arsenal's game. Toney scored 31 goals in the EFL Championship last season.
