ARSENAL: Two Strikers That can Bolster Mikel's Frontline

One of the toothless areas that most rivals take advantage of to beat Mikel Arteta is Arsenal's frontline. Since the club's former captain Aubameyang lost his scoring boots especially this season, the North London club has been struggling to register goals from their main strikers with most goals normally coming from the flanks where Martinelli, Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka are the position holders. However, this article highlights two prolific attackers that can immediately bolster Mikel's frontline should the club sign them.

Luka Jovic

The fact that Dusan Vlahovic's deal is likely off the table, Arsenal is arguably looking for an alternative striker with similar potential as Vlahovic. Arguably, Jovic of Real Madrid portrays a lot in common that includes high shooting rates, perfect midfield-attack linkage as well as aerial ball winner. If Arsenal can find that kind of a striker who doesn't fear taking shots outside the opponent's box, they can doubtlessly register as many goals as possible.

Alexander Isak

The 22-years old Isak is another perfect player that suits properly in Arteta's playing style. Judging by what lacks in Arsenal's frontline, Isak can solve the club's long-term solution of inconsistent implementation of playing from the back. Many occasions Arsenal defenders have not managed to withstand pressure from rivals with highly built squad hence forcing Aaron Ramsdale to shoot balls direct to attackers. In the end, their attackers lose possession so easily. Isak is best composed on the ball against defenders and Signing him can solve this problem.
