It is now unbearable to watch Arsenal fail to find the back of the net as frequently as they should, and when they do, it is not from the players tasked with scoring goals, but rather from midfielders who find themselves in advantageous positions. Both Aubameyang and Lacazette have struggled this season, and while Eddie Nketiah and Falorin Balogun were tipped for greatness, they have yet to break into Arsenal's first team.
Arsenal require a top goal-scoring striker as soon as the January transfer window opens, but based on the links revealed by The Evening Standard, it is unlikely that he will be signed in January. However, Calvert-Lewin will be closely monitored so that a move for him can be sanctioned in the summer.
Calvert-Lewin will almost certainly be a hit at the Emirates if he is signed. Calvert-Lewin's goal tally is impressive; in only 11 games for the Three Lions, he has already scored four goals, while for Everton this season, he scored three goals in three consecutive matches before suffering a quadriceps injury that has kept him out since. Injury has limited his brilliance this season, but when he was fit as a fiddle last season, he really stepped up for Everton, scoring 21 goals in 39 games across all competitions.
Is Calvert-Lewin the stumbling block in Arteta's attack? He could very well be.
