What Edu Said That Hints This Striker Is On His Way To Arsenal

Ianis Stoic, an 18-year-old Romanian striker, is currently linked with Arsenal. The young striker for FCSB in the Romanian league has four goals and one assist to his name, an impressive run considering he mostly plays as a substitute and is still being integrated into the first team. When it comes to Stoic, he currently fits the mold of the type of player Arsenal has been acquiring.

When asked about their transfer strategy, Edu told Sky Sports:

"[In the summer] we signed six players who are under 23... We renewed seven players in this period as well, just in the first team. Five of the seven are under 23 as well. Why did we do that? Because we have a reason to try again to create a good foundation." 

Edu's comments exemplified the type of player Arsenal is looking to sign. Looking at Stoic, his age, talent, and qualities make him a player Arteta could go all in on and sign because he could be the perfect Alexander Lacazette replacement Arsenal has been looking for, but the question is whether Arsenal needs a quick-fix type of player or can they work with moulding Stoic to be the best he can be.
