Arsenal currently sits in the 15th when it comes to goals scored per match in the league, with just 5 goals in 7 games. While they have been clinical at the back, the lack of quality is still visible upfront. We look at the five strikers that Arsenal would target in the winter window to bolster their attack.
#5 Ivan Toney
Brentford’s talisman, Ivan Toney, has had the perfect start to the season. After carrying a world-class season on his back the previous season, everyone had huge expectations from him coming into this one as Brentford got promoted to the Premier League.
While it will not be easy, The Gunners will surely look to target him in this transfer window.
#4 Anthony Martial
Stuck in the middle of a heavily packed Manchester United attack, Martial does not seem to find a way out. The French striker was once regarded as one of the best young talents, but has had a huge decline ever since. Injuries and lack of chances have severely affected his career.
Martial is a player that has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for quite some time now, if a reasonable offer comes knocking, United might be tempted to offload him.
#3 Ollie Watkins
Ollie Watkins had the season of his life last year as he enjoyed scoring a total of 14 goals in his debut season with Aston Villa. This season’s start hasn’t been even close to ideal for Watkins, this is due to the addition of Danny Ings and also the absence of Grealish, who departed to Manchester City this summer.
If the poor run of performances continues for Ollie, Aston Villa be looking to do business as soon as possible and get a decent amount of money out of him.
#2 Lautaro Martinez
Martinez is a player that was heavily linked with a move away from Inter this summer, but the move failed to take place as Romelu Lukaku completed his move to Chelsea. If not for Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez would be an Arsenal player right now. The Argentinian has had a stellar start to this season as he has scored 5 goals in just 6 games.
Lautaro will cost a huge amount of money, but a player like him can come and make an instant impact, exactly what Arsenal need at the moment.
#1 Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Another player who has been linked with Arsenal, for some time now, is Calvert-Lewin. It was a campaign to remember for him last season, as he found the back of the net 16 times in over 30 games. Although, an unfortunate thigh injury has sidelined him for a month or two this season.
The perfect replacement for Aubameyang for years to come is Calvert-Lewin. While it will take a lot of convincing and tons of money, a deal to the Emirates could be on the cards this winter as we look at the five strikers that Arsenal would target in the winter window to bolster their attack.
