Arsenal are already making plans for the summer transfer window, with the club having a clear vision of what is needed. Their main priority is to bring in a top-level forward. The Gunners have recently been linked with a host of strikers as Mikel Arteta looks to challenge again next season, but which one should they sign this summer?

Viktor Gyökeres (£68m – 36 goals) – The striker arrived in Portugal from Coventry City last summer and has exploded onto the scene at Sporting Lisbon. Gyökeres has the most goal contributions of any player in Europe’s top five leagues with an incredible 36 goals and 14 assists across all competitions. He has propelled himself amongst the most high-regarded players right now as his dazzling form raises his profile as a prime target.

Alexander Isak (£80m – 19 goals) – Arsenal and Mikel Arteta have been admirers of Isak since he moved to Spain in 2019. Despite Newcastle’s poor season, the striker has enjoyed a relatively successful campaign, scoring 15 goals in 22 league appearances so far this term. This will be a difficult deal to pull off this summer, following his £63m move from Real Sociedad two years ago but the Gunners interest very much remains.

Victor Osimhen (£113m – 13 goals) – Osimhen made a name for himself as one of the deadliest forwards in Europe last season when he bagged 31 goals to help Napoli win the Serie A title. The striker has netted 11 goals in 18 league matches this term. His stock remains very high and clubs around Europe are lining up to make him their new talisman. He did sign a new contract in December which includes a massive £113m release clause.

Benjamin Sesko (£45m – 11 goals) – The young forward is on the radar of numerous top clubs around Europe, with Arsenal said to be monitoring his situation closely. Sesko has been doing a great job at RB Leipzig as he has continued his impressive goal-scoring form from his days in Austria with 11 goals to his name this season. The striker reportedly has a £45m release clause, which could make him an appealing prospect for Mikel Arteta.

Donyell Malen (£40m – 13 goals) – A dynamic versatile forward who can play on the wings or centrally and has deadly pace. Malen mainly played as a centre-forward at PSV but is now excelling on the right-wing at Borussia Dortmund. He has 11 goals and three assists in the Bundesliga this season and has recently revealed that he would be willing to return to Arsenal, where he previously played as an academy player from 2015 to 2017.

Ivan Toney (£70m – 4 goals) – Another prolific striker who has been a long-term target for Arsenal. Toney has scored four goals in 11 games since returning from his betting ban and notched 21 in all competitions last season. He has plenty of Premier League experience and will have just one year remaining on his contract come the summer. Brentford are set to cash in on their prized asset but the Gunners will face stiff competition for his services.

GOING FOR GOALS:  Despite recent strides in front of goal, Arsenal are determined to bolster their attacking lineup for the new upcoming 2024/25 season. Given the injury concerns and variations in form from Gabriel Jesus, and with Eddie Nketiah primarily in a supporting role, the club is seeking a more robust solution. While Leandro Trossard and Kai Havertz have filled in capably, neither are seen as the permanent answer.
