As the summer transfer window approaches, Arsenal fans are anticipating potential activity in the market, particularly in the search for a new striker to bolster their squad.

Despite concerns about Financial Fair Play (FFP) hindering their January pursuits, the Gunners are expected to resume their quest for a top-class forward once the transfer window reopens.

Mikel Arteta has made it clear that he aims to continue improving the squad, and securing a new striker is seen as a priority to enhance Arsenal’s attacking options.

Several names have emerged as potential targets for Arsenal, according to various reports. Among them is Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, who is anticipated to depart Italy this summer, attracting interest from multiple clubs.

Brentford’s Ivan Toney has long been linked with a move to Arsenal, consistently impressing with his performances for the Championship side. Similarly, Viktor Gyokeres, currently excelling in Portugal, has caught the attention of Arsenal scouts.

Another player on Arsenal’s radar is Benjamin Sesko, who has drawn interest from the Gunners due to his promising talent.

While Newcastle’s CEO Darren Eales emphasised the club’s reluctance to sell Isak, he acknowledged that every player has their price in the modern football landscape.

“If we’re going to get to where we want to get to, at times it is necessary to trade your players. It is counter-intuitive and part of the inherent system of PSR that there is an incentive to trade your players, if you want to re-invest,” Eales said, before replying ‘correct’ when pressed on if that meant every player had their price.

Despite Newcastle’s stance, Arsenal’s potential return to the Champions League and Isak’s undeniable talent could prolong discussions surrounding a potential transfer.

While Newcastle remains firm on retaining Isak, Arsenal’s interest signals their intent to strengthen their attacking options as they aim to compete at the highest level domestically and in Europe.

As the summer transfer window approaches, the pursuit of a new striker will undoubtedly be a focal point for the Gunners.
