Arsenal’s striker shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window revealed

3 min read

Arsenal’s striker shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window revealed after failing to secure any signings in January.

Mikel Arteta has opted to wait until the summer transfer to replace Pierre-Erick Aubameyang who went on a permanent move to Barcelona.

Arsenal are in desperate need of a striker this summer. The Gunners tried to sign Dusan Vlahovic during the winter transfer window, but the Serbian international ended up signing with Juventus, forcing them to reevaluate their alternatives.

After joining Barcelona on a free transfer, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s tenure at the club is ended, and Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah’s contracts are set to expire at the end of the season.

Arsenal’s striker shortlist

Patrik Schick (Bayer Leverkusen)

Patrik Schick is a player who, despite his outstanding performances in the Bundesliga this season, seems to be flying under the radar.

The Czech Republic international, who is now bound to Bayer Leverkusen, has 17 non-penalty goals in the German top flight from the same amount of games, second only to Robert Lewandowski.

Schick, at 26, appears to be set for a huge move, with rumors stating that he is worth £50 million, however he did give his opinion on leaving the club in January.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)

Everton’s striker has come a long way in the last 18 months, and he now appears to be a complete striker. When it comes to getting on the end of clear-cut opportunities, he’s swift, physically imposing, and skilled.

With only 24 years on the clock, the Englishman has lots of time to develop, and he’s also a domestic player, which is a huge plus given the effects of Brexit on the transfer market.

He may find it difficult to win a three-and-a-half-year contract at Goodison Park, but he’s a proven Premier League star who could lead Arsenal’s line and has already been extensively linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.

Jonathan David (Lille)

This season, no one in Ligue 1 has scored more non-penalty goals than the Canadian’s ten.

David is only 22 years old, so he’s still in his early stages, but his numbers are amazing. He’s scored at least 10 non-penalty goals in each of his four senior seasons in Belgium and France, and this year looks to be his finest.

Since relocating to Lille, David has demonstrated a variety of skills, including his ability to walk on two feet. 14 of his 25 goals in the French top tier have been scored with his right foot, ten with his left, and one with his head.

Although his contract does not end until 2025, Lille is said to be prepared to sell. David has the potential to be a movie star.

Adam Hlozek (Sparta Prague)

He’s only 19 years old and would almost certainly have to be signed with another striker, but he’s already demonstrating significant promise in his native nation by finding the net on a regular basis.

Hlozek has scored 19 non-penalty goals and added 17 assists in the Czech First Division since the start of last season.

Since the age of 16, he has been a regular for Sparta, and his contract is set to expire in two years. Finally, Hlozek appears to be a promising young player who could be worth a lot more in the future.
