Arsenal could pursue five forwards after missing out on Tammy Abraham’s departure.
Abraham appears to be on his way to Roma from Chelsea, allowing Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to hunt for alternative options.
With rumours claiming that Roma are now dominating the battle for Tammy Abraham, Arsenal’s search for a new striker may have to take a new turn. The Englishman has fallen out of favor at Chelsea, with Thomas Tuchel preparing to part ways with him this summer.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
With Romelu Lukaku expected to sign a club-record deal at Stamford Bridge, Abraham will fall further down the pecking order.
The Gunners are looking for a new forward this summer, since Alexandre Lacazette’s contract is coming to an end.
Lacazette has failed to deliver the goals that justify his high price tag, prompting Mikel Arteta to look for ways to improve his options in the position.
However, they will have to abandon their chase of Abraham, with rumours in Italy claiming that Roma and the Blues have agreed on terms for the striker.
Daily Express Sport examines five other strikers that the Gunners may choose instead…
Lautaro Martinez, like Abraham, has been a target for Arsenal for the whole of the summer.
Last season, the Argentine scored 17 goals to help Inter Milan win the Serie A title, piqueing Arteta’s interest.
Tottenham is thought to have had a proposal accepted, but Arsenal could yet make a move if they can outbid their rivals.
While Patrick Bamford had established himself as a prolific goalscorer in the Championship, there were doubts about his ability to make the move up to the Premier League.
Bamford, on the other hand, proved his critics wrong in Leeds United’s first top-flight season in 16 years, scoring 17 goals to help the Whites finish in the top half.
The Englishman is in the final year of his Elland Road contract, so a deal may not be as difficult to come by as one might imagine.
Ollie Watkins, who joined Aston Villa ahead of their second season back in the Premier League, was another striker who shone for a newly promoted team.
Watkins scored 14 goals in his first Premier League season, including a hat-trick against Liverpool and a brace against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
He is under contract until 2025. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
