The Emirates Stadium team needs to strengthen their attack and has spent a large amount of money to prepare for the recruitment of a striker in 2024. The two strikers most closely linked to them are Brentford’s Ivan Toney and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen. .
Journalist Dean Jones believes Osimhen can have the same impact at Arsenal as Haaland has had for Man City since arriving at the Etihad. However, Jones added that signing the Napoli star mid-season would be difficult, with the £120m price tag making the deal “almost impossible”.
Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “I think Osimhen would be the type of striker who could strengthen Arsenal’s ambition to challenge for the title. He has the ability to score consistently and reliably which I don’t feel they have.
I look at Arsenal’s attack, they lack the flow of goals week in and week out that teams must have to win the league. Osimhen has that. I think he is something they are missing. Osimhen could be Arsenal’s version of Erling Haaland.“
