The Gunners made Brentford star worth 80 million pounds, Ivan Toney, the number 1 transfer target in the context that coach Mikel Arteta is said to want to bring in a new striker.
However, Toney is not the only player linked to Arsenal. The Emirates Stadium team are among the clubs monitoring RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo.
Not stopping here, Arsenal is also interested in Wolves winger Pedro Neto and is ready to consider loaning Ousmane Dembele from Paris Saint-Germain.
Despite contact with many different players, The Athletic confirmed Arsenal “does not have much budget to carry out important transfer activities in January”.
Additionally, Arsenal were also concerned about breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules – which is why they chose to sign David Raya on loan rather than permanently in the summer.
Once Arsenal are in a more comfortable position regarding FFP, their immediate priority will be to turn Raya’s loan deal into a permanent purchase. And then, they will prioritize bringing in a new striker.
