Three Strikers Arsenal Can Sign If They Don’t Get Benzema

Arsenal have continuously been linked to Real Madrid’s number 9 but it is obvious that all effort to get him may eventually end in futility. Should the deal fail to pull through, Arsenal can turn their attention to the following forwards so as to end the lingering attacking problem.

Fernando Llorente:

The 6ft 5 Spain born attacker can provide Wenger with the desired number of goals and threat that will earn them the title. The giant attacker is known for his strength matched with good ariel ability and good finishing. He is an upgrade over Oliver Giroud and could provide a massive step up to Arsenal’s attack. The 30-year-old spent most of his career at Athletico Bilbao where he scored 118goals in 333appearances before he moved on a free transfer to Juventus in the summer of 2013.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The fast Winger, who can also play as a point man, will provide Wenger with good option upfront. He is a player similar to Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck but different in the sense that he is more clinical in terms of his finishings. The 26-year-old Gabon international scored 16goals in 31appearances for Dortmund last season, and Wenger is said to be looking for a 15goals per-season player. This type of player would no doubt fit in to Arsenal but moving him away from Germany may prove a herculean task. However, the release of Lewandowski from Dortmund last year proves that anything is possible with the German club.

Alexandre Lacazette

Lacazette will be the best option among the three in the strikers list. The 24-year-old France attacker netted 27goals in 33appearances for Lyon and helped them qualify for Champions League. Arsene Wenger is known to favor French players and might be tempted to snap up a deal for this promising striker who is also being monitored by Liverpool and Manchester United.

Only a very large sum can move Lacazette away from France but Wenger may be weary of French League players because they succeed in their League and fall short in the EPL.
