Arsenal have a golden opportunity to sign the 'next Thierry Henry' - thanks to rivals going for big goals


With the January transfer window in the books, Arsenal’s big summer splash in the market means they will have to make do with a quiet month.

There were no significant arrivals or departures at the Emirates, meaning Mikel Arteta’s Premier League inclinations will depend on his current squad, with no help coming in the striker position.

It seems likely that a new forward will be a major priority for the Gunners in a competitive market in the summer. But it could ultimately be a good fit for Arsenal.

According to transfer reporter ben jacobsThere could be a ‘merry-go-round’ situation that benefits the Gunners and their interest in AC Milan forward Rafael Leao, a player who has been dubbed ‘the new Thierry Henry’.

“So we know Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are all going to be in the mix and there will be crossover as they look to acquire their top targets. I think Leao may be a by-product of a kind of merry-go-round in the summer as it is clear from Premier League clubs that the primary targets appear to be Victor Osimhen and possibly Toney as well, even more so for Arsenal. I think with Chelsea, it’s likely that Osimhen is top for them, and Toney is a bit further down the list.

“Those three clubs cannot get their number one target because of competition or cost. And then we have a wave of secondary strikers who can come into the game because those clubs will have money to spend. And I think LEO would fall into that category.

Leao signed a five-year deal at San Siro in the summer of 2022, but goals have been somewhat difficult to find in Serie A this season, netting only three times in 19 appearances, despite playing in the left wing position. Be from.
