Three strikers Arsenal could sign before the transfer deadline

Three strikers Arsenal could sign before the summer transfer slams to a shut next month

By Immie Harry

1) Edinson Cavani

After a slow start for the Gunners this season, Arsene Wenger is looking for fresh strikers to bring an increase to their current attacking options. One of Wenger’s potential signings in the pipeline is Edinson Cavani ,who has been playing for the French capital team Paris-Saint-Germain since 2013, and after a confident couple of seasons with the club, is himself looking for a change. It has been said that the 28-year-old Uruguayan footballer is expecting a bid to come from the Arsenal manager before the window closes. With his potential transfer to the club, the north London side will be hoping that he will be bringing his impressive scoring record from his time at Paris Saint-Germain to Emirates Stadium.

2) Gonzalo Higuain

The Gunners have shown great interest in the Napoli number 9 shirt since the transfer window began, but the Italian football club is fighting hard to keep their Argentinian striker, who has scored 35 goals since the start of his contract in 2013. Wenger has reportedly shied off in bidding for the striker since Napoli’s asking price for Higuain was out of Wenger’s price range. However, there could be a possibility for the Arsenal manager to hold off until the January transfer window when he will sit and hope that the international side have lowered their fees.

3) Saido Berahino

West Brom seem to be struggling to budge on offers during the transfer window for their striker Saido Berahino. The club is finding it hard to say goodbye to their young talent with chairman Jeremy Peace reported to be saying that ‘he is staying’, according to an interview with BBC Sport. However, we can’t rule out the possibility of a bid being accepted, but with offers already rejected from Tottenham, it’s not looking likely that Peace will budge. It seems that if Arsenal are in any chance of grabbing the 22-year-old, they will have to supply a replacement for the loss of the striker for West Bromwich Albion.
