EPL: Arsenal in battle with UCL giants over RB Salzburg forward


English Premier League outfit Arsenal are expected to storm the January transfer window for a striker if they are unable to get their strikers scoring for the next coming weeks.

The Gunners’ highest goal scorer for the past two seasons has been firing blank while other options in the team like Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah have not lived up to expectations to serve as a cover.

RB Salzburg forward Patson Daka has been mentioned as the player the Gunners want to bring to the club as he could be available in the January transfer window or in the summer.

90min reports that the North London will have to battle out his signature with Man City and other Champions League giants for the signature f the attacker as Pep Guardiola is also desperate to have a new forward in the team.

Pep Guardiola is looking forward to having a replacement for Sergio Aguero who is already 32 years of age and Patson Daka has been tipped to be a perfect one.

However, Arsenal and other suitors have been told that Patson Daka will be available for £20 million and that is a fee that is affordable to all of the suitors.

RB Salzburg have the reputation of producing world class player having developed the likes of Erling Haaland and Sadio mane in the past. The Gunners will expect Patson Daka to develop to that level as well.

French forward Alexandre Lacazette may be forced out of the club to accommodate Patson Daka in the team as he has not been in the best form and is already linked away from the club.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta seem to have solve the defensive problems of the club with the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey at the midfield but he still has more to do with his attack.
