Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners Linked With Two Strikers

By on July 6, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Arsenal are linked with two strikers.

Robert Lewandowski

Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic and Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski are both on Arsenal’s short list to replace want-away captain Robin van Persie, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that the Gunners scouting team are set to meet next week at the club’s London Colney training ground where discussing possible replacements for van Persie will be top of their agenda.

The Mail believe that Jovetic and Lewandowski are both rated highly in north London having been watched by Arsenal scouts on several occasions last season, and both players will be discussed at the meeting.

Jovetic is a Montenegro international and has enjoyed two excellent seasons in Serie A with Fiorentina. However, Arsene Wenger may face stiff competition for the 22-year-old, who has been strongly linked with a £25m move to Chelsea this summer (source: Daily Mail).

Polish striker Robert Lewandowski has also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester United thought to be close to signing him earlier in the summer (source: Guardian).

It remains to be seen whether either player would be capable of replacing van Persie though, with the Dutchman eager to secure his exit from the club before Arsenal leave for their Asia tour on July 24th.

FT Verdict

If Van Persie does go this summer, which is looking increasingly likely, we’re not going to be able to find a player of his quality to come straight in.

Both Jovetic or Lewandowski are fine talents and i would be happy with either of them at Arsenal. I’ll leave it in Wenger’s capable hands to find a suitable replacement for our out-going captain.
