Report: Arsenal is working towards completing a deal to add a ‘lethal’ striker to their squad by the end of this week…



Arsenal is on track to complete a deal to sign a ‘lethal’ striker by the end of this week.


Report: Arsenal are aiming to finalize an agreement to acquire a “lethal” striker before the conclusion of this week.


Since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s departure in January 2022, the Gunners have been lacking a genuine goal scorer in their lineup.


Despite a promising beginning to his career in North London, Gabriel Jesus has not quite lived up to expectations, and Kai Havertz is not seen as a viable long-term solution.


Consequently, it is evident that sporting director Edu has been actively identifying potential striking options in recent weeks, and it now seems that a deal to secure a highly skilled marksman is drawing nearer.


Arsenal is aiming to finalize the signing of Viktor Gyokeres this week.


According to reports from Portugal, as per the Evening Standard, Arsenal is optimistic about securing a deal to bring in Sporting striker Viktor Gyokeres by the conclusion of this week.


Gyokeres, described as ‘lethal’ by TEAMtalk, outperformed Manchester City’s Erling Haaland last season, scoring an impressive 43 goals and providing 15 assists.


The agreement is believed to be in an advanced stage, although the exact cost remains unknown.


TBR stated last week that Arsenal was prepared to offer up to £60m for the 26-year-old, so the final figure is likely to be around that amount.


Fabrizio Romano has contradicted the reports suggesting that Arsenal is close to signing Gyokeres. According to Romano, the negotiations between Arsenal and Gyokeres are not at an advanced stage.


Fabrizio Romano, a transfer specialist, has refuted claims that a deal to sign Gyokeres is near completion.


“Arsenal’s negotiations for Gyokeres are not as advanced as reported. They initiated contact with the player several months ago, between April and May.”


” While they are aware of the €100 million release clause, they are also considering the overall cost of the deal including salary and other factors.”


“They are taking their time to carefully evaluate their options. Therefore, the potential signing of Gyokeres is not imminent or close at the moment, but it remains a possibility.”


” I believe Arsenal will not overspend on Gyokeres, so they may explore different deal structures or consider other opportunities.”
