Arsenal could axe Nketiah with Jan move for £20m “natural goalscorer”- opinion


Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a host of talent ahead of the January transfer window, as Mikel Arteta and Edu aim to bolster the Gunners’ squad to enable another title charge.

Squad depth and a dip in performance were attributed to the north Londoners’ inability to deliver the Premier League trophy last season, with the same mistakes not wanting to be made this term.

From midfielders to forwards, Arsenal have already been linked with a list of high-quality reinforcements in preparation for the winter transfer market, with the right captures having the ability to fire those at the Emirates to their first title win since 2004.

In terms of forwards, a report from 90min has this week speculated that both Arsenal and Manchester United are ‘on alert’ as Brazilian starlet Marcos Leonardo looks to be on the move in January.

The report revealed that the Gunners have scouted the 20-year-old, with the striker having the potential to depart Santos this winter after the 2023 Brazilian football calendar came to a close.

90min relayed that the Brazilian side, who unearthed the likes of Pele and Neymar Jr, will demand a fee in the region of £20m for their talisman, making him a potentially exciting acquisition for Arsenal to monitor.

With Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Jesus being the only recognisable centre-forwards in Arteta’s current squad, it’s imperative that the north Londoners consider diving into the market for an upgraded forward in the near future.

While Jesus battles injury, Nketiah has seen his place in the XI usurped by winger Leandro Trossard of late, telling the tale of the Englishman’s lack of conviction in the final third.
