Arteta speaks after the win against Aston Villa
This summer, Arsenal will definitely enter the transfer market with the top target being a few quality central strikers. At the moment, there is still no sign that they will successfully extend the contracts of Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette.
Besides familiar targets like Lautaro Martinez or Alexander Isak, the Gunners are also eyeing many names that are quite unfamiliar to fans, such as Cody Gakpo – a young star on the staff of PSV Eindhoven.
This season, Gakpo is booming strongly with 16 goals and 15 assists after 37 appearances, and he is also appreciated for his versatility when he can play in all positions in attack.
According to Kenneth Perez, a former PSV winger and now a football pundit, Gakpo is indeed a suitable signing for the Emirates Stadium team. Talking to ESPN, Perez shared (quoted by Metro):
“Arsenal will be a really great club for him . Of course, this is no longer the Arsenal of the past – they are just between the Top 5 and the Top 10 in the table.”
“They’re not back yet, but you can’t just look at the standings. Last year they were tenth. But if they do well, they’ll finish fourth this season.”
