However, as it is our model, we will be taking a brief overview of the club, its history, why they are getting linked with strikers and how this can translate into more profit for our readers. So, sit back and ride with us;

Short Introduction on Arsenal

Arsenal are currently at the summit of the Premier League table. They lead the closest challenger Manchester City with six points, having played a game more. The current club manager, Mikel Arteta, has completely transformed the club from a state of chaos since his arrival in December 2019.

It has been over six years since the Gunners qualified for the prestigious UEFA Champions League. However, it is looking likely that they will be participating in Europe’s elite competition next season.

History Of Arsenal

Late in the year 1886, a group of employees from the Woolwich Arsenal Armament Factory came together and made the decision to establish a football team. 

They gave themselves the name (Dial Square), in honour of the sundial that was located on top of the entrance of the building that housed the factory.

Dial Square’s inaugural match, which took place on December 11, 1886, was a resounding success. The team won by a thumping score of 6-0 against Eastern Wanderers. The name “Royal Arsenal” was chosen in place of Dial Square for the club not long after that game.

During its formative years, Arsenal played their home games at a number of venues scattered throughout the Plumstead neighbourhood. They got their start on Plumstead Common, but for their second season, Royal Arsenal moved to the nearby Sportsman Ground on Plumstead Marshes.

Plumstead Marshes is located in the neighbourhood of Plumstead. It was at this location that the Club would make its debut in the London Senior Cup for the very first time.

The club relocated once more, this time to the Invicta Ground, where they would remain for almost six years. The transfer came after the club had been at its previous location for the previous year.

Henry Norris, the chairman, again saw that relocation was necessary for the club. He identified Highbury as a potential new location. And in the year 1913, following the club’s demotion, it relocated to its new location.

Within two years of moving to their new location, the name “Woolwich” was eliminated from the club’s name, and “Arsenal FC” was adopted as the new official name for the club.

Throughout the first six seasons of the peacetime era, Arsenal enjoyed a degree of success, albeit not overwhelming. Chairman Norris yearned for more; therefore, in 1925, he began searching for a successor to the previous manager. 

There was one applicant in particular, a Yorkshireman by the name of Herbert Chapman, who would make an indelible mark on the Club. Then in 2006, the club moved to the Emirates Stadium after spending 96 years at Highbury. This was led by the greatest manager in the club’s history, Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal’s Top 4 Striking Targets and Their Likelihood Of Signing

Arsenal has been linked with many players in the past, with the majority of them being strikers and midfielders. This is due to the club’s deficiency in these areas. Despite the signing of Gabriel Jesus last summer from Manchester City, the club still looks short up front.

While Eddie Nketiah stepped up to be counted when Jesus was put injured for three months, there is still a huge drop-down in quality. So, as another summer transfer window approaches, it is quite natural that the links to various players will resurface.

Below is a list of the top four Arsenal striker targets according to great transfer sources;

Dusan Vlahovic

The Serbian striker has been of interest to the Gunners in the past. Previously while he was at Fiorentina, Arsenal were said to have made an offer for the striker, who instead chose to move to Juventus.

Since his move to the Old Lady, he has not set the world alight with his performances. It is said that Arsenal are still interested in his services and may try once again to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners still need a pure goalscorer who is also a physical monster. Vlahovic fits the bill perfectly, but it is not certain that Mikel Arteta would want to go back for a player that rejected his advances in the past.

He once said that a player should not need to be convinced to play for the team. However, Vlahovic’s qualities may be too great to overlook for the Spanish manager. 

If you think the Gunners would bring the Serbian to the club, you can stake on this possibility with Bookies like 1xBet. You can read our review on the betting giant on Betting Tips Africa, where our experts have analysed every detail you need to know.

Victor Osimhen

The Nigerian has been in red-hot form this season. He is spearheading Napoli’s title charge, and UEFA Champions League run. It is only natural that the big clubs will be sniffing around his signature.

The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and even Paris St Germain have been linked with moves for the former Wolfsburg man. Also, the Gunners are said to be very interested in signing him.

The level of competition for the Nigerian’s signature may be too great for the Gunners to compete with. Also, Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis is widely known as a tough negotiator who would try to milk every penny out of his prized asset.

Throughout Mikel Arteta’s short reign at the club, he has avoided getting into a bidding war with any club (e.g. Mykhailo Mudryk), and it is not certain he would start now.

However, bettors can take a risk on Osimhen joining the Gunners for next season with any of their preferred Sportsbooks hosted on our site.

Dominic Calvert Lewin

The Everton striker is a physical specimen and would give the Gunners a new dimension in attack. His tenacity, aerial ability and ruthless finishing are qualities missing from the Gunners’ attack. 

It is little wonder that the club is linked to his signature, as he may be available for a moderate transfer fee due to his contractual situation.

The Everton striker is physically a good fit for Mikel Arteta’s squad. However, his technical abilities may not be at the level the Spanish manager wants. Financially, physically and mentally, this deal is a viable one for Arsenal, and it may boil down to choice. 

The likes of Betway and Bet365 would be offering good odds in this regard, and bettors can take advantage of it.

Jonathan David

Again, Arsenal have been linked with his signature for a couple of seasons now. The Lille FC striker is having a fine season and would be on the radar of many clubs. Reliable sources have indicated that the Gunners may be preparing to table a bid for the Canadian striker.

The Canadian is a good fit for Arsenal in a stylistic sense, and he would also not cost over the top. Furthermore, the Gunners have a great business relationship with Lille FC, having signed Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Magalhaes from them in recent years.

However, this would be a great risk for bettors to stake on, as David is very similar to Gabriel Jesus in many ways. 

On the other hand, if anyone is willing to take such a risk, then betting sites hosted on Betting Tips Africa are ready to take their bets in this regard.
