Former Arsenal star on Arsenal Transfer signings

Arsenal are set to miss out on Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic and former Arsenal star Nigel Winterburn has advice his former club on the best striker to go for as soon as possible.

Former Arsenal star Nigel Winterburn has come up with a suggestion for the Gunner’s to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin as the best striker to solve Arsenal striking problem.

Earlier this month reported that the Gunner’s are highly interested in Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic but things did not turn out for the Gunners as planned as the Serbian international is now look set to join Serie A giant Juventus. understands that the Gunnees are highly in need of a striker and are looking for a possible means to lure in either Alexander Isak or Jonathan David as both have been heavily linked to Emirates Stadium in recent weeks.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is another name linking to the North London club now, the England international stilk has three and half years left on hos Everton contract but this can not stop Mikel Arteta to go for hin if he feels the club needs him.

Winterburn thinks the Everton striker vould be the best solution to Arsenal attacking forces.

The former Arsenal star told Metro; “Arsenal need a striker who could potentially score 20 league goals a season. I know Calvert-Lewin has been mentioned and I have spoken to people who think he would fit perfectly and score those goals in an Arsenal team.

“The question is: Do Everton want to sell? Isak has been mentioned as well, so whatever you do there’s always an element of risk that comes along with it.

“The only conclusion I can make is that we definitely need a striker, and this problem isn’t going to go away because we’ll need one for next season anyway. Whenever we can get one in this transfer window remains to be seen.”

Dusan Vlahovic Sega

The former Arsenal star also went on to urge his former club to move on from the Vlahovic situation, with the 21-year-old look set for new life with Juventus.

Winterburn said: “Arteta has said himself the club are working hard to bring someone in, but it’s difficult and when managers usually say that, then it tells you they can’t get who they want right now.

“With Vlahovic, he’s been linked with Arsenal for so long, but I think he’s always wanted to go to Juventus. It’s time to move on from him, there’s no point talking about a guy who potentially doesn’t want to come to you.

“We might have to take a chance on somebody and with Isak he reminds me a little of Henry with the goals he scores.

“When Arsene Wenger brought [Thierry] Henry in, he played as a centre forward, but not in the role of a centre forward. He used to drift into clever little areas in midfield and on the left-hand side and if you look at Isak, and a lot of his goals, they come from a very similar area.

“But who knows, if we do bring somebody in then they need to hit the ground running.”
