Time is perhaps running out for Arsenal’s French striker Olivier Giroud. Thanks to his off field antics, it looks as if his time at the Emirates is coming to a premature end. If reports from major tabloids are to be believed, Wenger will reportedly receive £100 million to improve his current crop and so we here at Soccersouls decided to provide three of the most logical strikers the Gunners can pursue their chase in the coming summer.
1. Jackson Martinez:
The 27 year old has been irresistible this season scoring 18 goals in 32 appearances for Porto in all competitions.
Italian club Napoli were interested in the Columbian striker before Gonzalo Higuain eventually arrived from Real Madrid. Tactically brilliant, fitting any jigsaw, Martinez has sheer pace, a lethal finish and a terrific work rate which will be key to adapt to Arsenal’s playing style if he does arrive at the Emirates. Moreover, Martinez has that raw pace to burn defenders on Jo’s trail and as reports suggest he might make a move away from Porto this summer. He won’t come cheap though and as Porto remains a tough club to deal with, but Arsenal negotiators have enough experience to seal any mega deals.
