Jovetic? Higuain? Arsene Wenger May Surprise You By Signing This French Youngster!

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal may be linked with Jovetic, Benteke, Higuain and several others but as an Arsenal fan deep down you still have the feeling that Wenger might surprise you by signing a French kid from Ligue1. Season after season, Wenger brings home an unknown talent after two months of speculations that will see almost all of the big names linked with the Gunners.

The number of strikers linked with Arsenal have been no less this time around as Wenger scouts the market for an apt forward to be brought to the Emirates this summer. With the Champions League spot secured, the Gunners will have to strengthen their squad to push for a silverware at-least during the up coming season and with a reported £70m transfer budget allotted to the manager, this summer looks positive than any other summer in the recent years. One advantage that the manager has is the freedom to bring in players who can be an improvement to the squad rather than a replacement for an outgoing star. With none of Gunners being linked with a move elsewhere any move that Wenger makes would be an improvement to the current squad.

So when the likes of Jovetic, Higuain have been strongly linked with a move, we will take a look at this youngster rumoured to be an Arsenal target to see if he is really appropriate for a club of Arsenal’s stature

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

 Prolific striker

The talented young St. Etienne striker has been absolutely breathtaking in the Ligue 1 this season, scoring 19 times from 34 appearances. He is just second to Zlatan in the highest scorer’s list and that speaks volumes about this Gabon international. His precision and eye for the goal are remarkable and these have brought him to the radar of many European clubs with Arsenal’s North London rival Spurs and Rubin Kazan heading the list. He has also expressed his desire to leave his current club and thus the others, including Arsenal, look to exploit the situation.

Cheap deal

The amount of money that is required to bring in Higuain or Jovetic to the club will most probably break the Gunners transfer record and knowing Wenger, he might opt for this cheaper option. He has always had a tendency of not breaking the bank for any particular player and thus Aubameyang can be the ideal man for him. The player have also shown significant interest in leaving Ligue 1 and this may just help in pulling down his price further. Although Wenger has no shortage of money and the recent sponsorship deal with Puma has added to his kitty, he might still go in for this youngster.

French connection

The obvious French connection! Arsene Wenger has always preferred the French league to be his favourite shopping destination and Arsenal have boasted some of the best French talents. Aubameyang will be no different, having spent so much time in France the player can very well gel in with the manager at London as he will have the luxury of settling down at his new home with ease.

Whatever Arsene Wenger decides to do, signing Aubameyang alone will never be a silverware winning, 20-goal-a-season signing that the Gunners so desperately need. Aubameyang along with a prolific and proven goal scorer is what Arsenal needs.
