Mikel Arteta has managed to give the Gunners some oxygen with the hires from the summer market. The club has achieved an acceptable performance and sits in the top 5 of the table, increasingly closer to the leaders.
The summer market signings focused on strengthening the defense, but now the club faces a severe problem at the front.
The Gunners have a wet powder, as they have only managed to score 15 goals in 13 games. Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazzete are not in good shape, and on several occasions, they have been seen to fail very simple scoring occasions.
For Arteta, it is clear that the club needs new blood in the front line. It is for this reason that it is very likely that in the winter market the Gunners will seek to incorporate a striker.
Royal Society player Alexander Isak is one of the options closely followed by the Gunners. Isak came to Real Sociedad from the star-maker Borussia Dortmund, and since his arrival in Spanish territory, he has not stopped scoring goals. This season the Swede has scored six goals in all competitions.
Ivan Toney has caught the attention of several clubs. The Brentford player has participated in all the club’s Premier League games and scored four goals.
The Gunners need to make a quick adjustment to their offensive line if they don’t want to repeat their 1912-13 season where the club only scored 26 goals in 38 matches and is the season where they scored the fewest in all club history.
