Top Priority Target Emerges for Arsenal


Arsenal is actively seeking new targets this summer, focusing mainly on strengthening the forward position before the new season begins. While several players have been linked to the club, key targets include Viktor Gyokeres and Ivan Toney. According to the recent update from The Mirror, Benjamin Sesko has reported to be Arsenal top-priority.

The Mirror’s Journalist John Cross has said that Benjamin Sesko of RB Leipzig is currently the top target for Arsenal. Finally, Sesko’s £55 million release clause ensures that the Gunners are not paying over the odds for this talent. However, what would the Arsenal get in return for signing Sesko?

Benjamin Sesko: The Next Generation Striker Arsenal Needs

Benjamin Sesko is considered as a top striker. He is one of the of a new generation of forwards that are tall, fast, and great finishers in the box. Sesko is 6 feet 4 inches tall and has displayed good pace that possibly surpasses the likes of Gabriel Martinelli. He is only twenty years old, and he is still some way from reaching his full potential. However, there is no player in Europe with his physical attributes. Sesko, with the right guidance in coaching could develop into a star and Arsenal is the perfect place for him to achieve that next level of heights in his career.

Several Premier League clubs are also expressing interest in players that Arsenal might offload in the summer. This could lead to a scenario where new signings are equal to the number of shedding offs to avoid the expansion of the squad size and meet the established financial restrictions. Some of the players who are likely to leave the club next summer include Eddie Nketiah.

Eddie Nketiah’s Future at Arsenal in Doubt

Eddie Nketiah, a former Hale End academy product of Arsenal, may possibly see himself limited in game times next season. Furthermore, with Kai Havertz currently regarded as the preferred option as the first striker and rumors circulating about a potential new forward arriving at Arsenal, Nketiah’s prospects look rather bleak. It is reported that some clubs like Wolverhampton Wanderers and Crystal Palace are considered for his signing. However, Arsenal’s £50 million asking price for Nketiah might may well be a sticking point, here. Having an $3. 99 billion valuation, Arsenal has recently adopted the strategy of getting the best possible value for their players, such as Folarin Balogun to AS Monaco.

Nketiah’s situation is complicated. Although he stands a better chance of finding success in another team, love for Arsenal and the conviction in the ability to become a hero in the only team he has supported his whole life makes it hard to leave. This is just one of the many faceted situation that Arsenal will encounter in this transfer market period.

Gunner’s Summer Transfer Strategy

Arsenal’s transfer plans this summer can best be described as the concept of both ingoing and outgoing transfers. The club intends to strengthen its teams and implement a policy to meet the new requirements of the Profit and Sustainability Rules of the league. The dressing room at the moment is rather full. So the question of managing squad numbers becomes an important one. Nketiah can be viewed as a good candidate for an exit. Especially to the interested clubs and should Arsenal decide that he will not benefit from a regular playing time at the club.

If properly managed, Arsenal could make some quality additions to the team. It would make the club a serious contender in the next season.
