A lack of firepower through the middle is hampering Arsenal's title bid so a new striker is top of the agenda for Mikel Arteta.

Ivan Toney has repeatedly been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, although Brentford are thought to value their main man in excess of £100 million. Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic has also been talked about as a potential option.

Napoli's Victor Osimhen is also on Arsenal's radar, with the forward set to leave Serie A in the summer. A move for the Nigeria wouldn't be cheap, however, he could be the goalscorer that the Gunners are crying out for.

Borja Mayoral of Getafe is another option for Arteta, however, it's claimed Arsenal don't have the funds to pay his release clause this month, meaning it could be one to keep an eye on in the summer.

It's claimed the forward is available for around £22million, however, Arsenal would have to sell players to raise funds for a move.

Meanwhile, Arteta is looking for long-term defensive recruits and Arsenal are plotting a move for Ajax teenager Jorrel Hato, who has become a first-team regular despite being just 17 years of age.

Brentford loanee David Raya is also set to become a permanent addition, with a pre-agreed £27 million deal in the bag. That could see Aaron Ramsdale attract interest if he continues to play second fiddle.

A lack of minutes has seen Emile Smith Rowe linked with a departure, but he is reportedly not available.
