Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand shares some advice for Arsenal as Mikel Arteta’s men are hunting for a new striker in the January 2022 transfer window.
Arsenal have made a new striker their current transfer priority especially after former captain Pierre-Emerick Eubameyang was suspended from the squad due to disciplinary issues and he has currently missed the last eight games. The Gunners.
Mikel Arteta’s need to bring in a new striker is even greater, especially for next season as Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah’s contracts expire at the end of this season and both are unlikely to renew their contracts at the Emirates Stadium.
Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic has been widely touted as a key transfer target for the North London giants who have reportedly even offered IDR 900 billion to the Serie A club plus providing Lucas Torreira in a permanent transfer to Artemio Franchi.
The Serbia international striker is indeed highly coveted by Arsenal considering his current contract situation at the club The Viola while his form has also been very convincing having scored 18 goals and three assists in 22 appearances across all competitions this season.
But former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand suggested The Gunners to catch up to Sebastien Haller who previously failed during his time at West Ham United scoring just 14 goals in 54 appearances across all competitions.
Speak to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano on YouTube channel Five, he said, “I think [Sebastien] Haller will be good for you [Arsenal].”
It must be admitted that Ivory Coast striker Sebastien Haller has managed to revive his career since his move to Ajax and has scored 22 goals and six assists in 24 appearances this season, including equaling Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of scoring in all six Champions League group stage games.
