After having signed Granit Xhaka, Arsenal are not wasting time and have moved unto their other targets. We have been linked with the signing of various centre backs and strikers which means the club are this time in agreement with the fans. A striker and a centre back signing is just a must this summer after solving the midfield problem.
On the striker front, we have been linked with the signing of Vardy, Icardi, Aubameyang, Cavani, Morata and now reports from Italy are claiming we have made official contact and a bid of 25 million for highly regarded Napoli and Colombian striker Duvan Zapata. The 25-year-old striker who is currently on loan at Udinese from Napoli had a considerably okay season.
He scored eight goals in 25 matches which is better than the Seven goals Morata scored last season. Our contact with his club was officially confirmed by the president of Udinese who was quoted to have said; “There is a clause that allows Napoli to recall him early from the two-year loan,” Soldati told Radio Kiss Kiss .
“He is very happy in Udine, his agent said that too and I hope he can remain with our jersey.
“He also received many offers from abroad, including from Arsenal.
However, first we want coach Beppe Iachini to get to know the team so they can make shared decisions.”
Zapata is certainly not the type of player Arsenal fans will be hoping Wenger will sign for the club this summer but considering Wenger had gets it wrong when it comes to signing strikers, we should give him some chance. However, hopefully the Frenchman knows the fans will not take it easy if he signs Zapata and he flops. The fans have lot all patience and it is the fault of Wenger himself.
