When news broke that Arsenal have triggered the release clause of Jamie Vardy, little did Arsenal fans know the England international will reject us.
Unfortunately we are now seriously running out of options. This is as one of our reported targets Breel Embolo completed his move to Schalke 04. The German Bundesliga side completed the signing of Breel Embolo this week, and later boasted about beating Premier league side Arsenal, among others, to his signature.
Schalke 04 agreed a five-year deal with the Swiss international Embolo, who was signed shortly after his country’s exit from the on-going European championship this week.
Embolo, 19, has been tipped as one of the highest rated youngsters on the European continent, and was strongly linked with moves to the Premier League.
The German side has now decided to boast about their capturing of the youngster, claiming they beat the likes of Barcelona, Arsenal, Man United and Wolfsburg to the deal.
This is just the latest in a number of setbacks for the Gunners in their bid to sign a striker, with England international Jamie Vardy snubbing the North London club in favour of staying with surprise Premier League champions Leicester City, Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata looking an unlikely signing at present among others.
Michy Batshuayi has been another striker linked with the club, but he now looks destined to be a Chelsea player for next season. Lacazette is supposedly the latest striker to be linked with a move to Arsenal.
The question on every fans lips is how many more disappointments will there be this summer transfer window?
