Opinion: Arsenal Should Replace Aubameyang in January With Serie A Striker to Keep Top 4 Hopes Alive

The January transfer window is fast approaching, and Arsenal FC will be among the teams that should be busy because of their African players who will depart for the AFCON tournament which will take place in January when the English Premier League will still be ongoing. The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Thomas Partey, Nicolas Pepe and Mohammed Elneny will be representing their countries respectively. Although Arsenal FC are in a good moment right now, they have gone 9 games without a defeat in the premier league which has seen them climb up the table to 5th position just 6 points behind premier league leaders Chelsea FC.

The January transfer window will present Arsenal FC with a great opportunity to replace Aubameyang with a prolific striker from the Italian Serie A. Arsenal FC have been linked with a 21-year-old striker from Fiorentina FC, Dusan Vlahovic, who could well be a realistic target and a good replacement for the Arsenal FC captain in January. Dusan Vlahovic is a prolific striker who wears the number 9 jersey for Fiorentina FC. He has been at the club for more than 4 years playing 122 games and scoring 47 goals in the process.

The young striker will fit the bill well at Arsenal FC, he is at the age bracket of the type of player Mikel Arteta wants in his team, he is tall, strong and energetic. The Serbian international has scored 5 goals for his country in the ongoing World Cup qualifiers. He is also enjoying a good season in Serie A where he has scored 18 goals in all competitions and made 1 assist in 13 appearances so far.

Picture of Dusan Vlahovic:

Dusan Vlahovic averages a total of 1.38 per game, an impressive record when you consider his age and the team he plays for. The player is valued at around €80 million euros. If Arsenal FC can sign the young striker in January, it will be a statement of intent from them, especially because they will miss the presence of their captain who may not be available in January due to his country's participation in the AFCON tournament.
