Arsenal preparing to offload veteran striker next year

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has identified Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic as a prime replacement for 30 year old French man Alexandre Lacazette who has been struggling for form and also from injuries since the 2020/2021 season .

The French man has not really showed his prowess which made him a phenomenon through Europe.

Since his move from Ligue 1 side Lyon in 2017, the center-forward has been under-firing for the Gunners and there is now a need for change.

And according to reports from reliable newsletter CompleteSports, Luka Jovic has become Mikel Arteta’s chosen one to replace the French man when the transfer window opens.

The 23-year-old Serbia International, who joined Real Madrid from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019 has so far failed to live up to expectations at the Spanish club.

The young striker was sent out on loan back to Frankfurt in the 2020/2021 season where he made 18 appearances, scoring four goals and registering one assist in total.

Luka Jovic has since returned to Real Madrid but has yet to find the net in any of his six appearances in all competitions so far.

Despite that disappointing start, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta still believes in the young forward and will now make a move to sign him next year.

That said, it remains to be seen if Luka Jovic will be willing to prove his worth at Real Madrid or prefer a move to Arsenal to replace the wantaway Alexandre Lacazette when the transfer window opens.
