Arsenal will start making plans for the January transfer market, which will open in just over three weeks.
The Gunners are apparently on the market for a striker, as both Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette’s current contracts expire in just over six months.
In the meantime, club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is struggling in front of goal, having failed to score in each of his previous six Premier League outings, which is his longest stretch in an Arsenal shirt.
Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been linked with Mikel Arteta’s side in recent weeks, with the Mirror reporting that the England international is one of their main objectives for next summer.
Calvert-Lewin has now gone to social media, leaving a comment on Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale’s Instagram page.
The 24-year-reaction old’s was “Ramboooo.”
Before establishing themselves with the senior squad, the two spent time together in Sheffield United’s academy and also played together for England’s Under-21 side.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that Ramsdale can leverage their friendship to persuade his compatriot to join them in the coming months, after Everton manager Rafa Benitez recently warned that the Toffees may be obliged to sell a number of their top players in order to reinvest the money elsewhere.
When asked about selling players, Benitez remarked, “That is something we have to learn.” “The owner is willing to spend money, but we can’t go on spending forever without bringing money in.”
“I believe we will have to be creative in the future, but for the time being, we must ensure we can get the best out of our players.”
“Some clubs have sold players at the proper time and upgraded their squads with the money they got.”
