After hiring a new German scout, Arsenal’s chances of replacing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a Bundesliga striker have improved.
According to Temmybiz.com, the Gunners have strengthened their scouting department with the addition of Florian Bluchel from Bayern Munich.
After a series of disciplinary violations, Aubameyang was relieved of his duties as Arsenal captain on Tuesday morning.
The new scenario casts doubt on the Gabonese international’s future in north London, which is bad news given that Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette’s contracts are both scheduled to expire.
Edu will need to sign a new striker at some point, and The Arsenal Way looks at three possible options Bluchel may offer to the club’s management.
The 25-year-old has been outstanding for Bayer Leverkusen this season, leading the Bundesliga in scoring with 14 goals.
Before joining his current team, he had a difficult time at Roma and RB Leipzig, but following a good European Championship, he has really stepped up this season.
After a rough period in Serie A with AC Milan, Andre Silva has rekindled his career in the Bundesliga.
This season, the Portuguese striker has been a revelation for RB Leipzig, scoring three goals in the Champions League and four in the Bundesliga.
The striker is practically at peak age at 26 years old, and he may be considered a trustworthy choice.
Wout Weghorst would undoubtedly be the last option among these strikers, but he remains a chance.
The Dutch striker has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs in the past, but no trade has ever materialized.
His goal-scoring record hasn’t been terrific so far this season, with only five goals, but his six-foot-four frame offers a different dilemma for defenders.
