Arsenal will need a striker at the end of the season and we are looking for options to strengthen London. Come in and choose who should be the next forward for the Gunners.

Arsenal is looking for options to strengthen:
After the urgent departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona and the departures of Alexandre Lacazzete and Eddie Nketiah when their contracts expire in the summer, Arsenal Football Club will have to prepare their next benchmark up front.
Given the impossibility of their board of directors to have their eyes well set like other clubs – the case of Wout Weghorst in Burnley and Luis Díaz in Liverpool – we bring you a list of players who could fit in with the Gunners’ claims.
Patrick Bamford – Leeds United
The 28-year-old English striker is at the best age to exploit his performance, although an ankle problem kept him out of the Leeds first team for a while.
Formed in the Nottingham Forest academy and bought by Chelsea in 2012, Bamford wandered through English promotion clubs such as MK Dons, Derby County, Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace, Norwich and Burnley.
After forging himself in the Championship like many jewels that English football has, he came to Leeds and became, under the tutelage of Marcelo Bielsa, a great player who gave him promotion to the Premier League.
Patrick Bamford in the Championship last season:
1️⃣6️⃣ goals, 4️⃣ assists in 4️⃣5️⃣ games.
Patrick Bamford in the Premier League this season:
1️⃣1️⃣ goals, 5️⃣ assists in 2️⃣0️⃣ games.

In his first season in the top flight he managed to vindicate his false steps and proved to have a great collective game to become a scorer.
Bamford is perhaps one of the best, but his price could stretch to 30 million because his contract ends in 2026.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin – Everton
Another English striker forged in iron by his rise through the ranks: Calvert-Lewin trained at Sheffield United and passed through Stalybridge and Northampton before landing at Everton for less than £2m.
In this edition of the Premier League, he started with three goals in three games, but a broken finger kept him out of the rest of the season and he returned the last five days to a completely out of tune team.
Calvert-Lewin is a box man who has an incredible ability to create his own chances and score goals. Something important: he is only 24 years old, but that makes his market price around 55 million.

Armando Broja – Southampton/Chelsea
The striker who represents Albania has had a dream season with Southampton: 6 goals in 19 Premier League games and offensive leader of a team for the first time in his career.
While it would be premature to say that he is a huge promise for English football, Broja has great physical power, display of speed and the arch between the eyebrows.
The negative is that he is on loan from Chelsea – the club that owns the pass – and the Blues fans want him back at Stamford Bridge. With only 20 years, the figure that Arsenal would have to pay is unknown and depends on how the season ends.
Armando Broja is such a powerful & fast dribbler. Absolute menace for defenders down the right wing. ⚡️?? pic.twitter.com/Rr72EW3dI2

Jonathan David – Lille
The forward from Canada and brother of Alphonse has the task of taking his country to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 on his back and he is just one point away from achieving it.
He plays for Lille and last season he established himself in Ligue 1 in a great duo with Burak Yilmaz. He has skill, dribbling, speed, physical bearing and a frightening scoring ability: 12 goals in 23 games in the local tournament and 3 goals in 6 games in the Champions League.
With Canada he has 20 goals in 27 games at just 22 years old and would be the highest option. He arrived in Lille for 27 million euros and it would be strange if he left for less than 60, considering that Arsenal already has previous business with the French team when he bought Nicolas Pépé for 80 million.
