Arsenal’s hunt for a Striker continues in the summer as their main attacking options in Eddie Nketiah and Alexander Lacazette will be leaving the club at the end of this campaign after seeing ex-captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang leave the club in the winter on mutual consent.
The Gunners are one of European top teams to be keeping tabs on Darwin Nunez a player whose skill and style of play has been likened to Veteran striker Luiz Suarez.
Arteta and Edu were heavily interested in landing a Striker during the window as they were in forefront of landing Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina until the Serbian committed to playing for Juventus and now the Gunners have to go for other options.
Italian outlet Calciomercato have reported that the North Londoners are one of the major teams keeping an eye out for the 22 years old alongside Bayern Munich, Westham and Manchester United although Benfica’s asking fee of £53.9 might be a deterrent.
The Primeira Liga current highest goalscorer has been compared to Luiz Suarez and reports as far back as 2020 claims Barcelona were willing to replace the Veteran with his fellow country man.
Arsenal will be looking to land the Uruguayan international and also have a list of alternatives if the move would not pull through.
