Arsenal’s Dubai trip hints at new role for £5.5m transfer after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang departure

The Gunners are looking for solutions to their attacking problems after the exit of their former captain

With the January transfer window now finally shut, there is one area of the Arsenal squad that appears to be an obvious weakness going into the rest of the season.

Folarin Balogun has left on loan to join Middlesbrough for the remainder of the campaign, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw his contract terminated by mutual consent to help him facilitate a move to Barcelona.

This means that the Gunners are painfully short up front. To make matters worse, their two remaining centre forward options – Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah – have just two Premier League goals from open play between them so far.
