Arsenal now told it’s £60m for ‘fantastic’ striker Arteta is eyeing as Ivan Toney alternative


In order to ensure that they advance farther in the title fight this time around, Arsenal is searching for a new striker during the January transfer window.

The Gunners ensured they headed into Christmas on good form with a 1-1 draw with Liverpool last time out. But given how close the race is to the title, it seems like greater force may be required.

Among the major teams being connected to Ivan Toney is Arsenal. However, Brentford want to hang on to their best player, who may require up to £100 million.

The Gunners are also rumoured to be interested in Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez. But it appears that even he will suddenly be extremely expensive to hire.

To sign Santiago Gimenez, Arsenal was quoted £60 million.

The Feyenoord player Gimenez is in high demand in England, according to a report that appeared in The Guardian this past weekend.

According to rumours, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Chelsea are all keeping an eye on the striker come January.

Although some may have believed that joining an Eredivisie club would be significantly less expensive, it is currently estimated that he will cost over £60 million.

Gimenez has been unstoppable for the Dutch team this year, tallying 31 goals in the league alone in 2023.

He was hailed as a “fantastic” talent at Feyenoord, so it’s understandable why Arsenal likes him. However, given the cost and lack of experience in England, this is a bold step.

Arsenal may need to take a chance.

It’s undeniable that Arsenal needs a new striker. Gabriel Jesus is still playing well, but he isn’t scoring any goals. After that, Eddie Nketiah has ups and downs, and some commentators have questioned if he is the right person for the role.

Gimenez is making an impression in Holland, for sure. The Gunners could want to take a chance on Ivan Toney if he isn’t going to be available for purchase.

January is when they have to sign someone. They don’t add up at the top because they are too near to success.

Gimenez ends up being the costly risk that barely pays off to cross the finish line.
