Arsenal can sign their very own Erling Haaland if Edu completes £18m transfer


Arsenal enjoyed an extremely productive summer transfer window.

Technical director Edu was incredibly active, adding six first-team players to the mix whilst also offloading a number of fringe players as the likes of Willian, Matteo Guendouzi and Joe Willock all departed the Emirates Stadium.

The Brazilian transfer chief shelled out over £140million on the likes of Aaron Ramsdale, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard – all of whom are 23-years-old or under.

Despite the transfer window closing over a month ago, the Gunners continue to be linked with a plethora of attacking talent across Europe as Mikel Arteta is likely to sign a striker in the coming months given Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette both have less than 10 months to run on their current deals.

Now, the north London outfit are reportedly interested in RB Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi, a talented young centre-forward who has drawn comparisons to Borussia Dortmund frontman Erling Haaland, who previously plied his trade with the Austrian giants.

Adeyemi, who is valued at £18million on Transfermarkt, has garnered interest from Arsenal, according to The Daily Mail, who claim that the 19-year-old has also attracted attention from Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in recent weeks.

The talented youngster is already a German international, impressing head coach Hansi Flick after notching 11 goals and providing a further two assists in just 16 matches for Salzburg this term.

Learning his trade as a deputy to Arsenal club-captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be the perfect move for Adeyemi, who is a natural penalty box striker that is also comfortable pressing from the front – a quality that Arteta will be looking for in a centre-forward.
