This transfer has been a long time coming. Arsenal have a pacey attack but have always lacked an out and out goalscorer to finish off the countless crosses whipped in by the Arsenal’s wingers. Arsenal’s crossing accuracy this season is only 21% which could be put down to the lack of height upfront and a proper experienced target man. Both Nketiah and Jesus are top tier strikers, they both lack the aerial and physical prowess that Toney provides, scoring 20 goals in 33 games, he looks like the perfect piece of the puzzle for Arteta’s Arsenal side.
Frenkie de Jong
Erik ten Hag’s side has had a rocky start to this season already losing five games in 12, conceding more goals (16GA) than scoring (13 GF). If you ask your local Man Utd fan where their problems are this season have come from, the majority will tell you the downfall of Casemiro has been the most influential. Oscar (20), who is a Man Utd fan said “he just hasn’t got the legs for it anymore” referring to Casemiro being past his prime. Frenkie de Jong would be the perfect holding midfielder creating one point six average key passes per game. With ten Hag being a former manager of his, the chances of signing and utilizing the player is high.
The Treble winners, the holding champions. Guardiola’s super team works like a well-oiled engine and adding any new components could only disrupt what they’ve already built.
A lot of Pochettino’s problems this season have come due to a lack of finishing in their inexperienced frontline missing 24 big chances this season, the second most in the league, 8 of these coming from their striker Nicolas Jackson. Osimhen could be the perfect solution for their finishing woes. The Nigerian goal-scoring machine already has six goals in eight games this season and had on average 0.91 goals per 90 last season. Would Chelsea break the bank again after another productive transfer window before this season?
No surprise to see a left sided central defender making the list following Micky van de Ven’s unfortunate hamstring injury. Leaving Tottenham on thin ice with no depth in that position, and the only player who could partner with Romero being Davies. Kelly is a player that Tottenham tried to sign on deadline day, but the transfer fell through. Although his stats in a weak Bournemouth side aren’t great, he is a cheap replacement who could excel on a higher level.
With the constant threat of Salah’s big money move to the Saudi’s, Liverpool lack a proper replacement, Olise would be a perfect fit in Klopp’s rejuvenated side. The young winger has the potential to reach the top and in a team of Liverpool’s calibre he would have the tools to do it.
