Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)
The Sun recently linked Sergio Aguero with a possible Manchester City exit, and it does seem he’s no longer quite seen as the top dog at the Etihad Stadium.
The prolific Argentine has been in and out of the side since Pep Guardiola brought in Gabriel Jesus as competition up front, so could Arsenal try an audacious swoop?
There’s no doubt it would be a challenging deal, but the Gunners could benefit hugely from a proven striker of his experience and pedigree, and given his age he may be reasonably affordable.
A slightly rogue option, but Mariano has got off to a superb start at Lyon this season since arriving from Real Madrid in the summer.
The 24-year-old was brought in to replace Alexandre Lacazette as he left for Arsenal, but has out-performed the Frenchman this season with 15 goals in all competitions.
It seems only a matter of time before bigger clubs take a look at him again, so Arsenal could do well to pounce quickly if the Aubameyang deal falls through.
