Arsenal transfer news: Wenger identifies Liverpool, Barcelona target as ideal Giroud replacement

According to reports in Poland, Arsene Wenger has identified Ajax frontman Arkadiusz Milik as the ideal replacement for Olivier Giroud.

The French international has once again struggled to demonstrate that he can lead the line for genuine title contenders this season, and is coming towards the end of a disappointing campaign.

The former Montpellier Herault Sport Club frontman has managed just 12 goals in 30 Premier League appearances so far this term, and his underperformance is perhaps one of the key reasons why the Gunners sit below both Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur—each of whom have a prolific frontman to call upon—in the Premier League standings.

According to Futbol News, the Gunners are considering Ajax’s Milik, who has been monitored by both Barcelona and Liverpool, as an upgrade on Giroud.

The Poland international currently has 42 goals in 69 games over the last two season, and while he may take his time to adapt to England and translate his form in the Eredivisie to the EPL, Milik has the potential to transform the Gunners’ attacking potential.
