Arsenal are positioning themselves on a Ligue 1 striker


Eager to strengthen its attacking sector for next season, Arsenal is prospecting in Ligue 1 and could draw for one of the top scorers in the French championship.

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal

Corrected by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening (4-1), the Gunners continue to give ground to the Citizens, who came back to two small points with two games behind. Given the current form of Pep Guardiola’s men, who remain on 17 games without defeat in all competitions, it is hard to imagine them collapsing a few days from the end.

Despite everything, Arsenal’s season remains exceptional since the Londoners are guaranteed to finish in the Top 2 and thus return to the Champions League next year. To nurture great ambitions in the most prestigious of European competitions, the Gunners will strengthen this summer. The leaders would already have a few names on their shortlist, especially with regard to the offensive sector.

Arsenal target Openda

One of the club’s targets is named Lois Openda according to information obtained by the DailyMail. Recruited for 10 million by RC Lens from Bruges, the 23-year-old striker impresses for his first season in Ligue 1. In a well-established collective, the Belgian scored 17 goals and delivered 3 assists in all competitions with the Blood and Gold.

The fifth top scorer in Ligue 1 logically stirs up lust and Arsenal would therefore like to make him the understudy of Gabriel Jesus next season. The media reports that Aston Villa are also in the running. Openda is tied to Lens until 2027.

Even if the club and the player wish to continue their common adventure, the northerners will undoubtedly receive great offers for the native of Liège. Openda, meanwhile, could take on even more importance in Franck Haise’s team next year, but will the Lensois really refuse any approach for their striker? Answer in the next few weeks.
