As Arsenal basks in the glow of a successful first half of the Premier League season, manager Mikel Arteta is eyeing strategic reinforcements to propel the Gunners to greater heights.

Last season’s title near miss fuels confidence as Arsenal tops the Premier League, validating Arteta’s formidable squad.

Buoyed by a favorable Champions League Round of 16 draw against FC Porto, North London’s optimism continues to soar

The prospect of advancing to the quarter-finals appears promising, setting the stage for a potentially historic season for the Gunners.

Arteta identified a lack of physicality as a contributing factor to Arsenal’s inability to maintain the top spot last season.

However, this concern has been addressed with the summer acquisitions of Declan Rice and former Chelsea star Kai Havertz.

A potential attacking boost for Arsenal

Now, the manager is reportedly eyeing additional firepower upfront, with Brentford striker Ivan Toney emerging as a prime target.

Toney, who served an eight-month suspension for breaching the FA’s betting regulations, impressed for Brentford last season, netting 20 Premier League goals.

While his services come at a steep price of £80 million, Arsenal, having already invested £200 million in the summer, might explore the possibility of a cut-price deal.

According to reports Arsenal have initially communicated that they are not open for business in the January transfer window.

However, industry insiders interpret this stance as a starting position rather than a definitive closure. One player who could potentially fund a move for Toney is academy graduate Eddie Nketiah.

At 24 years old, Nketiah’s potential departure would not only inject funds into Arsenal’s transfer kitty but also serve as a strategic move to adhere to Financial Fair Play regulations.

In the unpredictable world of football transfers, smart business often involves exploring creative solutions. As Arteta maneuvers through January’s transfer, Ivan Toney’s potential addition to Arsenal’s attack could be the key to league success.

As the Gunners target domestic and European success, the weeks ahead will unveil the payoff of Arsenal’s strategic approach.

Will Toney becomes the latest star to don the iconic red and white jersey at the Emirates Stadium or not? Guess we will figure that out in the next month.
