Ian Wright, a former player at Arsenal, has vehemently urged Mikel Arteta and Arsenal to spend big money on a “world-class” striker worth £125 million next summer. This plea comes after Arsenal spent more than £200 million in the previous summer’s transfer window to bolster their team. Wright thinks that obtaining this excellent striker is essential if the team is to compete in the league and pursue an unprecedented treble against teams like Pep Guardiola’s mighty Manchester City.
Arsenal is eager to strengthen their striking squad as the summer transfer window draws near, realising the need to increase their potency. The ability of current striker options like Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Jesus to successfully lead the squad has been questioned. Arsenal recently concentrated on bolstering their midfield and defence, but they now have their sights set on bolstering their attacking options.
The 18-year-old phenom from Brighton named Evan Ferguson is one of the prospective candidates on Arsenal’s radar. With impressive performances and four goals in the first few games of the season, the young Irish striker has been making waves in the Premier League. According to reports, Arsenal may be willing to offer a hefty price of £100 million to sign him during the forthcoming summer transfer window. This amount is consistent with Ferguson’s strong form and potential.
Ian Wright vehemently argued for Ferguson’s signing during a conversation on PL Productions, praising the player’s great qualities, including as his style of play, game knowledge, agility, mastery of both feet, aerial ability, and pace. Wright highlighted Ferguson’s maturity and bravery on the pitch despite his young age and envisioned him blending in with any strong Premier League squad. He is adamant that Brighton will find it harder and harder to hold onto Ferguson as his value continues to climb.
Wright emphasised Ferguson’s calm finishing and noted the rarity of finding players of his calibre in the Premier League, especially at such a young age. If the transfer happens, he expressed hope that Ferguson would join other successful Brighton transfers, such as Leandro Trossard and Ben White, in having a huge influence at Arsenal.
