Arsenal closing in on Belgium Star Striker

It seems as if Gunners have finally identified their weaknesses in the squad and despite of their mandatory links to quality midfielders they are being linked to goal scorers, which is certainly a need of the hour for the North Londoners. Olivier Girould despite of having a goal or most game needs to finish chances more prolifically. Also any injury to him would mean that Gunners will be out of quality options.

To think Arsenal have to go to Bendtner for changing the game is really a concern and if they need to hit that consistency in the league run they need quality backup and may be that is why they have turned their attention towards Michy Batshuayi.

Dubbed the new Romelu Lukaku, the 20-year-old who currently plays his trait for Standard Liege, is making headlines in Belgium football and is closely being monitored by top teams across Europe. The towering striker, who has 37 goals since breaking into the first team in 2011, is just the latest of the countries brightest talents to emerge through the youth system. Hoping to follow in the footsteps of his predecessors Lukaku and Christian Benteke, Batshuayi could be on his way to the Premier League with the Gunners keen on securing a deal.

The Daily Mail reports that Gunners have decided to sign the youngster and they are keen to activate his release clause. The Player’s agent has also said that “I’m still surprised by the way Standard communicates about Michy. The situation is very simple: if a club triggers his release clause, he can start negotiating with a club”
