Arsenal are attempting to sign a striker before Monday's transfer deadline.

Arsenal attempted to sign Susan Vlahovic from Fiorentina but he is now on the verge of going to Juventus.

Mikel Arteta ideally wants to strengthen in attack this month with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ostracised after being stripped of the captaincy following a series of disciplinary issues, while Alexandre Lacazetteand Eddie Nketiah are both likely to leave the club when their contracts expire at the end of the season.

Arsenal have been told they will have to pay Alexander Isak's €90 million release clause if they want to sign the Real Sociedad striker now.

Lille's Jonathan David is another player under consideration but the Ligue 1 club want to wait until the summer to sell him.
