Arsenal must grant Mikel Arteta transfer wish to reach next level as top-four spot beckons

Lacazette has scored just twice in his last 10 appearances, slotting in to a more supportive striker role with seven assists for his team-mates in that time. But if Arsenal are serious about catching the top three and making the most of their first potential Champions League appearance in five years, they need a top striker.

The 39-year-old already spent £150million in the summer on six new signings. But Arsenal chiefs will surely feel more inclined to hand funds to Arteta to spend if they can see the team is heading in the right direction. And securing a top-four spot, when they have finished eighth in each of the last two Premier League campaigns, is proof of his stellar work with the squad.

A deal for Isak could be revived this summer, particularly if the Swede’s club fail to make the Champions League in Spain. Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Lille star Jonathan David have also been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.

While Manchester United prepare to enter a period of transition and Antonio Conte’s future looking uncertain at Tottenham, it is the perfect time for Arsenal to invest to close the gap on top three clubs. But Arteta can only do that with the right tools and a striker to unlock their full potential.
