Arsenal are reportedly leading the chase for Viktor Gyokeres ahead of a big summer move for the prolific Swede.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport via Sport Witness, Arsenal are leading the chase for Viktor Gyokeres, with the report mentioning several other sides, including AC Milan. However, they concede that the Rosoneri cannot compete with the financial might of the Gunners for the prolific 36-goal star Swede.

Arsenal leading Viktor Gyokeres chase

Going by the persistent reporting linking Arsenal with a move for Victor Gyokeres, the north Londoners are taking their striker hunt rather seriously. The prolific 36-goal star Swede has made his mark with a remarkable season with Sporting CP, which has since attracted interest from the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta had expressed his desire to bring a traditional No.9 after seeing the success achieved by rivals Manchester City after signing Erling Haaland last season. However, the Gunners have proved doubters wrong who suggested they needed a striker of the Norwegian’s profile to achieve success, as Arsenal are currently the league’s highest scorer.

Arsenal have made fresh checks on Gyokeres recently, with the 36-goal star Swedish striker appearing as their priority target ahead of other names. He can bring everyone into the game and score massive goals for Sporting CP this season.

There are suggestions that Arsenal might pay up his €100 million release clause, although there are those who doubt that owing to FFP and PSR regulations. Moreover, some believe the Gunners will only splash so much on a single player again, considering they need a new goalkeeper, wide forward and midfielder in the upcoming summer window.

Arsenal faces competition for Gyokeres

The report widely discusses AC Milan’s interest, insisting that Sporting Cp might also consider selling Gyokeres for €50 million. Entirely why they would give a 50% discount on one of the most lethal strikers this season remains a baffling question, although the crux of the story points to how Milan may not be able to compete with the financial power of the Gunners.

Chelsea are also keen on Gyokeres, although the Blues are playing a dangerous financial game and could face problems with FFP and PSR. Hence, any move to Stamford Bridge can cast some serious doubts, which may pave the way for Arsenal to make their move for the 36-goal star.
