The striker Mikel Arteta requested from Arsenal

Midway through the January transfer window, Arsenal appear ready to consider all options to strengthen their squad. Reports from the British Isles suggest Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is eyeing Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke as a viable alternative if the acquisition of Ivan Toney from Brentford cannot be completed.

Arsenal have been eyeing Ivan Toney as their main target but negotiations could become complicated due to Brentford’s financial demands. But as Daily Star reports, given this situation, the Gunners have decided to come up with a plan B and Solanke is one of the names on the list of candidates.

While some may doubt whether Solanke is a world-class signing for Arsenal, his record and performances at Bournemouth speak for themselves. Since arriving at the south coast club in January 2019, Solanke has shown remarkable improvement in his game, evident in his tireless work ethic and ability to score crucial goals.

The report notes that the 26-year-old has scored a total of 65 goals and provided 28 assists in 193 appearances for the Cherries, numbers that should not be underestimated. In the current Premier League season, Solanke has continued his good performance with eight goals and one assist in 16 games, which has caught the attention of Arteta and the Arsenal management.

The striker’s priority is different, but Solanke is a good alternative

Although Ivan Toney remains a priority, there is no denying that Solanke represents a solid and valuable option for Arsenal. The club’s interest in this talented English striker shows the determination of Arteta and his team to strengthen their squad to achieve better results in the second half of the season.
