Transfer of £30m Arsenal target collapsed, door open for Edu – our view

Even with Eddie Neketia getting the number 14 shirt and signing a new contract at Arsenal, Edu and Mikel Arteta will need a lot of firepower this summer.

The Gunners will return to the Europa League next season and with Nicetta being their only senior striker, Arteta will need at least two more strikers.

Speculation is rife that Arsenal will overtake Tottenham Hotspur for the £50m signing of Gabriel Jesus.

But is this enough? Considering that he only scored eight Premier League goals in 28 appearances last season, probably not.

Hugo Ekitic is the man the people of North London previously attached to the window and may, perhaps, have the door open back for Edu to get to him.

Newcastle-based The Chronicle reported Arsenal’s interest this summer, but the player appeared to be joining Eddie Howe’s outfit at St James’s Park for a long time.

However, 90 MIn reported this morning that the £30million transfer to Tyneside has now collapsed and could, in theory, allow Arsenal to return to the race.

The Gunners and Newcastle seem to have been two of the clubs most associated with the 19-year-old Reims shooter – compared to Kylian Mbappe – before the Magpies stole a march on their London counterparts.

But with Howe’s troops now running, it makes sense for Arsenal – if they’re really interested – to step up their efforts from here.

Nketiah and Jesus are not enough.

Edu needs to sign another number nine for Arteta this summer and maybe he can still be the teenage prodigy.
