17 goals in 20 games: £85m striker scores again last night after being linked with a shocking £120m transfer move to Arsenal in January



A striker worth £85 million scored again last night, extending his unsubstantiated £120 million transfer to Arsenal in January. He has now scored 17 goals in 20 appearances.Discussions have persisted

regarding Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal acquiring a striker in preparation for their title challenge as the January transfer window approaches.Although many anticipate Arsenal to maintain a relatively modest profile the following month, the club could still make a move in response to ongoing circumstances.


Midway through the season, Eddie Nketiah has been linked with a departure, and should he do so, a tremendous opportunity would arise.


A limited number of individuals have been associated with the club for January or the following summer, but Viktor Gyokeres is an exception.Arsenal is reportedly very interested in the striker who only left England earlier this year for £85 million.


However, competition may be intensifying given that he has now scored 17 goals in 20 games and performed admirably for Sporting Lisbon against FC Porto last night.


The determination of whether Mikel Arteta will acquire a striker for Arsenal in January is still uncertain; however, Gyokeres may prove to be an irresistible opportunity in the end.


Arsenal is rumored to have doubts regarding the acquisition of Ivan Toney, another name that is frequently mentioned.


And despite the substantial release clause, the Swedish forward Gyokeres appears poised to join the elite of Europe.


In January, Viktor Gyokeres might be the ideal striker for Arsenal under Mikel Arteta.

Yesterday, in the aftermath of Gyokeres’ goal and assist, the Portuguese publication Record provided an analysis of his performance.


The striker was undoubtedly fearless in the top-of-the-table confrontation and played a pivotal role in the 2-0 victory.


“We’re running out of adjectives to describe the Swedish striker, who once again was decisive in the Lions’ victory yesterday by scoring a goal (another was nullified) and setting up Pote [Pedro Goncalves] to score the game-winning assist, according to his rating.His gait, the trajectory of his dashes, and the ingenious dribbles he executed consistently perplexed the Porto defense.


“He occasionally exhibited a lapse in judgment within the final third, which could have resulted in a higher score.”


One aspect that may prove particularly intriguing for Mikel Arteta is the fact that Gyokeres, who is 25 years old, is a striker who has considerable potential for further development at Arsenal.


In recent years, the Swede has experienced an enormous ascent, and Brighton Hove Albion must now lament his departure.


However, Arsenal will not be looking back and repent a summer acquisition that Alan Shearer has since praised.
