Michy Batshuayi could be the answer for Arsenal

Published 4 Comments

Arsenal currently only have one recognised striker in the form of Olivier Giroud. Arsene Wenger has resulted to trying Theo Walcott through the middle but is not really the long term solution.

Wenger also will be without Danny Welbeck for a long period of time and reinforcements are desperately needed if they are to challenge for silverware this campaign.

Many expected Arsenal to buy and buy big in the summer, but they were the only club not to add an outfield player to their first team squad.

The Gunners released their pre-tax profit figures earlier last week which now puts their cash reserve at £193.4 million, and this will only add to the frustration of the Arsenal faithful that demand squad investment.

Michy Batshuayi could be an option to reinforce the goalscoring ranks, but will not come cheap with a reported valuation of £22 million. But the money is there, and if Wenger feels that the player is good enough, he must be persuaded to spend it.

The 21-year-old Belgian striker has been at Marseille since August 2014, moving from Standard Liege for a fee around €6 million. He has scored 12 goals in 31 appearances including three goals in his first five league games this season.

Batshuayi first came to prominence with Belgian side Standard Liege with some impressive performances in the Europa League. His goals record in Belgium was impressive with him scoring 40 goals in 95 games.

The youngster is expected to become a main fixture in the national team and scored on his only appearance in Uefa Euro 16 qualifier in which Belgium ran out 5-0 winners against Cyprus.
