Who Could Replace Aubameyang at Arsenal?

Jacob Walstow

Alexander Isak

Many of you may not have known the Swedish international before this year’s Euros, but after getting out of a group including Spain and Poland, getting seven out of the nine points available, Isak was poignant in helping hold up and create chances as Sweden got knocked out of the last 16 against Ukraine. T

Off the back of this, the Swede has topped off a strong start to his international career, scoring eight goals in 31 games so far for his country. His domestic form has proved to be even more impressive, with the majority of his career so far coming in Spain with Real Sociedad.

Having nine-goal involvements in 21 games so far this season, Isak is certainly showing he’s not a one-season wonder, after 19 goal involvements in 34 league games last season helped Soceidad to a fifth-placed finish.

Isak is fast, athletic, and has a natural eye for goal and ability to link up with those around him very well; something Arsenal always look at. It would be a fantastic signing, but at 21 with a background with Borussia Dortmund too, it wouldn't come cheap.

Chance of transfer: 5/10

Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Evertonians may not want to think about this one for too long but Arsenal chief executive Edu has apparently been an admirer of the England International for a long time. And, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin returning from injury, January might be the time to land the Yorkshireman.

Starting the season strong, Calvert-Lewin bagged three goals in as many games before a broken toe suffered in the 2-0 win against Brighton keeping Everton’s number nine out for three months. This came on the back of his strongest season yet, where he had 26 goal involvements in 39 games as Everton finished 10th.

This transformation came under the stewardship of former Toffees manager, Carlo Ancelotti, who encouraged the England man to strike more with his first touch. This has paid suit, with 20 of his 24 goals since the start of last season coming from his first touch.

He's incredible in the air, already got a strong record in the past year in the league, and at 24, it would be a great signing. However, given how it would be a domestic transfer, it'd be a pricey one too, something that tends to put the Arsenal board off.

Chance of transfer: 6/10

Dusan Vlahovic

The name of arguably the most in-demand striker in Europe right now, the Fiorentina striker would prove a real coup if Arteta and Arsenal were able to convince the Serbian to come to north London. Whilst Fiorentina would demand a fee of almost £70m, the stats show that he could be one of Arsenal’s greatest investments.

Aged just 21, the Serbian international has shown that he can have an involvement in every game that he plays in. This is shown by his domestic form so far this season, with 21 games heralding 21 goal involvements to help Fiorentina have their best start to a season in six years as they fight for a place in Europe.

His four goals in the latest World Cup qualifying campaign also helped Serbia top their group, ahead of Portugal, and qualify for Qatar. Known for his speed and being able to run through defences at their peril, the arrival of Vlahovic at the Emirates would be a dream to Arsenal fans after the Aubameyang nightmare.

He has, however, apparently already turned them down according to Fabrizio Romano, and Arsenal do struggle to bring in the big names these days and it's unlikely we see him go to the Emirates as a result.

Chance of transfer: near enough impossible to see

Patrik Schick

Patrik Schick's 2021 has been incredible after scoring the joint-most goals at Euro 2020, to now being Robert Lewandowski's closest rival in the Bundesliga goalscoring charts, netting more than Erling Haaland in the process.

The Bayer Leverkusen man finished with five goals in five games as the Czech Republic eventually lost to Denmark in Baku and now, Schick could be the answer for Mikel Arteta as a replacement for Aubameyang, but they will face great competition.

His best domestic season has followed with a remarkable start to the Bundesliga campaign, with 19 goal involvements in just 19 games, with only Robert Lewandowski scoring more than his 16 goals so far this season (19).

Though Leverkusen will want the Czech to help fire them back to the Champions League, Arsenal could make a statement by bringing the star to the Premier League, where his strength and hold-up play would strike fear into any defence.

Chance of transfer: 3/10

Youssef En-Nesyri

Youssef En-Nesyri is one of the hottest prospects in La Liga these days and at 24 years old, he is both experienced and set to get even better as the years go on. He remains a man of great discussion and clubs all across Europe seem to seek his signature and now looks like the time for him to depart Sevilla.

The striker currently boasts only 25 goals in 63 games for Sevilla in La Liga, but with 18 coming in 38 games last season and a hand in the Europa League triumph the season prior, he clearly has what it takes. On the other hand, you perhaps have to take it with a pinch of salt, given this is at Sevilla.

According to reports, he remains on Arsenal's radar and at 24, he should be looked at as an alternative to those above.

Chance of transfer: 7/10
