Strikers - who’s in, who’s out @ Arsenal FC?

Gabriel Jesus (2027)
The best news of the summer was the signing of the Brazil international from Manchester City.

The 25-year-old is industrious and is able to link up the play, as well as score goals, particularly at the far post.

Big things are expected of the £45m acquisition, who scored twice in the pre-season match at Nurnberg and turned the game on its head.
Verdict: STAY

Eddie Nketiah (2027)
I've had my doubt about the 23-year-old in the past, but his performances at the end of last season fully merited a new contract.

Many people say he can't score 20 Premier League goals next season, but only a fool would bet against him.
Verdict: STAY

Folarin Balogun (2025)
After being involved in the debacle at Brentford on the opening day of last season, it seemed like a long season for the 21-year-old.

In the end, he was loaned out to Middlesbrough in the Championship, but could only manage 3 goals. Come to think of it, Nketiah only scored the same amount at Leeds, so there's hope for Balogun yet!

Nevertheless, I expect he will be loaned out again, possibly in January rather than in this transfer window.
Verdict: Go
