Arsenal need a world-class striker to fill the gap left by Mead and Miedema

Jonas Eidevall had said before his side’s 1-1 draw with their title rivals Chelsea on Sunday that he would be “disappointed” if Arsenal could not bring in a prolific goalscorer, given the absence of Beth Mead and Vivianne Miedema for the rest of the season. “That should be a really important priority for us in this window with the number and the level of games we are playing,” the manager said.

January is midway through and although Arsenal have delved into the market more than most, signing the midfielders Victoria Pelova and Kathrine Kühl (allowing Jordan Nobbs to depart in search of regular football), recalling the Brazilian forward Gio Queiroz from Everton and adding goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo.
