Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta seems to have added another forward to his list of players who could potentially replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in near future.

According to La Colina de Nervion, the club is keen on signing Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri, someone who has been dubbed a well-rounded striker with sublime mobility and a burst of pace.

The Moroccan star netted 24 goals in 46 appearances across all competition for Sevilla last season. In the current La Liga campaign, he has already scored twice in three games so far. As per the La Razon, Sevilla know how valuable the forward is, hence, they have risen his stocks to around £40 million.

The 24-year-old striker will fit in well at the Emirates Stadium if he replaces the 32-year-old Aubameyang. Considering that the Gunners don’t think twice about splashing the cash for the players Arteta really wants in the squad (£50 million for Ben White), paying £40 million for the Sevilla ace shouldn’t trouble the Premier League giants.

Alexander Isak is another La Liga star that the Arsenal have been eyeing for a while. The 21-year-old Real Sociedad player has been in high demand for his ample experience playing in different leagues around the world from a young age.
