Arsenal fans shocked after hearing who Edu asked about

The report adds that ‘so far’ there is no official proposal from the Gunners for the player.

Costa is currently on vacation in Spain, and Corinthians and Sao Paulo have also been linked with the former Chelsea player.

Granted, Arsenal will need one new striker – if not several – this year.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future is uncertain. Meanwhile, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are out of contract this summer.

A month ago, Fabrizio Romano claimed that Arsenal plan to sign an “important” striker this year who will become their No.9 for years to come.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with Dusan Vlahovic, arguably the best young striker in Europe and one most Arsenal fans would love to have at the Emirates.

Now, the same can’t be said for Costa, who is 33 and has mixed opinions over his career, to say the least.

Arsenal will surely have learned their lesson from Willian.

Signing big names in the twilight of their careers hasn’t really worked for the Gunners in recent years.
