The Gunners got so close to landing a top-four place, but ultimately had to settle for the Europa League.

Nonetheless, Arsenal were much improved in 2021-22, with most of last summer’s signings doing well.

Now, the Gunners have to not only bring in more quality, but strength in depth too.

In addition, Arsenal have a serious pressing issue in one position – centre-forward.

The Gunners offloaded Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January and didn’t bring in a replacement.

Arsenal’s remaining two senior strikers – Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah – are both out of contract in summer.

While Gabriel Jesus appears to be Arsenal’s top target, there are other centre-forwards reportedly on their radar.

Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb – via Sport Witness – has claimed that the Gunners are eyeing several Serie A players.

They name Lautaro Martinez, Tammy Abraham and Victor Osimhen before commenting on Gianluca Scamacca.

The 23-year-old Italian looks set for a move to a big club after shining for Sassuolo in the 2021-22 campaign.

Scamacca scored an impressive 16 goals in 36 Serie A appearances last term.

It was the third season in a row in which the 6ft 5in ace got into double figures for the Neroverdi.

However, Tuttomercatoweb also claims Scamacca’s future ‘seems to still be in Italy’ amid links with Italy’s top clubs.

“Many clubs interested”

Scamacca signed a new contract at the Serie A club earlier this year.

However, Fabrizio Romano claims this is to protect Sassuolo regarding one of their main assets.

Their plan is still to cash in on Scamacca, suggested the transfer expert.

“Yes, he will leave Sassuolo,” Romano said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE in April.
