And according to The Metro there could be one on the way pretty soon, after the Gunners were given the news they have been waiting for, with Real Madrid confirming that Alvaro Morata will leave the club this summer.
Arsenal, along with Juventus have been linked with Morata for almost 12 months, with German club Wolfsburg also rumoured to be keeping an eye on developments in Spain.
The 21-year-old has grown frustrated at his lack of game-time in Madrid and it now appears the youngster will leave in the search for regular first team football.
Arsene Wenger is looking for strikers to help support Olivier Giroud after their pursuit of the title faded away last season.
But the deal is unlikely to be as easy as it seems, with Real Madrid still insisting on a sell-on clause in the Spaniard’s contact.
Arsenal fans, is Morata the answer to your problems or is there better, more experienced options out there? Let us know your thoughts below.
