£10m Arsenal strike target makes in 6 goals in 10 games

Mestalla Valencia

Arsenal linked Paco Alcacer scored again in the Europa League last night for Valencia.

Arsenal's search for a striker saw The Mirror link them to Valencia's Paco Alcacer last week.

The 20-year-old is seen as an alternative to Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid, even his reputation is not as big.

Unlike Morata however, Alcacer is playing regularly and scoring in La Liga, filling the shoes of Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado who left last summer.

While he is not scoring as prolifically just yet, for a young striker playing his first full season for the club he is making impressive progress.

Alcacer scored the winner last night for Valencia to send them into the next round in the Europa League, a 1-0 victory on the night with a header against Bulgarian side Ludogorets.

It caps an impressive run for the young Spaniard, who has now scored six goals in his last 10 games for Valencia, with two assists in there too. Overall this campaign he has 10 goals in 15 starts.

While one potential Arsenal star of the future scored in the Europa League last night, an old face from the past found the net too. 

Former Gunner Jose Reyes found the net for Sevilla in their clash against La Liga rivals Real Betis. It was only the Spaniard's second goal of the season in 21 appearances.
