The Gunners are expected to undertake a major rebuilding process in the summer with a number of exits and arrivals.
Top of their incoming list is a world-class striker, with that having been the position that many believe Arsenal have needed to improve for a number of years.
Manager Arsene Wenger is acutely aware of this and will make a move to solve the problem and is reportedly planning a shock move for a Premier League striker as the solution.
That man is Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, who the Mirror claims Arsenal will bid £30million for when the transfer window opens.
The forward’s future at Anfield is in doubt at present, as Jurgen Klopp has left him on the bench in favour of Divock Origi particularly.
That is not a situation he is likely to be happy with long term as he looks to be a regular after seemingly overcoming his injury problems.
There is a major stumbling block for the move though, as Liverpool reportedly value their man far above the £30million being allegedly offered.
