Arsenal are not struggling to find the back of the net this season with Manchester City the only side to have scored more goals in English football’s top flight this season.
Gabriel Jesus has been in excellent form since signing for the Gunners last summer but there’s always room to add more firepower and Mikel Arteta could look to do just that when the January transfer window opens.
According to reports in Spain, former Barcelona striker Ferran Jutglá is a player that the Premier League leaders could look to snap up at the start of 2023.
Here is what is being reported about Arsenal’s interest in the Club Brugge forward:
Who is Ferran Jutglá? Former Barcelona striker linked with Arsenal move
Ferran Jutglá is a 23-year old striker who played for Club Brugge in the Belgian top flight and the UEFA Champions League.
The Spainaird came through the youth ranks at Espanyol and played for their B side before making the switch to Barcelona in 2021.
During the 2021/22 season he played mainly for Barcelona B but did turn out for the first team on six occasions while scoring on goal.
Despite his young age and massive upside, Jutglá was allowed to leave the Nou Camp and signed for Brugge for €5 million in the summer.
Since then he has been finding the back of the net regularly for the Belgian side with eight goals in 14 games including two Champions League goals.
Although he has not earned any international recognition for Spain, the forward did feature in a friendly match for Catalonia earlier this year where he scored in a 6-0 win over Jamaica.
Arteta ‘asks management’ to sign Jutglá - player could leave for just €10 million
Per Spanish publication Todofichajes, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has ‘asked club management’ to sign Jutglá in January and that deal could be done for as little as €10 million.
That figure is said to be the ‘minnimum price’ that Brugge would demand for the forward but it is unclear whether or not that is an actual release clause for the player and it could very well be that the Belgian side could hold out for significantly more.
