What should Arsenal do once Adebayor is sold ?
So the chance of Adebayor being sold to either Barca or Milan seem real right now, and at the price that the media have been talking about it would be just the right choice for Arsenal to make.
So what should we do once Adebayor has been sold ?
First of all we need to make sure we have the right striking force to compete for the on coming tournaments (mainly EPL and UCL), from what we already have in our team we know that we have some quality strikers in there with Robin Van Persie, Eduardo, Theo and Vela and a good fringe player in Bendtner. But if we are going to lose our main goal scorer of last season would it be enough ? The answer is NO. And the reason we would need another top striker is because RVP is not always fit and Eduardo will not be ready for some months. Then we would be let alone with young strikers like Theo, Bendtner and Vela which is not good enough to face our tough challenges.
So what are the best options out there to replace the Togolese man ?
The first good option would be Villa, who is a talented and clinical striker, some believe he is quite similar to Eduardo and doubt he would bring anything new to the team, but most believe he is right now one of the best in the world in his position and that Arsenal would benefit from having this great player. Villa himself made a “signing call” earlier this year by stating that he would like to play for Arsenal. In terms of price he will be out of reach for Arsenal since some big teams are after him and we know the price range those team handle (Real Madrid and alike). So his signing even though would be great is not a “real” option as it seems right now.
The second option that is being mentioned is Roque Santa Cruz who had a great season at Blackburn last season, he is tall and strong as Adebayor but seems to be a little better than Adebayor in terms of definition. In terms of price he will be closer to what AW would be willing to pay and we should not forget that AW stated earlier last season that he believed Santa Cruz would be one of the most productive signing s of last season.
Other alternatives seem vague and away like Hunterlaar, Benzema or Martins.
Therefore in my opinion we should go for Roque Santa Cruz and spend the remaining money on a CB or a DM.
