Arsenal are preparing a big offer for Ollie Watkins

Arsenal are thinking about strengthening their attacking department in the winter transfer window.

The frequent injuries of the Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus have made coach Arteta think about the approach of another striker.

The latest name to end up on Arsenal’s list is that of Aston Villa’s English striker, Ollie Watkins.

The 27-year-old continues in good form this season as well, where in 13 official matches he has scored seven goals and assisted in four others.

Arsenal’s Spanish coach, Mikel Arteta, likes the Englishman very much and has asked the club’s leaders to approach him in January.

The Sun has reported that the Gunners are willing to spend up to 65 million euros for his approach, although such a thing seems very difficult.

Aston Villa do not consider selling the team’s star and the Gunners will find it very difficult to transfer him to London.
