Arsene WengerFernando Llorente and Andre Pierre Gignac are the two latest strikers to be linked with a move to Arsenal this summer.

Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen to bolster his striking options and has targeted the duo, who play for Juventus and Marseille respectively.

Llorente, 29, still has over two years left to run on his existing deal at the Serie A club, but the Spanish international could be moved on by Juve having fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Alvaro Morata over the summer.

Should Juve choose to offload Llorente at the end of the season then they would demand a fee of around £16 million for the 6’5’’ forward.

As for Gignac, who is reportedly wanted by Liverpool and West Ham, the 29-year-old is out of contract in the summer and Arsenal can snap him up for nothing.

It is unknown whether Wenger will improve his attacking options at the end of the season as he has the likes of Theo Walott, Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez who can all play the centre-forward role.

But if Wenger does decide to sign a new striker this summer, should Gignac or Llorente be on his list?
