Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano responds to latest Arsenal transfer link with Eredivisie star

Transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano has responded to Arsenal links with Ajax striker Brian Brobbey, playing down talk that the talented young Dutchman is now the Gunners’ top target

Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside for his Daily Briefing column, Romano explained that Arsenal are still exploring options up front, with no final decision made yet as we see plenty of names thrown about by various media outlets, including Benjamin Sesko, Viktor Gyokeres and Alexander Isak.

Brobbey is the latest to be talked up as a priority for Arsenal, but it seems Romano isn’t too convinced just yet, and instead mentioned that the north London giants really like Newcastle star Isak, though it won’t be easy to prise him away from the Magpies.

Brobbey transfer update and what could it mean for Kai Havertz’s role at Arsenal?
Romano also mentioned Kai Havertz’s role at Arsenal, with the journalist stating his view that he was signed because of his versatility, meaning the search for a signing up front this summer won’t necessarily be bad news for the Germany international in terms of his standing in Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Another striker making headlines at the moment is Brian Brobbey of Ajax, who is now being linked as the main candidate for Arsenal to strengthen up front this summer,” Romano said.
