Arsenal have reportedly enquired about Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno over the possibility of signing him.
Securing Champions League spot has become an uphill task and there is so much uncertainty surrounding the long-term futures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
The Gabon striker, in particular, has been heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United all credited with an interest.
Aubameyang will soon enter the final year of his contract at the Emirates and, him being a little over 30, he must consider the last big move of his career.
And now the Daily Mirror are reporting that Mikel Arteta’s side have ‘asked’ about Valencia striker Moreno ‘as they brace themselves for a striker shake-up in the summer’.
Moreno ‘is a target’ for the north London club with Valencia owner Peter Lim willing to let him go as he prepares ‘for changes’ at the Spanish club.
The Spain international has a release clause of £110m at the Mestalla although Valencia’s asking price is likely to be between ‘£45m and £50m plus extras’.
