Arsenal Must Pay ‘Astronomical’ Fee To Land Premier League Striker – Why They Should Splash The Cash

The first season is often the catalyst for a player in the Premier League. Should they flop, it’s likely that there will be a large chunk of people ready to bad-mouth him and question his ability to hold his own at the fast pace associated with the English top tier. Wilfried Bony has now completed his first year in the division, but his was a huge success. So much so that he is being linked with a move to Arsenal.

The Swansea forward scored 16 Premier League goals and manager Garry Monk has said it would take an astronomical fee for any club to land him.

I think the Gunners are in a position that they need to spend big.

Bony is exactly the type of player they need at the Emirates and could be worth the outlay. At 25 he is entering the peak of his career and the next few seasons are likely to follow the one just gone.

He has a reputation of shining in big games, too, which is crucial for Arsenal next year after failing against the big boys.

He’s powerful, quick across the ground and can burst through gaps at will.

I say splash the cash.
