In the midst of interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Wolfsburg, Atletico Madrid have stepped in to capture the signing of Mario Mandzukic from Bayern Munich – an outstanding piece of business on their part.

The club were in need of a major addition to replace Diego Costa and Mandzukic will add plenty of quality to Diego Simeone’s side over the coming seasons.

But it is a loss for Arsenal, who would have done well to land the Croatia international. Mandzukic is one of Europe’s best poachers and would have been an upgrade on the frustrating Olivier Giroud.

But even after the signing of Alexis Sanchez, the club will need to recruit another centre-forward, or at the very least another player able to play in one of the three forward positions.

Here’s a look at five options for Arsenal this summer.

    You forgot one really good young striker who is going to be a top player…….Alexandre Lacazette of Lyon. Perfect addition to our squad. Really mobile, technical and knows where the goal is. Newcastle are after him. Arsenal should sign him.
