Mikel Arteta's side could potentially find themselves lacking in attacking areas in the very near future. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is said to be in advanced talks with Barcelona over a possible loan deal until the end of the season.
And in recent days, out-of-contract striker Eddie Nketiah has been strongly linked with a permanent move away from Arsenal, with Crystal Palace and Newcastle interested in his signature.

Folarin Balogun has also been allowed to join Championship side Middlesbrough on loan in January, meaning Alexandre Lacazette could be the club's only recognised striker going into the second half of the campaign.
That being said, the North London club are trying to bring in reinforcements. In fact, they have already been in touch with former Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata about a potential transfer.
The reports claims that Morata 'listened with interest' when Arsenal reached out but feels there is 'no time to properly tackle' a return to London.

But back in 2018, the Spaniard criticised Conte's style of playing at Chelsea, saying he "suffered a little" because of the tactics used.
Thoughts on Arsenal's decision to try and bring Morata to North London? Do they need more attacking options?
