Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal side have a huge few weeks ahead of them.
They currently sit fourth in the Premier League, holding the upper hand over fifth-placed Tottenham as they battle to secure a return to the Champions League.
A return to the top continental competition could be huge for the future of the Spaniard and his young side, due to the increase in revenue for transfers as well as the ability to attract high-profile players.
One priority this summer in regards to signings will be in the striker department.
With duo Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah set to leave as free agents this summer, Arteta has already opened up on the need for a new striker.
“You can play good football, but you need enough goal threat in the team. The other thing is that he has to complement the other people we have, personally and on the pitch. We need the right profile,” he said.
A number of players have been linked with the Gunners, from Dominic Calvert-Lewin to Alexander Isak.
The latest two names to join the frame are Manchester City pair Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling.
Both are valued at least at €50million by CIES football observatory, with the duo having irregular game time at the Etihad, despite their quality.
While Sterling and Jesus would certainly help improve the Arsenal squad, it remains to be seen exactly where they would fit, so with that said, here’s a look at three potential options.
With Sterling’s versatility, he could start on the right-hand side.
His pace would allow for him to be able to take players on the outside, however he may struggle to cut in more due to his weaker left foot.
Jesus has often played from the left because, much like his teammate, he can cut inside on his right foot.
The 25-year-old has scored eight goals this season and has often played on that side, despite also being able to play as a central striker.
Another option could be to play the England international on his preferred left side, allowing him to go back inside on his right foot if needed.
This is the position he has played most often for both club and country, though he would be competing with both Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe for that place.
Jesus could then assume the centre-forward role that needs filling, having recently found a knack for scoring goals there across all competitions for the Citizens.
The third option could be to play both up front alongside each other, due to their ability to be able to play that centre-forward role.
It would give Jesus the support he may lack at times with his presence, while Sterling has often played off of Harry Kane in a front two for England.
This would assume a slight formation change though, with the side so often playing a 4-2-3-1 under Arteta.
