Mikel Arteta appears to have a plan on how he can fill the void left in Arsenal’s forward line following the January transfer window.

The Gunners let ex-captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave for Barcelona but failed to land their top target to replace him as Serbian forward Dusan Vlahovic opted for a move to Juventus over Arteta’s side.

But the Gunners’ recent tactical set-up in training suggests the Gunners boss could turn to a familiar face.

It comes following reports that Arsenal snubbed an offer from Paris Saint-Germain to swap Aubameyang for Mauro Icardi last month.

And Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke has spoken after his other bog sporting franchise – the LA Rams – won the NFL Super Bowl.

Icardi offer revealed

Paris Saint-Germain reportedly offered the Gunners the opportunity to swap Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Mauro Icardi during the January transfer window.

Aubameyang found himself ostracised by Gunners boss Mikel Arteta following a disciplinary breach in December which left him training alone and left out of Arsenal’s first XI.

With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah’s contracts set to expire at the end of the season, Arteta and sporting director Edu worked hard to bring in a new forward during the January transfer window – with reports now suggesting another offer was tabled which could have helped them.
