Arsenal Learn Asking Price for 25-goal La Liga Star with Individual Award This Season

According to Diari de Girona via Sport Witness, Arsenal will need to pay between €40-50 million to acquire La Liga Golden Boot winner Artem Dovbyk.

The Girona striker has a release clause within this price range, and the Spanish club are unlikely to let the Ukrainian depart for less.

Artem Dovbyk has had an exceptional season, scoring 25 goals to win the La Liga Golden Boot in his debut season in the league.

He joined Girona last summer for €7.5 million from SK Dnipro-1 and has thrived, significantly contributing to Girona’s successful season in Spain.

This impressive performance has attracted considerable interest from top clubs. Chelsea are considering a move for Dovbyk as they seek a high-caliber striker, though he might not be their primary target for the next season.

Arsenal are also interested in Dovbyk, with Mikel Arteta expanding his search for the right forward to enhance his squad ahead of the new season.

The Gunners’ interest is recognised in Spain, and Girona are prepared to demand at least €40-50 million for the striker, in line with his release clause.

Given Dovbyk’s stellar performance for Girona last season, the club is willing to sell him for the stipulated price and not for less.

The report suggests that while Girona may not strictly insist on the full release clause amount, they are open to considering offers close to that figure.

Dovbyk might have come under consideration after Arsenal failed to sign Benjamin Sesko. The Slovenian chose to extend his contract with RB Leipzig for another year, rendering the previous release clause irrelevant and ensuring his stay at the club for at least another season.

Arsenal may have explored other options to bolster their frontline. However, it’s unclear if they are specifically targeting an out-and-out striker to enhance their attack.

A wide forward is urgently needed to provide cover for Bukayo Saka, which might be their focus this transfer window, rather than investing heavily in strikers who may not be high on their priority list.
