Arsenal lining up Mexican striker as Toney alternative?
Arsenal could make an approach to sign Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez due to the high asking price for Ivan Toney.
The Gunners currently have Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah as frontline options, but neither have been consistent enough.
They could look for an upgrade at the turn of the year. Toney has been heavily linked, but the Gunners could be priced out.
Brentford currently want at least £60 million for him, and the Gunners may not afford the fee due to potential FFP issues.
Hence, The Times claim that they could look at an alternative solution. Gimenez of Feyenoord is being closely monitored.
The 22-year-old has scored 32 goals in 52 games for the Dutch champions, but he could pursue a bigger challenge pretty soon.
Gimenez, who was linked with Manchester United over the summer, could be signed for a fee of around £30-35 million next year.
Feyenoord are open to cashing in amid their financial problems, but it is unclear whether they would consider a January exit.
