Arsenal are keeping tabs on at least two Super Eagles strikers ahead of the summer transfer window...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

The Gunners’ director of football, Edu Gasper, has compiled a 10-man shortlist already, according to the Daily Mirror.

And it includes the Nigerian duo of Victor Osimhen (Napoli) and Victor Boniface (Bayer Leverkusen).

Ivan Toney, Alexander Isak, and Viktor Gyokeres, Sporting CP’s goal-a-game talismans, also feature on the list.

Arsenal have scored a Premier League-best 70 goals so far.

Mikel Arteta has used Kai Havertz as a false nine, with Gabriel Jesus injured for most of the campaign.

However, Arteta will revert to a typical number nine system as of next season and Edu is narrowing down their search.

Osimhen, who is the eighth-best player in the world according to the 2023 Ballon d’Or list, fired his team to a first Scudetto in 33 years last season with 26 Serie A goals.

Although he has scored 13 goals in all competitions compared to 31 last time out, he remains one of Europe’s most desired frontmen.

Boniface has managed 16 goals this season and nine assists, but has not played since December due to a groin injury.

However, he has returned for the business end of the season, as unbeaten Leverkusen seeks to topple Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

Edu’s 10-man shortlist:

Ivan Toney, age 28, Brentford

Alexander Isak, 24, Newcastle

Viktor Gyoekeres, 25, Sporting CP

Victor Osimhen, 25, Napoli

Lois Openda, 24, RB Leipzig

Benjamin Sesko, 20, RB Leipzig

Evanilson, 24, Porto

Brian Brobbey, 22, Ajax

Santiago Gimenez, 22, Feyenoord

Victor Boniface, 23, Bayer Leverkusen
