‘Best Laca replacement’: Some Arsenal fans react as Luis Suarez-like striker reportedly up for sale

A number of Arsenal fans have given their thoughts on the Marca report claiming Real Madrid are listening to offers for reported Gunners target Luka Jovic.

The 22-year-old was one of Real’s marquee signings last summer and joined the Bernabeu amid much fanfare.

However, the Serbia international has endured a disappointing debut season in the Spanish capital, scoring just twice in 25 games in all competitions.

Marca now claims that, while Real initially planned to send Jovic out on loan, they are now listening to offers for the player and not ruling any options out.

As reported in The Sun in June, Arsenal have apparenly been monitoring the 6ft forward’s situation at the Bernabeu.

The Gunners could be facing potential striker problems of their own in the shape of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette’s somewhat uncertain futures.

Therefore, Jovic – who has been compared to Luis Suarez by Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic – could be an interesting option for Mikel Arteta if one of his two current sharpshooters ends up leaving.

 

But what have Arsenal fans made of the speculation? Below is some of the social media reaction to the report:
