Premier League striker shows why Arsenal are targeting him

Premier League striker shows why Arsenal are targeting him

Aston Villa are running riot at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United with Unai Emery’s side 4-0 up at halftime and Ollie Watkins has played a huge role in that. 

The Villa striker’s shot hit the post in the build-up to the away side’s first goal, the England star scored the second and then went on to assist the third.

The 28-year-old has shown why he is a target for Arsenal and clubs from the Premier League’s Big Six with his goal as he produced a clinical finish.

Watkins is believed to be an Arsenal fan and the Gunners have been linked to the player in recent months.

Mikel Arteta requires a new number nine and the Villa star would be a great fit. However, the North London club also have other targets, which may be easier to get given that Watkins only signed a new deal at Villa Park last year.
