In the last part of our squad season preview, we will focus on the forwards.

7. Natalia Pablos Sanchon

The Spanish forward is your typical goal poacher and scores on a regular basis. Such a reliable player and guarantees goals.

9. Danielle Carter

Another centre-forward who can play on the wing if needed. A strong player who can play with her back to the goal to bring other players in. She also can score goals when needed.

10. Kelly Smith

She is back to full fitness after her horrendous injury last season. She is likely to be an impact player as well as a coach. The best ever English player now in the twilight of her fantastic career.

11. Rachel Yankey

Another legend in the game whose experience is so vital in order to show the new players the Arsenal values on and off the pitch. Also likely to be an impact player on her left wing.

15. Katie McCabe

The young Irish winger will have the best teacher to learn from with Rachel Yankey, she will bring width and pace on the left wing once she is settled with the team and hopefully will have the same impact as Chioma Ubogagu had last season.

18. Chloe Kelly

The England u19 centre-forward is highly rated in the England Youth set-up and will have to fight to get minutes on the pitch this season. She can shoot with both feet and is strong and technical. She also has a strong personality that needs to be expressed in the right way.

? Asisat Oshoala

The Nigeria forward was supposed to be signed soon after her release clause was activated by the Arsenal. Her work permit has been granted as well, so her signing should be effective before the end of the transfer window on Friday.

The 21-year-old is a pacy forward who will bring a different profile to the Gunners’ attack and she can also play on the wing or in midfield if needed.

Pedro Losa has, therefore, many different tactical profiles at his disposal in the attacking positions and should be able to mix and match them against different opposition styles. The teams will certainly look to score a lot of goals in 2016.
