Crewe realistic over signing Arsenal target Aneke

Crewe assistant manager Neil Baker says that Arsenal youngster Chuks Aneke is the League One club's main transfer target this summer. The 20-year-old striker finished this term as top scorer at the Alex, after spending a second successive season-long loan at Gresty Road.

"We'd love to sign Chuks, but we'll face real competition," Baker told BBC Radio Stoke.

"He's top of our list, but there'll be clubs at a higher level that are interested."

"Some of our loan signings did well for us last season and played their part in keeping us in the league, but Chuks did arguably more than anyone with the goals he scored," added Baker.

"He wasn't always pleasing on the eye but he gave us real power and strength.

"We have helped him as well. We have found him his ideal position and I know he enjoyed it here but he may be beyond us."
