Should Arsenal target Romelu Lukaku?

Arsenal appear to have put a striker at the very top of their summer wishlist, after already being linked with Jamie Vardy and Edinson Cavani. It looks like Vardy will reject the Gunners in favour of staying at Leicester City, but fresh transfer speculation links Arsene Wenger's men with a move for Romelu Lukaku.
