There are less than two months left until the next transfer window. Arsenal who are on top of the Premier League are looking to sign some serious competition for Giroud who is currently the only real option for Wenger as far as strikers go. Bendtner is probably going to sit on the bench for a long time considering his everlasting poor form thus making the Frenchman indispensable for the Gunners. Podolski could be an option but not a permanent one as the German international does not look very comfortable being played out of position.
Arsenal decided this year is finally going to end their trophy drought and started investing in big transfers. After reaching an agreement with Ozil who became the most expensive transfer in club history, the Gunners still look to improve. With money no longer being an issue fans are now hoping top end players will finally choose to move to North London.
Wenger targeted Higuain and Villa during the summer transfer period but filed to sign either of them. Suarez is also a name that comes up a lot when thinking about what moves may occur in January. The last player to make the French manager’s wish-list is coming from rivals Manchester United. Javier Hernandez who has been looking for a change in scenery, may end up at the Emirates Stadium, after Wenger looks determined to bring in an efficient striker with a profile similar to that of those mentioned before.
According to Metro, Hernandez is keen on finding a different team after being side-lined by Van Persie’s excellent form. Manchester also look willing to let the 25 year old go if an interesting offer may present itself. The Mexican striker is worth 7 million pounds which would not be a problem for Arsenal. The only thing standing between the Gunners and Hernandez is club rivalry. Even if Wenger was willing to let Van Persie go, it is very unlikely things will be just as easy when it comes to signing one of United’s players.
The Mexican international would be of great help for Arsenal if the transfer goes through during the winter transfer period but it does seem unlikely that David Moyes would sell Hernandez to a rival.
