The news of Berbatov’s unhappiness at Craven Cottage broke out at the tail end of 2013. His desire to quit the struggling club led to much speculation, as media drew up his possible next destination. It looks like he has made things really easy for them, as Metro now report that he has issued an indirect come-and-get-me plea to league leaders Arsenal via his official Facebook page.
The Bulgarian posted a video which had the words ‘Could fire Arsenal to the title’, with an obvious hint that he is exactly what the Gunners are looking for in the current transfer window. As we stand, Arsenal have no central strikers available to them, given the injuries to Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner in consecutive league games against Newcastle United and Cardiff City respectively.
They go into today’s crunch FA Cup clash against rivals Tottenham Hotspurs without a striker, and will be forced to play either Lukas Podolski or Theo Walcott as a makeshift central attacker. Acquisition of a front man is top priority for Arsene Wenger this January, and which could help ease the burden on Giroud and allow some rotation up front for the Gunners.
Following Berbatov’s clear and resounding message for Arsenal, do you think they will bid the £2 million required to acquire the services of the former Manchester United man?
