Arsenal are said to have been offered MLS striker Jermain Defoe on a temporary deal until January, as the former Spurs striker seeks a return to the Premier League, according to The Telegraph.
Defoe is said to be in advanced talks with previous boss Harry Redknapp´s QPR, but the player has asked his agent to sound out a move to Arsenal as his preferred destination.
JD moved to Toronto FC in January of this year, and scored 11 goals in his 16 appearances for the club. It is thought that he has not settled into the Canadian lifestyle as well as he had hoped, and is keen on a return to England.
As much as I think a two-time Spurs player is the last thing I would want to see in a Gunners shirt, his experience of the Premier League could benefit us in Olivier Giroud’s absence. He is a top finisher, but I think Wenger will overlook him. With under 5 hours left of the market, who of our realistic targets do you really want to see arrive?
