There is nothing to say that the player was thinking about Arsenal, or any club in particular for that matter, when he made these comments about a possible late move from current club Bayer Leverkusen before the summer transfer window closes in a few weeks, but with the Germans having finished third in the Bundesliga last season to guarantee a place in the Champions League, you would think that there were not many clubs around Europe that would tempt Javier Hernandez into a move.
Arsenal are in talks to sign an unknown striker according to Emanuele Giulianelli, but will turn to Alexandre Lacazette should talks fail to prove fruitful.
The journalist was the first to reveal the deal which would send Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach to North-London this summer, and he has now claimed that there is a deal in place to sign Alexandre Lacazette, despite the club holding preference in another signature.
The fact that the German Bundesliga club specifically mentioned Arsenal in their statement does suggest to me that the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a January transfer move for their former Manchester United star were close to the mark.
Are Arsenal Really Interested In This Former Man United Star? by AT
With the January transfer window just around the corner, there have been several players linked with a move to Arsenal but perhaps the latest one is the most interesting of all. According to an exclusive from the Daily Star, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is plotting a move for the former Manchester United star, Javier Hernandez.
It appears that Arsene Wenger has been told that if Arsenal were to show some transfer interest in this prolific striker then he would have very little hesitation in signing for Arsenal and coming back to the Premier League where he used to play for our big rivals Manchester United.
As the majority of us will concentrate on our family’s festivities, some of us will need to tame their craving for the latest speculation surrounding our beloved club.
