Arsene Wenger has a number of players on his list of transfer targets for Arsenal next month, and a quality striker is thought to be one of his most pressing wishes. The Gunners have been linked with a number of different strikers such as Demba Ba and Fernado Llorente or more tricky players like Adrian Lopez.
There are reports all over the papers today, declaring that the Arsenal manager has categorically stated that he will not be signing the Senegalese striker Demba Ba from Newcastle United in the January transfer window, but his words have been twisted a little.
Why I’m certain that Wenger will get a striker from Spain in January by KJ
Arsenal Transfer rumours are starting to heat up… by KJ
December is going to be a very tense month with key games that could either put us back in contention for a top 3 place or could ruin any chance of us qualifying in the Champions League. We are rumoured to be in for 5 players in January to dramatically change up our current squad. Here are my thoughts on each one:
Spain has been a happy hunting ground for the Arsenal boss recently, or at least Spanish players have. His best bys in the last two seasons have been Santi Cazorla from Malaga and Mikel Arteta from Everton. It looks like Arsene Wenger is going to try to keep the run going in January with a bid to bring Adrian Lopez from Athletico Madrid.
So, over the coming weeks and months, rumors are certain to be speculating how Arsenal will be in the market for a striker. One name has already popped up-that being Adrian Lopez, with some reports saying that Wenger tried to buy the Atletico Madrid striker ahead of Giroud’s arrival in the summer..
Should Wenger go for Adrian Lopez or Fernando Llorente? by KJ
News has started to pick up on the transfer scene with Goal publishing an article that talks about strong interest from Arsenal for the services of the 24 year old Spaniard, Adrian Lopez. Generally, I’d call this unreliable but many of the Twitter ITKs have sworn that Arsenal are definitely interested in the Atletico Madrid striker.
There are reports this morning that Arsene Wenger has instructed his Arsenal scouts to identify a top-class striker to be brought in during the January transfer window, with Fernando Llorente, Adrián López, Robert Lewandowski and Stevan Jovetic reported to be top of his wish-list.
