Arsenal are claimed to be ready to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a two-year contract, to make the move from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
The Swedish superstar is out of contract at the end of the term, and is believed to be keen to continue playing at the top level. Zlatan is said to have turned down a highly lucrative offer to join the Chinese Super League in order to remain in Europe, and he could have a huge impact wherever he decides to play.
The 34 year-old has scored a huge 32 goals in his 27 Ligue 1 outings this season, as well as leading the assists table with 13, and can also boast an impressive 11 goals for Sweden while helping them to reach the upcoming European Championships.
Arsenal are now claimed to be ready to offer the free-scoring striker a club record £250,000 per-week wage, on a two-year deal. The current highest paid player Mesut Ozil is believed to be on £140,000 per week, although there is talk that he is set to receive an increase on his current terms.
The Gunners are not in the best situation currently, with many fans having turned on the manager in recent months, with the club’s failure to sign a single outfield player last summer blamed on their disappointing title challenge.
Arsenal brought Petr Cech into the squad from Chelsea, and despite calls for a striker to be added, none arrived. Giroud and Walcott started the season in top form, but both have struggled for much of 2016, and both are being linked with a possible exit.
A big-named striker has been on the wishlist of every Gunners fan in recent years, and Zlatan could be the ideal candidate to take the pressure off of the manager, and push us forward as we look to end our 12-year wait for another Premier League title win.
Would a deal with Zlatan take the pressure off Wenger this summer?
