When you hear that Arsenal are one of the clubs linked with a striker that scored more goals in the group stages of the Champions League last season than any other player, with a stunning nine goals from just six games, most Arsenal fans would start rubbing their hands together with anticipation.
When you hear that the player in question is the Shaktar Donetsk and Brazil international forward Luiz Adriano, however, that anticipation might well start to dwindle away or disappear altogether. And when I tell you that the report in the Daily Express linking him with the Gunners reveals that Shaktar are looking for just £5.5 million, then the smell of rat starts to make itself felt in your nostrils.
But maybe we should not be so hasty to dismiss this Arsenal transfer rumour. A big reason for the Brazilian striker being so cheap is that his current contract is due to run out in January and so this is the last chance for his club to recoup and transfer fee for him.
You may think that his goal tally of just less than a goal every other league game is not all that impressive, especially in UKraine but that is over nine seasons and his first three years were relatively unproductive. His record in European competition is actually better than a goal every other game and that is pretty impressive. He scored six in the season Shaktar won the Europa League, including the opening goal in the final.
A look at his stats compared to the Arsenal strikers, compiled by Squawka.com, as well as him being a natural finisher suggests that he could offer us a good option. So at such a bargain price, should Arsenal take a risk on Luiz Adriano?
