Arsenal Transfer News: Wenger Linked With €8.5m Argentinean Striker
Arsenal have identified Anderlecht striker Matias Suarez as a potential January signing, with Arsene Wenger lining up a move for the €8.5m rated Argentine.
Arsenal have identified Anderlecht striker Matias Suarez as a potential January signing, according to several reports.
Arsene Wenger sent scouts to watch Anderlecht’s home game against Lokern on Sunday, with many initially indicating they were there to watch long-term target Lucas Biglia. However, it became apparent the Gunners were in fact running the rule over Suarez.
Wenger has recently admitted he may need to dip into the January transfer market to strengthen his attacking options due to the departures of Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh to the African Cup of Nations, and reports claim Suarez is high on his wish-list.
The Argentine has been in good form this season scoring 14 goals in 25 matches and can play anywhere across the front line, so his versatility will appeal to Wenger. So too will his price-tag, with his contract running out in 2013 the 23-year-old will command a fee in the region of €8.5m.
