Arsenal latest: Wenger to choose between three Premier League hitmen?


Arsenal could be in for a very interesting January transfer window, with Arsene Wenger reportedly set to choose between three Premier League strikers, as the Gunners look to add attacking reinforcement this winter.

According to the Sun, Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is close to joining the Gunners in a £2m deal.


The former Man Utd hit-man has only six months left on his current deal, and considering the current plight of his Fulham side, the Bulgarian reportedly wants to leave and compete at the highest level once more.

Arsenal are in something of a striker crisis at present, with Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner both sidelined with injures, leaving only Lukas Podolski as a viable option for the Premier League leaders.

The Sun claims that Berbatov would sign an initial 18 month deal, with the option of a further year.

Arsene Wenger is said to also have his eye on Newcastle striker Loic Remy.

According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, Wenger has been keeping tabs on the former Marseille striker for some time, and his mulling over whether to make a firm offer for the 27-year-old.

Remy is currently on a season long loan from QPR, and has performed well, bagging 10 goals and two assists with Newcastle.

Finally, have claimed that Wenger is also looking at the possibility of signing Manchester United outcast Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican has been used sparingly by David Moyes this season, despite injuries to both Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

We discussed the issues surrounding the diminutive hit-man last month, and why the player has not been a success at Old Trafford despite an excellent goals to minutes ratio.

It is pretty clear that Wenger is in the market for a striker, but with the three aforementioned strikers all very different in ability, it remains to be seen which would be number one on the Arsenal boss’ January agenda.

What do you think? Which of these strikers would be the best fit for Arsenal? Let me know in the comments below…

  2. Benteke must be an option, surely?
    Unless Arsene has a superstar lined up for the summer, he should be considered. He’s a good player, but I’m not sure he’d be worth what Villa are likely to demand for him, though.
    If no WC strikers are available in the window, Berbatov on loan until the summer would be a decent option.

  3. Remy is a hard worker but I fear he will be like another Gervinho. Chicarito wont be as goowd as Walcott. I will prefer a Berbatov for his skills, strength and experience. At 2m it will be money well spent. An Arsenal team will raise his motivation. He appears lost in fulham cos the midfielders there are not creative enough to get the ball to him or combine effectively with him
