This current transfer window might not have any world class striker available for the Gunners to jump on to as Lewandowski also has reportedly completed a move to Borussia Dortmund’s bitter rivals Bayern Munich. If Arsenal really want to keep the momentum going in the transfer rate they need to look deep into the options available.
Dimitar Berbatov has played for Tottenham and Manchester United, both of the teams being Arsenal’s arch rivals. United bought Berbatov for 30m, although the price tag didn’t justify Berbatov’s abilities as a striker as much as United would’ve wanted them to.
Arsenal could’ve landed the Bulgarian for as low as 2m which would’ve guaranteed them goals and a quality back up for Olivier Giroud but Arsene Wenger has played down the talks to sign him.
He said, “He is not a name we have considered at the moment. We have not contacted anybody.”
The manager also indicated his wish to wait while the extent of Nicklas Bendtner’s injury is properly assessed, before deciding upon making a move for a forward target.
