Arsenal target Ciprian Marica has already agreed to a move to top side, according to his club Dinamo Bucharest’s president Ionut Negoita, and it is widely understood that the club is Arsenal.
Arsenal were linked to the striker during the summer transfer window, but Arsenal had bigger options like Suarez, Rooney and Jovetic to pursue so the negotiations never began.
However, with an excellent playmaker in form of Mesut Ozil, Arsenal are now trying to sign this striker.
Marica’s agent Giovani Becali told Romanian daily Ring: “He is close to Arsenal. We’ll see this week,” earlier on last summer and now Negoita has admitted he has signed a deal, but didn’t reveal who it was.
The club president told Sports.ro: ‘’It would have been an honour for us, even for a short period if Marica could help our project. But Marica has found a team.
“He’ll sign with a top team, from what I hear, he will have a very good agreement.”
It seems a little surprising, because Olivier Giroud is in great form currently. However, it could be possible that Marica could be a part of the back-up plan.
