Arsene Wenger is apparently looking to bolster his attacking options after loaning out Marouane Chamakh to West Ham until the end of the season.
A number of strikers had been linked with a move to The Emirates this month, but they have either moved elsewhere or committed their future to their current club.
Villa has been tipped to make a move to the Premier League after falling out-of-favour at Barca. However, the Spanish club’s president Sandro Rosell insists the 31-year-old forward will not be leaving the Nou Camp anytime soon:
‘I completely rule out the transfer of Villa during the winter market.
‘He is ours and we need him. There is a lot of the season left.’
There you have it – another player Arsenal have missed out on.
We didn’t even bother with Demba Ba (for some strange reason). Klaas-Jan Huntelaar chose to stay with Schalke rather than join us, while Wenger is unwilling to fork out £14 million for Adrian Lopez. It’s a joke! And I can’t really pinpoint any other strikers out there which are available at the moment.
Prepare to see yet another very un-active January Gooners.
