So, over the coming weeks and months, rumors are certain to be speculating how Arsenal will be in the market for a striker. One name has already popped up-that being Adrian Lopez, with some reports saying that Wenger tried to buy the Atletico Madrid striker ahead of Giroud’s arrival in the summer..
Should Wenger go for Adrian Lopez or Fernando Llorente? by KJ
News has started to pick up on the transfer scene with Goal publishing an article that talks about strong interest from Arsenal for the services of the 24 year old Spaniard, Adrian Lopez. Generally, I’d call this unreliable but many of the Twitter ITKs have sworn that Arsenal are definitely interested in the Atletico Madrid striker.
My question is – do we go after Lopez or after Llorente?
There are reports this morning that Arsene Wenger has instructed his Arsenal scouts to identify a top-class striker to be brought in during the January transfer window, with Fernando Llorente, Adrián López, Robert Lewandowski and Stevan Jovetic reported to be top of his wish-list.
Although Wenger has been experimenting with different players in the centre-forward role, the Frenchman has realised that only having Olivier Giroud as his only out-and-out hitman could be a negative in the second half of the season if Arsenal are going to aim to challenge on all fronts against the much deeper squads of Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs.
