According to the Metro, Arsenal have entered the race to sign Boca Juniors striker Jonathan Calleri when the transfer market re-opens in January. They will face competition for the player’s signature from Parlemo and Napoli who are equally keen on the player’s signature.
The recent form of Giroud has seen Wenger converted Walcott to a striker and the injury of Danny Welbeck has further weakened the attacker of the Gunners with Welbeck ruled out of action for about three months.
Nonetheless, Arsenal are now in contention to sign the 21-year-old Argentina international, according to Spanish Outlet Fichajes – it is understood that the player is keen on switching his football destination to Europe.
The 21-year-old Boca Junior forward was brought to prominence around the world after scoring an incredible rabona goal against Quilmes during the summer. The player has since remained in lethal form for club and Wenger will attempt to lure him to the Emirates in January.
The Gunners have managed to gulp just 10 points out of a possible 18 and most of their failings this season has been attributed by their wastefulness in front of goal.
During the summer, Wenger attempted to bolster his attack with Benzema but the French forward opted to remain with the Los Blancos.
