Arsene Wenger has recently revealed that he might not be signing anymore players from the current transfer market and he prefers waiting for the injured players to recover. However, reports suggest Gunners can expect one more signing. It is not known who the player is, but the players linked so far are Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Javier Hernandez and Granit Xhaka.

Despite, Aubameyang stating twice he doesn’t want to join Arsenal this January, there is news that the Premier League club can acquire the player at Dortmund’s valuation of £53.5 million. The Gabon international has publicly revealed that he does not want to leave Bundesliga club at least until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has scored a staggering number of 18 goals in the 17 appearances he has made in the Bundesliga so far this season. The striker is having an incredible season but the high price tag Dortmund has labelled the player with might finally force Arsenal to look elsewhere.

Another striker that is also on Arsenal’s radar is Mexico International, Javier Hernandez. The former Manchester United, joined Bayer Leverkusen last summer after spending a loan spell at Real Madrid. United’s manager, Louis van Gaal made it clear that there was little chance of Hernandez getting first team action, the striker therefore moved to Germany for better playing chances.

Hernandez now has 11 goals in 14 games he has played for Bayer Leverkusen this season. The player has seven goals in the last five appearances, which is incredible enough to spark interest from Liverpool too.

Liverpool’s manager Jürgen Klopp, who has his entire first choice striking line-up injured, is on the look-out for a quality player in the market and Hernandez seems to fit the bill for a place in his team. While Liverpool and Arsenal both battle it out over the Mexican striker, it is up to Hernandez himself over where his probable return to Premier League will be.
Moving to Arsenal could still mean more bench-time for the Mexican, considering Giroud and Walcott are Wenger’s first choice. Unless he changes that, Hernandez wouldn’t be too keen on moving to the Emirates, and Klopp might be able to give the 27-year-old the opportunities he needs. Hence between the two clubs, Liverpool might win the race to sign the striker.
