The latest development in Arsenal’s rumour mill is that they are interesting in former Manchester United striker, Javier Hernandez, who currently plays for Bayer Leverkusen. The Mexican starlet left for Germany to get more first team chances. He has been having a tremendous season so far scoring ten goals in his 13 league appearances. His total number of goals tallies to 18 in all competitions for the club.
The 27 year old is quick on his feet, has powerful strike, and an impressive pace. He impressed in what little field action he received at Old Trafford but never received the attention he deserved. He therefore moved to Germany and doesn’t seem to regret his choice so far. However, a genuine interest from Arsenal might lure him back to England.
Arsene Wenger has expressed his desire to be active in the upcoming January market. He admits there is a need for additions when it comes to holding midfield. “We are not the only ones who can decide about the speed of the transfers,” he said.
“We have to adapt to the availabilities and the speed of negotiations and the willingness of clubs to sell. We are open to do something because we are short. We are open-minded.”
Arsenal face Manchester City in the upcoming Premier league game week. While Wenger admits it is a tough fixture he states that it does not decide the title race. Wenger said, “No, we are in December, we are not fighting for the Premier League on Monday night.”
“What you look at is of course to nullify the individual quality they have offensively, that will be vital for us to find a good balance between defending well as a team and expressing our way to go forward. But you cannot ignore the individual quality they have up front.”
“If we win, it will boost our chances of course to go to the top. It is a massive game and when you play at home you want to win because we ambitious and we feel over Christmas we play many home games and our strength and we have the chance to come out in a strong position after Christmas.”
