An interesting transfer rumour has emerged today to suggest that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will consider a move for Manchester United and Mexico front man Javier Hernandez after he has hinted he could leave in January if he doesn’t begin to play regularly for United.
Ahead of the clash between the two clubs this weekend, the news suggesting that The Gunners may be looking at one of the United players will certainly spice up the atmosphere that little bit more, if it wasn’t already high enough regarding the presence of Robin Van Persie.
A few days ago former Gunner Carlos Vela told the world media that Hernandez may consider leaving United this January, and the report which was posted by Sky Sports News was then retweeted by Chico’s official twitter account. It stirred up the rumours and Arsenal were linked immediately to a potential deal, but today further suggestions in the Daily Mail and Metro Sport have continued with the story.
Arsenal definitely do need another striker in the squad to either be backup or support for Olivier Giroud in the attack. Of course Hernandez wouldn’t be too happy to play back-up because that’s the reason he wants to leave Manchester United; however I think as he offers something very different to Giroud, he would definitely be a good addition and would be likely to get much more game time with the Gunners. At a relatively good price and no doubt reasonable wages, we would be getting a top class striker who is a real goal poacher in attack. The main question is, would United sell to us? I don’t think so.
