It appears that the deal is already done between Arsenal and the player that Arsene Wenger thinks is the right man to boost the Gunners up front, so all us Arsenal fans are waiting for is 2016 and the opening of the January transfer window. Yeah right I will be believe it when I see it.
The player in question, according to a Metro report, is the Dinamo Moscow and Russia international star Aleksandr Kokorin. The 24-year old has 10 international goals, including three from eight in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and Kokorin has scored at least that many in each of his previous three seasons and was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in the summer.
Now his club have little option, though, as his current contract expires at the end of this season. So they can accept a cut price bid from Arsenal in January or they can see him leave for nothing next summer. Either way Arsene Wenger will be able to hold talks with the young striker and seal his transfer and I am sure that the Arsenal boss will be pushing to get him in January, especially as he is not cup tied and could help us in our Champions League campaign as well as the Premier League title chase.
