Even with three forwards currently out on loan at various clubs, the Arsenal boss is still not short of options for his front line, but that does not mean that the Gunners will not be looking to strengthen our striking options when the summer transfer window opens.
It remains to be seen what Arsene Wenger is going to do with the on loan Lukas Podolski, Yaya Sanogo and Joel Campbell but I very much doubt that the German World Cup winner will be part of his Arsenal team next season.
One player who might though, according to a report in The Mirror, is the AC Milan star Stephan El Shaarawy. The 22-year old forward has had a disappointing season in Italy, with injury and lack of opportunities under the manager Pippo Inzaghi leaving him frustrated and with just a single goal.
But he was one of the hottest properties in Europe before this year and Wenger seems to feel that he can bring the best out of him in the Premier League, as El Shaarawy confirmed that the Gunners have expressed interest in him.
The Italy international said, “I am gratified by Arsenal’s interest, certainly, but my objective is to come back for Milan and do well at Milan.
“I am recovering well, later this week I should be removing the cast and then the rehabilitation process can begin.”
Could a good end to the season could see Wenger trying to sign the young player for Arsenal?
