Arsenal Transfer Rumour Roundup. What Strikers Should They Bring?

Arsenal’s situation aggravates itself and with only 5 days to go now until the January transfer window will close, the Gunners must still transfer a striker to make sure that they will have a back-up for Robin Van Persie after Henry will leave in February.
With Walcott and Arshavin completely out of form, Wenger doesn’t really have an option other than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Chamakh and Gervinho are gone for the African Nations Cup and an injury sustained by Robin Van Persie now would be the fatal blow to an already weak Arsenal club.
The Gunners have been linked with the possible transfer of German striker Lukas Podolski earlier this year, but even though he agreed that a move to Arsenal would interest him, Wenger didn’t make a move for him yet.
Almost the same is the situation with France’s top scorer Olivier Giroud. The French international has been highly linked with a move to Arsenal or Newcastle and he stated that he’s interested in moving to the Premiership, but Newcastle’s offers have been snubbed and Arsenal haven’t made a move yet.
The third on the list, and the most recent, is Turkish striker Burak Yilmaz who has been currently linked with a move to Arsenal after he became the top scorer in the Turkish league and leads the rankings with an amazing record of 22 goals in 21 games. Tranzbonspor’s striker publically announced that he would like a move to Arsenal and that he wouldn’t move away from his club to join some other club in the Turkish league.

Arsenal Called To Action By Top Turkish Striker

Brazilian full-back Andre Santos might not remain the single player Arsenal brought in this season from Turkey for long, as Trazbonspor star Burak Yilmaz declared his interest in Arsenal publicly.

According to Turkey’s prolific striker he would only leave the home league for a transfer to a big club abroad, and a move to the Emirates Stadium would be favored by the 26-year-old attacker.

“I am a Trabzonspor player until the end of the season; if I were to move abroad I would want to move to a big club. I would accept a transfer to Arsenal,” he told Turkish State Television channel TRT1 .

Although he’s one of the most important players in the Turkish national team, that doesn’t count for much these days after they failed to qualify for the Ukrainian and Poland Euro 2012.

The in-form striker is the current top scorer in Turkey having scored a whooping 22 goals in 21 games, and even though his club is only on the 6th place in the league his top contender for the top goal scorer title only has 9 goals so far, and former Premiership star Elmander has 8.

With these stats Yilmaz might be an amazing addition to Arsenal’s attacking force which would be horribly shaken if Robin Van Persie would get injured.
