Arsenal and Liverpool fighting over prolific Spartak Moscow striker

The Russian League is currently in recess so the transfer window is now in earnest and the rumours are flying in thick and fast. The latest and most interesting is the news that both Arsenal and Liverpool are keen on signing the prolific Spartak Moscow striker Wellinton.

The 25 year-old Brazilian hitman has been at Spartak for five years and has been the Russian Premier League top scorer for two of those years, but he is now expected to move on to bigger and better things, with Arsenal expected to be the most likely destination as cover for Robin Van Persie.
