Arsenal to sign top Belgian striker to replace Van Persie?

It is being widely reported this morning that Arsene Wenger is looking to bring in yet another top striker this summer if Robin Van Persie continues to refuse to sign a contract extension.

The Mail reports that he is eyeing up the top Belgian hitman Kevin Mirallis, who was the Player-Of-The-Year as well as the League’s top scorer in Greece last season as Olympiakos won the SuperLeague and Greek Cup Double.

Despite his high rating, it seems Mirallis will be available for under 7million GBP which has led to many top European clubs sending scouts to check out his abilities, including Arsenal and Liverpool.

Arsenal’s Interest In French Top Scorer Is Rejected

Olivier Giroud became one of the most wanted players in Europe after he managed to take his club Montpellier on the first position in France with his extraordinary sense for goal.

The Frenchman already gathered 12 goals so far this season for Montpellier, and he managed to attract the scouting eyes of Newcastle and Arsenal. Despite interest from big clubs, Montpellier’s chairman Louis Nicollin snubbed rumours of a possible transfer.

“It is very clear, no player we want to keep will leave during the winter transfer window,” said Nicollin.
