Arsenal favourites to land excellent attacker ahead of Barcelona

NolitoArsenal fans are in an optimistic mood this evening after hearing some positive news regarding their January transfer plans, as it’s suggested the lead the chase for a highly-rated forward.

TalkSport, via AS, report that Arsenal are favourites to secure the services of Celta Vigo forward Nolito in January, beating Barcelona to the signature of the Spanish international.

The in-form 29-year-old is tipped to move away from his current club in January after impressing numerous potential suitors and Arsene Wenger is prepared to match the player’s £13m release clause.

Arsenal are looking for the final pieces to complete their squad as they look to emerge successful in their push for a Premier League title and a natural right-winger is top of their agenda.

Nolito fits the bill in this area, whilst he’s also capable of playing in a central-striker role; which would increase Arsenal’s strength in depth, as Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are currently Arsenal’s only options in this area whilst Danny Welbeck remains sidelined.

Fans at the bar are wary that Barcelona could still launch a late push, although the Spanish side will need to sell to buy in the New Year.

Arsenal fans, is Nolito the signing you need? Let us know in the comments below!
