After a largely disappointing transfer window for Arsenal fans, which saw them sink a few too many pints here in the Transfer Tavern, to help cope with their disappointment of not signing a single outfield player in the summer transfer window, the rumours are already beginning to circulate.
The Telegraph this morning reports that Arsene Wenger has targeted Juventus forward Simone Zaza, and will submit a £22m bid for his services in January.
The Italian forward is said to be considering his future at the Serie A giants, after their summer signings of Mario Mandzukic and Pablo Dybala has seen him slip down the pecking order. Something which he believes could impact his chances of making the Italy squad for Euro 2016.
Arsenal were struck by the news last week that England striker Danny Welbeck will be out for several months, leaving the Gunners desperately short of options up top for the coming season and Arsenal fans hope Zaza could be the answer – however it is not quite the addition of a big star name such as Benzema or Cavani that they were linked with all summer.
