Wigan weigh up move for Mexican striker

secciondeportiva.com.files.2009.12.Aldo-de-NigrisWe are waiting to see what business Roberto Martinez can pull off here in the Football Transfer Tavern, and Warren Haughton of talkSPORT reckons the Wigan Athletic manager may be about to pull off a major coup.

The club are understood to be weighing up a loan move for Mexican striker Aldo De Nigris.

Martinez knows goals are what is needed to help his Latics side avoid the drop once again, with his strike force of Arouna Kone, Franco Di Santo and Mauro Boselli managing a total of just ten Premier League goals between them this season.

It is thought Martinez must sell before he can buy however, and to make room for De Nigris he is set to cut his losses on Argentine forward Boselli.

The forward has failed to make any real impact at the DW Stadium since his £7 million move from Estudiantes back in 2010.

29-year-old De Nigris has won the league twice in his native Mexico with his club Monterrey, and was also on target for his club in their defeat to Chelsea at the FIFA Club World Cup in December.

It is thought the forward is keen on a move to England, and should have no issue in gaining a work permit.

Martinez knows he needs experienced players for the clubs relegation battle, and De Nigris fits that category having won 20 caps for Mexico since his debut in 2010.

De Nigris to Wigan? Rate this rumour below.
