After witnessing more and more problems in the final third against Udinese, two strikers are today linked with a possible move to Arsenal.
According to Metro, West Bromwich Albion’s Peter Odemwingie is ready to leave the Baggies if a “top club” makes an approach. The Nigeria International was heavily linked with a move to the Emirates last month and with Marouane Chamakh clearly not the answer for when Robin van Persie is not available, a striker is a must if we are to be competitive this season.
In other news, Eurosport reports that Lille striker Moussa Sow wants wants to leave the Ligue 1 champions for Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal. The French-born Senegalese striker said, “I want to play at Arsenal, I think my game is best-suited to the Premier League. It is my dream and I want to be playing Champions League football.”
And before moving on to today’s poll, a look at yesterday’s results in which we collected more than 2,000 votes and with Liverpool’s Joe Cole getting a high number of negative votes from our readers and with Eljero Elia enjoying more than 800 positive replies.
