To wade off the pressure and push for the title this year, Wenger has set his sight on Spain international and Celta Vigo winger Manuel Agudo Duran known as Nolito and they are reportedly closing on a deal for the skilful player.
Reports according to the Daily Star claim the Gunners are offering the Eduardo Berrizo led side a swap deal that will involve Joel Campbell and a £15million for Nolito. According to reports, Wenger has sanctioned the deal and should the player agree personal terms, he will undergo a medical examination with the gunners at London Colney this week.
Arsenal have never been lacking in creativity. The bane of their football has been the low conversion rate of their attackers and Wenger is rooting for assured options up front. Arsenal are also left thin in attack with Sanchez and Welcbeck still injured.
Nolito, 29, doesn’t not only create goals for his team mates, he is also very clinical in terms of his finishing. He has scored eight goals in 15 matches this term and also has five assist in the La Liga this season.
He will provide depth and option for Wenger on the wing. Wenger has to be bullish to be able to land the impressive Spaniard as report claims Barcelona are also keen on the player.
