Player’s agent tries hard to convince Wenger to sign his client.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keeping an eye on Bayer Levekusen striker Stefan Kiessling and is keen to sign the hitman in January.
The German striker has grabbed six goals in eight matches in the current campaign and is current on course for the Golden Boot award in the Bundesliga scoring charts.
The 25-year-old’s rich vein of form has put several European giants on alert, including Bayern Munich, Juventus, and AC Milan.
However, Wenger seems to be the man most eager to acquire Kiessling, according to the player’s agent.
Kiessling’s representative, Ali Bulut, said: “Stefan is becoming a big player and things are working for him at the moment.
“He is a very similar player to Rudi Voller with a bit of Oliver Bierhoff.
“Big clubs have kept looking at him since his days at Nuremburg.
“Six or seven big clubs have been in contact including England and Spain’s top clubs, plus Bayern Munich.
“For four years Arsenal tried to loan Kiessling from Nuremburg, but it wasn’t possible. Now, and in the future it might be possible.
“I think it is likely he will spend another year in Germany, but he wants to move to a big club, and after that I don’t know.” (ESPN)
So according to the in form striker’s agent Arsene Wenger has been trailing German marksman Steffan Kiessling. The Bayer Leverkusen man is the top scorer in the Bundesliga this season with six goals from eight games, a return that has taken his side to the top of the table, but is he a player that Arsenal need?
The towering frontman is decent on the deck and is now back on the fringes of a national team recall but is he likely to push ahead of those already filling the top striking spots at the Emirates? Arguably the north London club doesn’t appear to need to replace Emmauel Adebayor and have been regularly finding the net so I am not sure Kiessling’s agent is going to manage to engineer a move he would no doubt like to see his client make any time soon.
