Gunners to revive interest in summer transfer target.
Arsenal are said to be weighing up a loan bid for out-of-favour Atletico Madrid forward Alessio Cerci this January, according to talkSPORT.
The Gunners are keen to enhance their attack this winter after finding themselves overly reliant on the form of £35m summer signing Alexis Sanchez so far this season, and Cerci is back on Arsene Wenger’s radar.
The Italian international was first linked with Arsenal in the summer whilst still with Torino, but he instead made the move to Spanish champions Atletico, where he has since struggled to make an impression.
The 27-year-old may now be available on loan for the second half of this season, in what would be a smart move by Arsenal in the transfer market as they aim to strengthen on the cheap.
Cerci can either operate out wide or upfront and looks a player who could cut it at a big club if given more playing time, which may be more likely at the Emirates Stadium.
