It seems that Arsene is about to say goodbye to wantaway striker Emmanuel Adebayor but is he about to say hello to his replacement?
Arsenal could be placed on red-alert by the news that Holland striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar has failed to agree a new contract with Ajax.
The Gunners may turn their attentions to the highly-rated frontman if they lose leading striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who could still yet join AC Milan.
Ajax technical director Danny Blind has revealed they are struggling to hold onto the 24-year-old Dutch international, who has a very impressive scoring record for both club and country.

Whilst Emmanuel had a great season last term he also does have his limitations, he does appear to find it hard to find the net when the team are in a slump and clearly he has benefited a great deal from the exquisite service he has received from his Arsenal teammates. I would suggest that £19m rated Huntelaar is on paper a better striker who is no doubt very much hoping to prove to many that his amazing strike record in Holland isn’t down to the lesser opposition, how knows maybe he could be Gunners answer to Man United’s old horseface? Will Arsenal fans be glad to see the back of Ade? And could this Dutch Master more than make up for his potential departure?
