Arsenal to bid £18m for ‘amazing’ player: Would be a great signing!

Posted by

Arsene Wenger gets ready to splash the cash and looks keen on this lethal finisher as Arsenal prepare for life without Adebayor.

Arsenal are ready to launch an £18million bid for Dutch goal ace Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is lining up the prolific Ajax striker as a replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor — if the £30m-rated Togo hitman is sold to Barcelona.
The double deal would net the Gunners a £12m profit.
A Dutch insider revealed: “Arsenal are keen on Huntelaar and he has confirmed he would be keen to discuss a move.
“Klaas-Jan is an out and out goalscorer – just the sort Arsenal have needed for many seasons.
“He might not have the silky skills you associate with a Wenger team but he has an amazing knack for putting the ball in the net.”

Whilst the Dutch insider quoted above may feel that Klaas doesn’t exactly fit the pre-requisite of an Arsenal man I would say that to me the Ajax man seems to be a perfect fit for the north London club. Wenger is keen to find a lethal finisher, Eduardo is a fantastic player but is of course on the road to recovery after being mauled by a Birmingham City thug, therefore Huntelaar could well be the kind of striker the Gunners really need. Could he play alongside the Cro-zillian? It could well be a fantastic partnership and if they can sign the 24 year old with the cash from a potential Adebayor sale and still have cash left then that makes real business sense. Do Arsenal fans feel this Dutch international has what it takes to be a 20 goal a season man in the Premier League?
