Wenger considers move for Spanish International teenager.

Arsene has admitted that with a number of attacking options severely curtailed by injuries that he may have to splash out on a striker in the up coming transfer window and now this source suggests that Wenger may opt for an ambitious move for the Barcelona teenager Bojan Krkic.
The loss of Robin Van Persie will be keenly felt at the Emirates and even though the club has a number of goal grabbing midfielders and wide men they will probably need to beef up their attack if they want to maintain their push for significant silverware this term.
The pint sized Barca man is reportedly not happy about the lack of opportunities he is getting this term and has seen fellow youngster Pedro Rodriguez push his away ahead of him in the first team picture which already includes stellar forwards such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thierry Henry and Ballon d’Or winner Leo Messi.
Pepe Guardiola will be loathed to lose such a talented player as Bojan and his valuation is already said to be around £16m, which could scare off the Gunners boss.
