Emirates Stadium side set sights on three talented marksman.
A lot has been made of the apparent need to boost Arsenal’s front-line, this despite the fact that Arsenal have racked up 49 Premier League goals thus far this season, the third highest in the top tier.

There is perhaps a need to do so due to the fact that Arsene Wenger has been able to rely on a fair share of the club’s goal-scoring burden being covered by midfielders and wide attackers like Santi Cazorla and Lukas Podolski, though that said Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott have both managed to score frequently of late.
The Daily Mirror claim that having failed to convince Barcelona to sell David Villa in January Arsene Wenger will return to make another move for the Spanish international in the summer.
31 year old marksman Villa will have just a year to run on his contract come the summer and the Gunners will then have more of a chance of persuading the Catalan club to sell and are readying a £14m bid for the former Valencia striker.
Wenger is ready to offer the experienced attacker a three or four year deal and is willing to meet the player’s current wage demands, said to be in the region of £110k a week.
Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova has used David Villa fairly sparingly, opting in the main to use the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Pedro over Spain’s record international goal-scorer, this hasn’t blunted the striker’s edge though.
David Villa has still netted ten goals in all competitions despite making just 12 starts and Wenger clearly feels that despite his age the La Liga man could be a great asset to add to his Arsenal strike-force.
