Samuel Eto’o is keen on securing a move to Arsenal as he looks to gain some measure of revenge on Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho according to the Daily Mirror.

The 33 year old has turned down the opportunity to extend his Blues contract, angered by the comments made by the Portuguese boss in relation to his ‘real’ age and will look to seal a move to the Emirates Stadium where he will look to prove his Premier League credentials after an up and down campaign at Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger is looking to bring in two strikers this summer and with his sights firmly set on Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Morata the Arsenal manager may feel the addition of an experienced campaigner such as Eto’o could be a sensible option to consider.

Though the Cameroon international is said to have big money offers on the table from the MLS and the Middle East he wants a move to join the Gunners above all else.

This season Wenger found himself overly reliant on Olivier Giroud as his chief striking option, not least as the French boss sees both Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott as wide outlets, so no doubt moves to improve his Arsenal attack will take top priority this summer.

Eto’o netted 12 goals in all competitions in 2013/14.
