Exclusive: Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger To Monitor Three Transfer Targets At World Cup Finals

With only Olivier Giroud to pick from upfront for so much of this season, a new striker is an absolute must for Arsenal this summer if they are to sustain a stronger title challenge next year. Queens Park Rangers goal-getter Loic Remy is currently thought to be Wenger’s main target in that position, but he also looks set to renew his interest in a former target of his in Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who will be hoping to challenge Robin van Persie for a place upfront for Holland this summer.

The 30-year-old has been in prolific form for his club side Schalke this term, despite missing much of the season through injury, netting 14 goals in just 21 games to show that he remains one of the most lethal predatory finishers in the game – something Arsenal certainly lack at present.

The Gunners were known to be chasing Huntelaar for much of last year, but Wenger would like another look at the player now after his recent injury problems to assess if he is still a realistic target to come in and cope with the demands of the Premier League.
