Arsenal are plotting a shock £2m move for Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov, according to reports from The Sun.

Gunners chief Arsene Wenger has made a goal-getter his top target for this month’s transfer window after becoming aware of his squad’s lack of depth in the final third.

With Olivier Giroud having missed yesterday’s win against Cardiff and Nicklas Bendtner suffering with injury in the same clash, Lukas Podolski is the Frenchman’s only fit orthodox forward, and even he is still recovering from an absence from action.

Berbatov is seen as a viable short-term option, with the Bulgarian having announced via his agent that he is unsettled at Craven Cottage.

The ex-Manchester United man is likely to be available for a cut-price fee in the coming weeks, and would bring the experience and guile that Wenger is seeking to keep his team in the Premier league title race.

Berbatov is liable to jump at the opportunity to join the Gunners – despite having previously represented their bitter rivals Tottenham – which could open the door for a shock deal.

At 32 the forward would be a short-term option, which would allow the London club to up their pursuit of a top class marksman at the end of the season.
