Arsenal Step Up Interest In £15m Atletico striker

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to add Atletico Madrid striker Adrian Lopez to his squad in January according to the Daily Mail.

The Gunners are expected to send scouts over to Spain this weekend to watch the Spanish striker take on Real Sociedad and it is thought that £15million should be enough to lure the player and club into a deal.

Adrian has gone under the radar in the Spanish capital as team mate Radamel Falcao is taking all of the plaudits but after making two international appearances this year; not an easy feat in the Spanish squad; the 24-year-olds impact is starting to grow.

Adrian spent his best years at Deportivo La Coruna but he isn’t the out and out goalscorer that Wenger is perhaps craving after losing Robin van Persie.

With the money from the Dutchman’s sale still available, Wenger may be tempted with a more expensive deal for Fernando Llorente or Stevan Jovetic but Adrian is definitely on the Gunners’ radar.
