Arsenal keen on Kakitani

Arsenal will face stiff competition as the attempt to secure the services of Japan striker Yoichiro Kakitani, according to the Express.

Reports in Italy have suggested that the Premier League leaders are keen on landing the Cerezo Osaka star, who has fired in seventeen goals in thrity J1 League appearances this year.

With Oivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner currently the only two fit strikers at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger looks certain to dip back into the transfer market when the window reopens in January.

Inter Milan have been tracking the 23 year old since 2007, while Galatasaray are also said to be monitoring the situation.
He made his international debut in the summer, and has three goals in five appearances under Alberton Zaccheroni.

Should he secure a move to the Emirates, he could become just the seventh Japanese player to feature in the Premier League.

One of those players – Ryo Miyaichi – made his league debut for the Gunners in last month’s 3-1 win over Stoke City.
