According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal could make a move for highly rated striker Fernando Llorente, especially if Robin Van Persie leaves the Emirates Stadium.
Llorente has been linked with a few clubs in this summer’s transfer window, which is no surprise as he was in sensational form for Athletic Bilbao last season.
The 27-year-old found the net 28 times for the La Liga side in the previous campaign, performances that earned him a place in the Spain squad for Euro 2012.
He seems to be the kind of striker that would suit the Gunners and exactly what they are looking for.
At 6ft 5ins he can be used as a target man, however is more than capable of playing his football on the floor.
With a £28 million release clause in his contract, Llorente would not come cheap for any side and Bilbao will surly do everything they can to keep their star man.
However, should Arsene Wenger receive a big sum of money for Van Persie, then he may be happy to splash the cash on the Spaniard.
Should they not be able to secure Llorente’s services, then it is being suggested that Robert Lewandowski is next on Wenger’s list.
