Swiss Striker Close to Arsenal Switch.

Recent speculations from Germany are claiming Arsene Wenger has completed the signing of a striker, Josip Drmic.

It was Lothar Matthaus who was a former skipper in the German national team who revealed this in a chat with Skysports Germany. He said the Nurnberg star's wife is currently looking for an apartment in London ahead of his partner's move to the Emirates Stadium.

“Arsenal are believed to be interested in Drmić,” Matthaus said on German television while working as a pundit.

“Drmic has signed a contract with Arsenal. I know that his wife is already looking for a flat in London. I assume that while he is at Nurnberg he will still play well this season to the end and then Nurnberg will sell for a good profit.”

In contrast to this, some newspapers have stated a deal is near but not yet finalised. Reacting to the news the 21 year old Swiss international denied claims his wife was house-hunting but still went on to confirm his possible move to Arsenal.

“Right now I’m single. There is also no-one who is in London looking for a home.”

Josip went on to declare his desire to be a part of Arsene Wenger's Red and White Army.

“Every boy’s dream is to go to Arsenal.”

The point of worry now would be if the striker who has bagged 15 goals for his side this season would be coming straight into the first team or be on a long-term plan. Many fans will surely frown at his signing because he is not what they are expecting to see. An already established and deadly forward is what Arsenal fans are hoping for and not one who will only be used for FA Cup or Capital One Cup ties.

Over to you dear reader. Do you think this guy can solve Arsenal's goalscoring woes? I reserve my comment as I have never seen him playing before. In fact this is my first time of seeing his name.
