Insider claims Arsenal pondering transfer bid for former Man United star
Arsenal are pondering a transfer bid to sign Javier Hernandez from Bayer Leverkusen, according to Emanuele Giulianelli
Arsenal are weighing up a transfer bid to sign Javier Hernandez in the summer transfer window, according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.
The Gunners have been linked with a host of players in the summer transfer window but have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka, defender Rob Holding and young striker Takuma Asano.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is thought to be on the lookout for a new striker as he prepares his side for their Premier League opener against Liverpool at The Emirates next Sunday.
The north London side were criticised for failing to sustain a Premier League title challenge last season as they ended up second in the table and 10 points behind champions Leicester City.
Now, Italian reporter Giulianelli claims that former Manchester United star Hernandez is emerging as a surprise target for the Gunners, while a move for Alexandre Lacazette is looking unlikely.
