Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.
Arsenal proposed move to sign former Manchester United striker; Javier Hernandez Chicharito from Bayer Leverkusen has been shrugged off by the German side chief sporting executive Rudi Voller, according to reports in the Daily Express.
The Gunners were planning to bring the Mexican striker who left Manchester United in the summer when he was seen as surplus to requirement by United coach Louis Van Gaal back to the Premier league to boost their title charge.
Hernandez has been in superb form since quitting Old Trafford and joining Bayer Leverkusen; scoring 19 goals in 22 appearances in the first half of the 2015/16 season, which has led to the Gunners sniffing around for his services.
But Voller has defiantly claimed that Hernandez will not be sold, not to the Gunners or to any other team as he is seen as a key component of the team this season. Arsenal has previously been linked to Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, Paris St. Germain’s Edinson Cavani and Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang in recent times.
Olivier Giroud is the only out-in-out striker at the Emirates at the moment with Theo Walcott being used as a striker when it is necessary. Former Manchester United striker, Danny Welbeck is still out injured but would still be back in the reckoning; as Mesut Ozil and many of the other Arsenal players have been helping with the goal scoring responsibility, just like Laurent Koscieny popped up with the solitary strike to defeat Newcastle at the weekend.
