Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.
Nigerian striker Austin Amutu believes he will be joining the gunners in the near future according to reports.
The former Warri Wolves striker who currently plies his trade for Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona in Israel claims that Arsene Wenger has been a fan of his for a long time and is planning to get him to the Emirates as soon as he can.
Amutu claims that the Frenchman has been tracking his progress so far and has recommended him to French Side Angers, probably to increase his experience before bringing him to Arsenal.
The life-long Arsenal fan spoke to AfricanFootball.com about his dream of playing for Arsenal “It has been my dream to play for Arsenal, they came for my while I was at Warri Wolves and I think it was money that truncated the whole thing,’ the 22-year-old said
‘By now I should be playing for Arsenal or any team in England.
‘I am happy that a coach like Wenger has interest in me for long, still keeps his eyes on me and has not lost interest.
‘I believe I am not far away from my dream of playing for Arsenal. He recommended me to Angers. The French team watched me score in Toto Cup semi-finals.’
