If reports are to be believed, North London-based English Premier League heavyweight Arsenal are prepared to make a double swoop for Russian attacking midfielder Alan Dzagoev who is currently playing for Russian side CSKA Moscow and Mexican striker Carlos Fierro who is serving at the Primera Division de Mexico side Club Deportivo Guadalajara when the transfer window opens in summer.
According to sources, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has recently increased scouting efforts around the Mexican youngster after the club was linked a few number of times with the player. Fierro, 17, currently plays for Chivas Guadalajara which is the same club that produced players such as Carlos Vela, Javier Hernandez and Carlos Salcido.
The Gunners, if they manage to bring him to the Emirates Stadium, won't expect him to replicate what his fellow countrymen (Hernandez) did with English rivals Manchester United, but will instead look to rear him through the team's ranks, what Arsenal are actually known for doing.
Fierro was previously linked with the Gunners in 2011 but a move failed to materialize as the player was not opting to leave his parent club and training and sign with a bigger outfit. Now the player has earned comparisons with Javier Hernandez since he broke into the first team and made 20 appearances for the club this season.
Although the teenager won't cost more than $3.19 million (£2 million), the Gunners will know that their North London rivals Tottenham has also taken a liking for the player and it may not be so easy to sign the player.
Arsenal have revived their interest for Russian midfield man Alan Dzagoev who is also on the radars on Manchester United. Dzagoev, 21, has earned substantial recognition in the recent seasons from pundits all over the planet, which include Arsenal's Russian player Andrey Arshavin.
Dzagoev, despite his age, has made nearly 150 appearances for CSKA Moscow and has now become a prominent figure in the Russian national team. Wenger is mostly interested in him as he wants to fill up the gap made by the departure of the likes of Spaniard Cesc Fabregas and Frenchman Samir Nasri as soon as possible.
The Gunners are also said to have prepared a sum of $23.89 million (£15 million) for the player, according to a Footybunker report.
