According to Goal.com, Arsenal have made a £10 Million bid for Atletico Madrid forward Adrian Lopez. The classy Spain international has long been an Arsenal target.
Manager Arsene Wenger appears ready to swoop as soon as the winter transfer window opens tomorrow. Getting a player of Lopez's quality for this mooted price, would represent a steal.
The 24-year-old perfectly fits Arsenal's current formation and style of play. A quick and technically-gifted attacker, Lopez can operate anywhere along the forward line.
He has experience in the wide berths, having played on the right last season for Atletico. However, Lopez is at heart a natural striker.
This season he has been the backup for Radamel Falcao and has seen his playing time limited. However, Lopez fired 19 goals for Madrid during their last campaign.
He is a composed finisher who times and varies his movement extremely well. The ex-Deportivo star also offers the pace Arsenal need in attack.
