Adrian Lopez, dubbed the "new David Villa," remains Arsenal's top January transfer target. Fresh reports in the UK press are linking Arsenal with a winter swoop for the Atletico Madrid forward.
The Daily Mirror states that Arsene Wenger is tempted by Lopez's near-£15 million release clause. The Gunners boss is also said to be pleased by his relatively reasonable wage demands. Lopez would be an excellent capture for Arsenal in the next transfer window. He is skilful, technically-alert and a classy finisher.
His addition would give Arsenal what they need most and that is a quick and crafty striker. Wenger's style of play better suits a mobile forward who can challenge defenses with pace. Lopez fits the bill. He is a shrewd attacker who utilises an intelligent range of movement to find space in and around the box.
