According to reports from forzaitalianfootball.com, Arsenal could pursue a transfer for Juventus striker Alessandro Matri. Manager Arsene Wenger could seek a move for the 28-year-old to help revive a floundering attack.
A powerful and active forward, Matri is quick and instinctive in the box. He is more of a natural predator than current Gunners central striker Olivier Giroud.
Arsenal lack a composed finisher to complete their often neat and incisive approach play. Matri could offer those vital qualities.
However, he would represent a risk, having fallen out of favour with the reigning Serie A champions. He was the leading scorer for The Old Lady last season.
However, Matri has fallen behind the likes of Mirko Vucinic during this campaign. That could make him available for a winter transfer.
Wenger needs help in attack. Gervinho has struggled badly and will soon be lost to the Africa Cup of Nations. Also, neither Giroud nor Lukas Podolski have completely convinced in a central role.
