Reports say Arsenal ready to swoop for £32million striker

Reports today have reviled that Arsenal are looking to sign Manchester United striker Carols Tevez. Tevez is currently on a two-year loan deal at United but is reportedly close to securing a full time deal that will cost them £32million which is a lot to pay for a substitute. Wenger looks ready to try signing Tevez from United for £32million as the Argentinean international has found himself on the bench for most of the season after Dimitar Berbatov's arrival in the summer.

If Wenger wants to sign Tevez he will have to fork out £32million which would smash Arsenal's current transfer record of £11.5million which they payed for Sylvian Wiltord. Even though Manchester United are reluctant to sign Tevez I'm sure Sir Alex would defiantly be unwilling to sell such a talented player to such big rivals. Mikael Silvestre was allowed to leave Manchester United for Arsenal but the 31-year old did not look as if he had much of a career left at Old Trafford and even at that he was the first player in 20-years to make the move.

Personally I feel Tevez is a great player and would hate to see him leave Old Trafford as I am a United fan but could understand the decision by both him and Ferguson because of the situation. In other news Arsenal have also been linked to join in the battle to sign Russian play maker Arshavin and £8million rated Udinese midfielder Gokhan Inler.
