Arsenal 'interested' in £12m striker

Published Add your comment

Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega claims a number of clubs are interested in signing him this summer - with Arsenal the most high-profile name in the chasing pack.

According to The People, the 25-year-old has only one-year remaining on his contract at the DW Stadium, and could be sold for around £12 million.

And it would appear the Colombia international has no shortage of suitors, although he is happy to remain with Wigan.

"Arsenal are interested in me and this is a club I have always liked," Rodallega supposedly said.

“There are many teams interested, it’s true. Villarreal, Sevilla, Arsenal also have some interest, Everton, too.

“There is a lot of speculation but my future at this moment is at Wigan.

“I have signed for one more year in Wigan, but if the club decides on my sale that is no problem if the subject is positive for all parties.”


Whether or not Arsenal's interest in Rodallega is genuine remains to be seen, but Arsene Wenger is known to be keen to recruit some goalscoring reinforcements.

The Arsenal boss has already added Ivorian forward Gervinho to his ranks but, with Nicklas Bendtner expected to leave the Emirates Stadium, another striker is thought to be on the agenda.
