Confirmed Arsenal target could replace ex-United striker- reports

Published Add your comment

Wigan Athletic striker Hugo Rodallega could be targeted by Villarreal this summer, according to The Sun.

The Columbian international scored nine goals for Wigan last season, including the goal that kept The Latics in the Premier League on the final day, helping Robert Martinez's side beat the drop at the expense of Birmingham City, Blackpool and West Ham United.

His impressive form has seemingly alerted a host of European sides, with Arsenal mentioned as one of the front runners, along with La Liga side Villarreal, who are expected to lose Giuseppe Rossi to Juventus.


"I like playing and I have many teams where I could play but for now my future is with Wigan," he said. I have a year left on my contract, but I [would] go to another team if the opportunity arises, and well, I've always liked Arsenal.

"There are many teams interested, it's true. Villarreal, Sevilla, Arsenal also have [had] some interest, [so have] Everton of England, but it all is speculation."
