Swedish striker emerges as 'legitimate' Arsenal target - reports

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are being linked with a £12 million move for Swedish striker Ola Toivonen.

The PSV Eindhoven forward was linked with a move to England in the summer, with both Liverpool and the Gunners though to be keen on bringing the 25-year-old to the Barclays Premier League.

It's Arsenal who now solely lead the charge though, with talkSPORT reporting that the Emirates outfit have highlighted the prolific player as a 'legitimate' target.

A £12 million price-tag placed on the player's head by his Eredivisie club is not thought to be an issue for Arsenal, who have money to spend following the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri in the transfer window.


With Maraoune Chamakh failing to ignite in north London and Nicklas Bendtner destined to stay away from Arsenal on completion of his loan at Sunderland, the Gunners now appear to be in the market for a striker despite the arrivals of Gervinho and Park Chu-Young in July and August respectively.

Toivonen, who has scored 35 goals in 76 Eredivisie appearances for PSV in Holland, could be the attacking answer for Arsenal, who could potentially make their move in January.
