Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger flexed his financial muscle in the summer transfer window with the acquisition of Mesut Özil for a club record fee and, as January approaches, the Frenchman is expected to perform a similar coup.
Following the signing of Özil at cost of £42.5 million the Gunners are now credited with interest in players that had previously appeared to be beyond their price range, and Diego Costa is a player to represent precisely that at present.
Olivier Giroud has started all but one of Arsenal's matches in the Premier League this term and the recruitment of another proven centre-forward would appear to be something of a priority for Wenger.
Costa would undoubtedly fulfil that criteria and, if Arsenal Fan TV is anything to go by, the soon to be Spain international would be a popular signing among Gunners.
