It has been revealed that Arsenal have made enquires as to the availability of Juventus' Sebastian Giovinco, according to Goal.com.
The player's agent, Claudio Pasqualin, has revealed that the north Londoner's have "requested information" about the attacker.
Arsene Wenger is in desperate need of another forward with Theo Walcott and Nicklas Bendtner both injured. Lukas Podolski is too unreliable and Olivier Giroud can't play every game. Arsenal are in serious need of a striker to link up with their wealth of midfielders and fire them to Premier League glory.
If Arsenal are to stand a chance of topping the Premier League pile in May, then they need a top quality striker to score consistently for them in the second half of the season.
The three mentioned (Costa, Martinez and Benzema) fit the bill perfectly.
26-year-old Karim Benzema has scored 11 times for Real Madrid this season, and assisted a further eight goals for his teammates.
Colombian hitman Jackson Martinez, 27, has hit the back of the net 14 times in the league for FC Porto this season.
Diego Costa, regarded as one of the finest strikers in Europe, has scored a staggering 23 goals in 22 appearances this term for Atletico Madrid. The 25-year-old has also contributed two assists.
All three of these strikers are of a similar age to Sebastian Giovinco, who has started twice this season for Antonio Conte's high-flying Juventus side. The Italian has featured 11 times from the bench, managing one goal and one assist in 14 appearances. Hardly the form of a Premier League winner.
Arsenal need to sign a play that can lead them to victory, not take up a space on the bench.
No disrespect to Giovinco, but Costa, Benzema and Martinez are head and shoulders above the Juventus man. The three of them are better than Arsenal's first-choice striker Giroud (11 goals and six assists) and Arsene Wenger should do everything he can to bring in one of them this January.
In their mid-20s, they can be Arsenal players for the best part of a decade, firing them to titles and trophies, supported by the Gunners' electrifying midfield.
