Shock Arsenal striker target admits MLS interest

Arsenal striker target Luca Toni has admitted he would consider the chance to play in America.

The former Italian international was linked with a move to the Emirates last week, with Turin media sources reporting Arsene Wenger was interested in a shock move to bring the player to north London.

However, Toni's representative Tulio Tinti has claimed both he and Filippo Inzaghi would be interested in plying their trade in the MLS.

“Luca Toni and Filippo Inzaghi have a certain age and may have an interest in this kind of experience. We would consider seriously, as they will both be free agents after the season. But for now, we have not yet spoken,” said Tinti.

Toni has spent time with 11 different clubs during his 17-year career thus far, with a January move to Juventus his most recent switch.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are thought to be in the market for a striker as Wenger looks to strengthen his attacking options at the club.

The Gunners chief landed attacking midfielders Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun in August, whilst forwards Gervinho and Park Chu-Young also moved to Arsenal in the summer months.

Toni would provide Arsenal with a different attacking dimension, but a move would potentially hinge on the future of Marouane Chamakh at the club, with the pair sharing a number of similarities within their style-of-play.

The Moroccan international's agent has insisted his client will stay in the English capital though, and with the claims of a move to the USA potentially in the pipeline, an Arsenal move now seems further away than before.
