Arsenal have reportedly outlined Atletico Madrid striker Adrian Lopez as their key target for the January transfer window as Arsene Wenger plans to bring more goalscoring reinforcements to the club.

Adrian has been linked with Arsenal for some time and now, it would appear, Wenger will make a concerted effort to bring the 24-year-old Spaniard to to the Emirates Stadium in the New Year.

According to, Adrian has been identified as Arsenal's No.1 transfer window target, with the Gunners set to pay £14.6 million to trigger his Atletico release clause.

Wenger has reportedly decided he striking department is in need of reinforcement in the transfer window, with the acquisition of Adrian set to bolster an Arsenal front line already boasting Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Gervinho.

Arsenal have also been linked with Adrian's Atletico Madrid teammate Falcao, although the Colombian is surely set to prove too expensive for the Gunners.

Wenger will reportedly have £35 million to spend in January, and a deal for Adrian will free up enough money for the Arsenal manager to make some other signings of note.

Falcao, meanwhile, is likely to far exceed the cash at Wenger's disposal, with the 26-year-old having signed for Atleti for €40 million little over a year ago.
