Arsenal encouraged by agent in striker search

Arsenal have been dropped a hint to make a move for Norwegian forward Mohammed Abdellaoue after comments from his agent.

A report from talkSPORT claims Arsene Wenger has been linked with an interest in the 27-year-old who plays for Bundesliga side Hannover, though it also states fellow Premier League side West Ham United want him.

Abdellaoue has been with the German club since 2010 and has scored 31 goals in 86 appearances, as well being a regular for the Norway national team.

Gunners boss Wenger has reportedly been on the lookout for another striker in January and Abdellaoue’s agent gave an indication that his client may be available once the January window opens.

“I know the rumours but no-one has contacted me. So far there have been no formal offers. What if something happens in January? Then we have to ask Hannover,” Stig Lillejord is quoted to have said in response to being asked about links with the Emirates Stadium club.

Arsenal have been going through a rough patch in the past few weeks and suffered their second loss in a row on Tuesday away to Greek side Olympiacos in the Champions League.

The game was a dead rubber, with the Gunners already having qualified, but they could only manage another lacklustre display.

Scoring regularly has been a problem for Wenger’s attackers and the link with Abdellaoue could be an attempt to help solve that problem.
