Arsenal have made an enquiry about potentially signing Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella, according to the London Evening Standard.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who has received repeated criticism from fans in recent weeks after failing to significantly strengthen his playing squad during the summer, is keen to add a new striker and Italian Quagliarella has emerged as a potential target. 

The 30-year-old, who has won 25 caps for his native Italy, has been the subject of intense transfer speculation during the current transfer window, with Ukrainian outfit Shaktar Donetsk and Sam Allardyce's West Ham among the other clubs persistently linked with his signature. 

Although already thought to be on the look out for attacking reinforcements, Wenger's search for a new striker may well intensify after German international Lukas Podolski was stretchered off during Tuesday's 2-0 win over Fenerbahce that ensured Arsenal progressed to the group stages of this year's Champions League. 

It is now thought that Podolski could miss over two months due to the injury, and Wenger will be keen to ensure his side are not lacking in firepower ahead of the close of the transfer window on September 2. 

Arsenal are in action again on Sunday as they face fierce rivals Tottenham in a keenly anticipated North London derby at the Emirates Stadium.
