Arsenal line-up shock £15m move Manchester United striker

Arsenal could make a shock swoop for Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez this month, as Arsene Wenger looks to add to his frontline.

According the Metro the Frenchman has targeted both Hernandez and Dimitar Berbatov as potential acquisitions, but it’s the current United man who’s the preferred option.

Rumours suggest that a £15million bid would be enough to tempt David Moyes into selling the striker, who has largely played second fiddle to Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney this campaign.

Hernandez has struggled for game-time since his move to Old Trafford in 2009, regardless of the fact that he has maintained a tidy goals scored to minutes played ratio.

Speculation has been rife over the winter months that the 25-year-old could depart United if his standing in the pecking order didn’t improve, with the likes of Tottenham strongly linked in connection to a forthcoming offer.

However it now looks as thought the Gunners will steal the initiative and move for Hernandez as Wenger looks to provide support for Olivier Giroud.

The French striker has been Arsenal’s only first-team option this year in terms of strikers, with Nicklas Bendtner being relied upon in reserve.

It’s thought that Hernandez could see this month as the ideal moment to move, particularly given the fact that it’s unlikely he will force either Rooney or Van Persie out of their positions.
