Anderlecht star Andy Najar has dropped the biggest hint yet that he could make a transfer to Arsenal in the future, declaring publicly that it would be a dream to move to the Gunners.
The 22-year-old, who became a hit during his time with DC United in the MLS, had a trial with Arsene Wenger’s side in 2011 and has also drawn interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
After performing well in the World Cup last summer Najar played and scored against Arsenal in the Champions League earlier this season, and has now implied, as per the Daily Mirror, that he would seriously consider an Emirates Stadium switch.
“I would like to go to English football and have always had a team in England which has been my dream - Arsenal. I keep that in mind," he said.
"When I was little I liked Thierry Henry and I always had this dream of reaching Arsenal.”
With Najar having spent time on trial with the Gunners before it can be assumed that Wenger has thought about taking him on board in the past. With the Honduras star’s development certainly heading in the right direction a positive ending to his affiliation with Arsenal is plausible, and it could be particularly so if Theo Walcott ends up leaving.
The England international’s future has been the subject of much scrutiny as this campaign has gone on, with the winger having been resigned to the bench after recovering from an injury. Recent rumours have claimed Liverpool are interested in perhaps striking a deal, though that would likely only be feasible if they lost Raheem Sterling.
Najar, who is rated at a lowly £4 million, might not be experienced enough to adequately replace Walcott yet, but there’s every chance he could be as much of a hit in the future.
Arsenal fans, should Wenger seek a deal for Najar? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
