Boomakers Ladbrokes [via The Daily Star] believe Arsenal have a realistic chance of signing Sergio Aguero once his time at Manchester City comes to an end
Aguero’s future at Man City has been thrown into doubt following Guardiola’s decision to leave him out of the starting xi in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League game against Barcelona.
Reports claim the striker doesn’t fit into Guardiola’s style of play and the Spanish tactician who isn’t shy of axing big name players could ship the Argentine out next summer.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is being linked with a move to Etihad and reports claim Aguero could face a fight to remain at City if Guardiola signs the Gabonese.
This has reportedly alerted a number of top clubs including Arsenal. Ladbrokes has now followed up the reports by slashing the odd of Aguero joining Arsenal to 6/1. They suggest only Real Madrid lead the Gunners in the race to sign the Argentine and the Spanish club are placed at 7/2 to sign the former Atletico striker.
Arsenal fans will definitely be excited with this news as many have been clamoring for the arrival of a world class striker at the Emirates and this is a very good opportunity to finally get one.
Should Guardiola feel Aguero is no longer needed, he would likely ship out the striker for a cheaper fee than we would pay for any other striker of his quality. However signing the striker will not be easy as other big clubs are reportedly keeping tabs on his situation but I think this is a perfect opportunity for Ivan Gazidis and the club to support its recent claims that we can compete with our big-spending rivals.
