Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Nigeria striker Austin Amutu believes he would join the Gunners very soon, according to reports.
The striker currently plies his trade for Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona in Isreal and still believes he will move to the Emirates very soon.
Amutu, 22 claims he has long been under the Radar of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and the French man even recommended him to ligue 1 side Angers.
Speaking to Africanfootball.com, Amutu said: “It has been my dream to play for
Arsenal, they came for my while I was at Warri Wolves and I
think it was money that truncated the whole thing.
“By now I should be playing for Arsenal or any team in England.
“I am happy that a coach like Wenger has interest in me for long, still keeps his eyes on me and has not lost interest.
“I believe I am not far away from my dream of playing for Arsenal. He recommended me to Angers. The French team watched me score in Toto Cup semi-finals.”
Amutu will be hoping the next Nigeria striker to play for the Gunners after Nwankwo Kanu featured for the Gunners between 1999- 2004.
