Arsenal offered chance to replace Chamakh

Arsenal recently offloaded Marouane Chamakh on loan to West Ham United and Arsene Wenger may decide to fill that void in the January transfer window.

The Daily Mail is reporting they have been offered the chance to do so as Napoli have asked the Gunners to take Eduardo Vargas on loan.


The Chile international joined the Serie A side ahead of Chelsea just over a year ago but has failed to live up to the hype he built up at Universidad de Chile, gaining a reputation as the next Alexis Sanchez.

The striker is yet to register a league goal in 16 appearances for the club since joining in January 2012, all three goals he has scored for Napoli came in one Europa League tie against AIK Fotboll.

The number of strikers linked with a move to the Emirates continues to build as we advance through the transfer window.

Wenger only has Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud to choose from to play in the central attacking role, so you’d be excused for thinking he is aiming add a striker to the club in the next couple of weeks.
