Arsenal strike out with Torres/Rooney hunt

Arsenal’s profligacy in front of goal has long been a problem point for the Gunners. The reason for such a long wait for a trophy is often pinpointed as the lack of a true goalscorer. Well, this summer they seem intent on changing that.

Not only have they bid £20m for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, but Arsene Wenger’s side, also courting Real Madrid goal-getter Gonzalo Higuain, are now after a striker from their bitter rivals Chelsea. Yep, you got it, Fernando Torres.

Nando’s been a little out-of-form for a while now. Since his move from Liverpool, basically. We all know that the Spaniard has goals in his locker though, as he’s proven during the Confed Cup over the last month. Is he the solution for Arsenal though.

Real are looking to create the first quarter-billion-pound forward line. Bale and Suarez would join Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema to form a deadly quartet.
