Arsenal Interested In Signing Fulham Striker Dimitar Berbatov, Says Report

The silly season of the January transfer window has begun. Believe it or not, or believe it maybe but one of the British tabloids is reporting that Arsenal are trying to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Fulham to help resolve their striker conundrum with Olivier Giroud, Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo out injured, while Lukas Podolski or Theo Walcott can step in, when needed.

The transfer rumor, which is featured on The Sun newspaper’s Thursday morning front cover, features a headline that reads “DIMITARSENAL” and teases that “Top-of-table Gunners go for Berbatov.”

Berbatov’s contract is set to expire in six months, so Arsenal have an opportunity to sign the Bulgarian striker for a fee of around £3million. The 32-year-old Fulham striker has had a difficult time at Craven Cottage this season, and a move to the Emirates Stadium would be seen as possibly his last chance to win some silverware.

Transfer gossip or based in reality, we should find out soon now that the January transfer window is open.

  1. Feasible and inexpensive. Even if the price increases by about 75% still reasonable. Especially, without having to commit to a long term deal; shop for a younger striker at the end of the season since it looks like they can cruise to another top four possibly five finish.
    On a side note, caught the 1/1/14 ESPN FC broadcast and surveying articles here and there and coming away with the consensus that a lot of the top to teams aren't going on spending sprees. Makes since, especially for Chelsea and Manchester United who can wait for some contracts to expire and teams to go after players they no longer need. But still until the window closes, I see maybe a couple of panic buys by top side teams near the close of the window.

  2. Might be attractive to Spurs on a short term deal. If Adebayor goes out injured Defoe is the only striker left, and we all know how Soldado misses his weekly sitter.

  3. A lazy, uninterested footballer that even Ferguson could not motivate..Unless Wenger has a miracle cure - Berba is a complete waste of space and money.
