Arsenal Interested In Signing Fulham Striker Dimitar Berbatov, Says Report

berbatov shirt 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.
