Arsenal back in for The Snake this summer – report

We think that Arsenal need more than new striker in the summer. With Bendtner off and Podolski still not boiling anyone’s potatoes, Arsenal may be left with Sanogo, Giroud and the usual handful of frighteningly promising but coltish youngsters for the front line.

While we think that he will make one stellar and extremely expensive signing for the Arsenal front line, there could well be one or two striker additions from the mid range market to bolster numbers in that squad.

One player who has been mentioned more than once in relation to Arsenal’s front line is Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic. Known as The Snake, Vucinic is being marginalised at Juve by a sensational front line of Tevez and Llorente.

Talksport reports:

Arsenal are continuing to monitor Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic and will make a renewed attempt to sign him in the summer, according to sources in Italy.

The 30 year old journeyman has played for Lecce, Roma and Juventus in Italy – and done a decent job at all three. With 64 goals in 202 appearances for Roma and 26 in 89 for Juventus he’s not prolific but offers a range of creative services. He’s a canny operator with 40 caps and 15 goals for Montenegro.

He would offer the sort of experience and pragmatic know how that Arsenal perhaps lack with their current puritan style of play.

Let’s take a look at the lad in action. Arsenal fans – potatoes boiled by Mirko?
