You will remember last summer when “The Sun” published a sensational story that Arsene Wenger was ready to sign Argentinean hot shot goal scoring sensation Rodrigo Palacios.
A lot of newspapers and other news related media and blogs (!) were taken in because it did concern a known player of certain ability just after Henry had departed from Arsenal.
It turned out to be a big prank of course.
But now it appears that his goal scoring ability has attracted interest from a host of European clubs including the French side Lyon.
They are about to ditch ex Liverpool and Aston Villa player Milan Baros and are on the look out to augment their attacking options as their other forward Alex is injured at the moment.
Palacios is 25 plays for Boca Juniors and is considered to be the best Argentinean not to have crossed the Atlantic! His transfer fee is put at £12m.
