While the saga of Adebayor’s apparent exodus from the Emirates is continuing, Arsene Wenger like all good managers, is keeping his eyes and options open for a possible replacement.
He has been linked to Spain’s top scorer Daniel Guiza before but this time the link seems to have been confirmed by Guiza’s agent Felix Moneo.
But not as you might expect in trying, true to all agents ploys, to artificially raise up the supposed interest in his player.
In fact Moneo is a little bit fed up waiting for a bid for Guiza from Arsenal which seems to be a little bit slow in coming.
Guiza has already undergone a medical and agreed personal terms with Turkish club Fenerbahçe but he has not put pen to paper yet as his agent was led to believe that a bid would soon follow from Arsenal.
He is reported to have indicated in the Spanish press today that he did not rule out Arsenal showing an interest.
Güiza who is 28 next August won the Pichichi or the golden boot in the Spanish League this season with Mallorca.
He is the first Spanish player to do so since Diego Tristan triumphed in 2002 with Deportivo La Coruna.
The player scored 27 La Liga goals (in 37 appearances) none of which came from the penalty spot, while playing for a club who finished in seventh place.
As you might expect goal scoring opportunities may not be as forthcoming as at top sides and this record has alerted some of the top clubs on the continent.
Güiza scored Spain's second goal in a 2-1 victory over Greece for his first international goal but missed one of Spain’s penalties in the shoot out against Italy.
He reportedly has a €15m (£11.7m) release clause in his contract.
Arsene, take the Adebayor money and buy Arshavin
