Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for the out-of-favour Borussia Dortmund striker Lucas Barrios lately as he has fallen out with the club after helping them to the Bundesliga title last season.
The big Paraguayan international hitman was reported by Bild last week to have been in talks with the Gunners, and now today the same paper reports that he will be on the move today.
Barrios was missing from training with Dortmund yesterday and the reason was quoted as a muscular problem, but Bild report that they KNOW that he was in talks with his new club to finalise the details of his contract, and announcement will be made today.
They also say that it is definitely an English team, and I can’t think of another top Premiership club that needs a backup striker more than the Arsenal.
Could Wenger have been feeding the fans his usual denials while working away behind the scenes?
