If there is one thing Arsenal needs and was clearly lacking last season, it was an out and out, 30 goal a season striker. Arsenal have been linked with a whole host of strikers this summer from Gervinho to Benzema, even to Defoe but one man who would fit the bill perfectly for Arsenal is Samuel Eto’o.

Wherever Eto’o has played, be it Spain or Italy, he has scored goals. As he is 30 years old now, he knows he does not have many years of top flight football left in him and it would be great if he could test his pedigree in the Premier League. With the way Arsenal play and the number of chances he would get if he led our front line, he would easily be a goal scoring success for us.

The thought of Eto’o joining Arsenal from Inter Milan is the stuff Fantasy Football is made of but there is a realistic hope that Eto’o could just join Arsenal this summer. Eto’o recently said, “I now have the idea of proving myself in England. The money is not key for me – I will decide by the sporting project.”

Eto’o is on a very high salary at Inter Milan and getting him to leave that amount of money would not be easy but if he really wants to prove himself then he may have to take a pay cut to come to the Premier League.

What would be interesting of Eto’o were to join Arsenal, how would the relationship be with Alex Song? The two are not the best of friends and have had fall outs in the past when they are part of the Cameroon national team setup.

    Unless E’to can also play as a central defender I don’t think he will solve Arsenal’s problems at all. Would love to see him as a gunner though.
