Premier League side Arsenal are planning to sign Atletico Madrid winger Alessio Cerci, according to Gianlucadimarzio.
Arsenal who recently ended their Champions League group stages on the second spot are still planning to sign another attacker.
After his impressive performances for Serie A side Torino last season he caught the eye of the Frenchman boss but his move in the summer failed to finalize with the North London side and he joined La Liga side Atletico Madrid. The Italian netted 13 goals and assisted 12 times in Serie A last season.
The 27-year-old will not be moving in the January as he signed a long term deal in the summer. But could plan to move to the Premier League after this season. However, he is not getting enough time but still securing his services in January for Wenger is difficult. Cerci has played only five games so far for the La Liga side.
While also at Emirates, he might not get a regular spot as there are several talents who wait for their opportunity. Arsenal already have Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott.
