Arsenal set to move in on Spanish star

Arsenal are preparing a bid for Atletico Madrid front man Adrian Lopez according to Spanish daily AS.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is said to have been impressed by the 24-year-old and it is claimed Arsenal are ready to offer €12 million to bring Adrian to the Emirates Stadium.

The former Deportivo la Coruna striker has a buy-out clause in his contract which is set at €18 million however, and AS report Atleti are also attempting to increase this in an effort to keep Adrian at the Vicente Calderon

The Spanish international had a fantastic first season in Madrid and scored seven goals in 36 games as Diego Simeone’s side finished in fifth place in La Liga.

Arsenal are said to have highlighted Adrian as the player they want if Dutch striker Robin van Persie makes a likely summer exit from the Emirates Stadium, however it is clear Atletico will be loath to let the player leave.
