Iago Aspas has been one of the surprise stars of La Liga.
Arsenal are bereft of attacking options. The departure of Marouane Chamakh to West Ham has left Olivier Giroud as the only pure centre-forward at the club, and he is struggling under the weight of expectation. Celta Vigo's Iago Aspas could help lighten the load.
With eight La Liga goals already this season (via WhoScored.com), Aspas is enjoying a burgeoning reputation on the continent.
With his buyout clause set at £8.3m (SkySports), Celta are fearful they could lose their star man. Coach Paco Herrera has said:
It seems that there is the possibility of a club emerging that are willing to pay the clause.
In that case, if the player wants to go, Celta will not be able to do anything.
As yet, there are no reports of Arsenal being in the chase. However, if they're looking for a player to add to their striking options at a reasonable price, Aspas fits the bill.
