As if there wasn't enough creative talent at the Emirates Stadium already, Arsene Wenger is said to be interested in luring Torino's Alessio Cerci to North London this winter.

Along with Manchester United, the Gunners are reported by the Metro's Gavin Brown as being one of the clubs considering a move for the Italian in January.

Despite playing for one of Serie A's smaller clubs, Cerci has become a hit with the Italian national team in 2013 and has eight goals to his name in just 12 starts this season.

Able to play off the striker or out wide, one can see why Arsenal may be tempted to spend money on the attacker, but it's yet unclear as to how much the 26-year-old might cost.

Is Cerci the right man to boost Arsenal's offensive ranks? Let us know in the poll above.
