Why Tévez fits
Arsenal need both a striker and a player that can make the difference day in and day out in front.
They need a "crack" if you will.
Robin van Persie is good, but he has legs made out of Swarovski crystal. He misses playing time constantly. And that's not good.
Gervinho could be that man potentially, but first he has to beat Theo Walcott and Andrei Arshavin to win a starting spot.
Plus, you can always play Tévez and van Persie if the Dutchman ever decides to be fit for a whole season.
Why it might not happen
Arsenal aren't big spenders.
Actually they're not even spenders. Arsene Wenger just doesn't work that way. Anything over €20 million is blasphemy for Wenger & Co.
So don't expect them to pay over €40 million for Tévez (or anybody else) anytime soon.
That might change with an expensive sell, though (Cesc Fabregas, maybe?).
Odds Tévez ends up playing for Arsenal: one percent
