Memphis Depay is the latest striker to be linked with a summer move to Arsenal.
He moved to Barcelona from Lyon last summer, but, after just a year at the La Liga side, he is expected to be allowedto leave at the end of the season, having found himself on the fringes under Xavi.
The Gunners are looking to sign two new forward s this summer, and Depay is emerging as an option to fill one of the vacant spots.
He ahs previously been linked with a move to North London before, when Arsène Wenger was in charge seven years ago, but, at that time, it was decided not to make a move for him because they had plenty playing in his position of winger already.
He has since re-invented himself as a centre-forward, and his style of ;play is believed to suit the way that Mikel Arteta sets out his teams.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
