Arsenal are eyeing Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o for a free move this summer
The 33-year-old is targeted by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger as a reliever to first-choice forward Olivier Giroud, who had fatigue issues because he was sucked dry in some stretches of the ongoing season.
Eto'o has contributed 12 goals and 7 assists since moving in from Russian giants Anzhi Makhachkala, proving that he could deliver once called-upon, especially, in big games.
The former Barcelona man could prove to be a bargain, considering that he can provide additional leadership to a relatively young squad without compromising quality.
Flops Lukas Podolski and Nicklas Bendtner are expected to be leaving in the upcoming window due playing time concerns.
