More goals this season than Falcao - Arsenal should sign the new Eto'o

Stade De Lorient

21-year-old Vincent Aboubakar has been impressing in Ligue 1 this season and with more goals than Falcao, perhaps Arsenal should take a look at him,

Arsenal have been looking for a striker to help improve their title chances, but have reportedly dismissed talk of spending large quantities of money in January.

21-year-old Vincent Aboubakar could be one of the names on the list for Wenger as he will no doubt start asking questions about potential players coming to the Emirates in January.

The young Cameroon international has been dubbed the 'new Eto'o' by supporters and has proven himself to be a dangerous asset this season, scoring 10 goals in 18 appearances and creating 2 goals too. Falcao has nine goals by comparison.

Offensively the player is one of the most dangerous in the French league, on average he has 2.7 shots per game, which puts him in the top 10 out of all the players in the league.

He is physically a superior player, with terrific pace and strength that would be suit him in the physical English game and Arsenal would benefit from a strong re-sale value.

The physically brilliant Aboubakar is a player that is hard not to be impressed by, very strong and very quick, the player has a terrific physical presence and you can see the potential the player has to make it in the Premier League.

The most impressive asset the Cameroon international possess is his eye for goal. He is able to react quickly to the change in play, and he comes alive once that ball gets into the box. When you watch his goals that he has scored this season, the most outstanding part of his game is the willingness to wait on the last man, watch play progress before then making his move to finish off the defending side.

The player is likely to be a strong feature for Cameroon during the World Cup in Brazil, and with the terrific form he is showing now, you wouldn't write him off from being their star. Arsenal want a player upfront with a certain style and directness and he certainly fits the bill, and signing him before the World Cup could be a stroke of genius.

The player would obviously be keen at a move to the Emirates, and with age on his side could prove to become an assett for the Gunners for years to come.
