Report: Arsenal set to swoop for PSG star

Zlatan PSG

Arsène Wenger is expected to be extremely busy in this summer's transfer window as he looks to transform his side into title winners.

The London Evening Standard reports that Arsenal are eyeing up a sensational swoop for Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimović.

The 34-year-old superstar has been linked with a whole host of elite European clubs following his admission that he is planning to move away from Paris in the summer.

The Swede has the ability to significantly improve whichever team he ends up at. He is a talismanic leader, a winner, and even though he is in the twilight of his career he is one of the most exciting footballers on the planet to watch.

The Gunners are crying out for someone of Ibrahimović's stature and talent. He would bring a certain edge to the Arsenal team that they have not possessed since the departure of Patrick Vieira in 2005.

The former AC Milan, Juventus and Barcelona man has been exceptional for the French Champions since his arrival in 2012. His goalscoring record over the last four seasons has been bettered by only two players in Europe - Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. He has scored an incredible 141 goals in 159 appearances for the Paris giants, and a move away from the club would represent just as much a loss for them as it would be a gain for his future employers.

With Olivier Giroud continuing to disappoint and Danny Welbeck struggling with consistency, the move to North London would seem ideally suited to the enigmatic Swede. The Premier League is one European competition that Ibrahimović is yet to conquer, and if the move to Arsenal comes to fruition, who would bet against him adding to his medal collection?
