Arsenal are gunning for Borussia Dortmund's Zidan

Arsene Wenger is likely to boost his striking options by bringing
another North African to the North London outfit.
Wenger who's 90
per cent certain of unveiling Bordeaux striker Chamack come August,
has his eyes on Egyptian international Mohamed Zidan, whose father
insists the Emirates will be his son's preffered destination if he
leaves the German outfit.
"Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona have talked to Mohamed's
agent," Zidan's father revealed.

Zidan's performance at club level might be average, but his commitment
to Egypt for me can not be matched by most African stars.
He's pretty fast with the ball, his role changing ability during play
is amazing likewise his leadership attributes which can be of immense
benefit for the Gunners if they cash-in on the youngster.
Above all, his predatory skills are a delight to watch, little wonder
Egypt have picked an unprecedented third Africa Cup of Nations trophy
in six years, to bring their total to a record six.

Former Wigan and current West Ham striker Ahmed Mido shares my
optimism and has likened the 28-year-old to a fast ticking time-bomb
waiting to explode.

"He has done very well and he's getting more attention.
Zidan could be successful in England if he goes to a good footballing club.
"He needs to be in a team that plays good football, beautiful football
like Arsenal," the striker said.

And who else is capable of igniting the striker's flight to stardom
if I may ask? Than General Wenger - we've seen him do it before and we
all know he isn't done yet. Take a look at the reserves if you are
Since we are richer than the blues, it's evidently clear the funds are
available to fulfill our short term (Zidan) and long term (club
projects) targets. So if this isn't treated with the "business as
usual" mentality. We could be celebrating a double "capture" as we
strategise for the future.
