Zigic to Arsenal?
So Arsenal where in need of a striker after seeing Olivier Giroud pick up an injury , it is feared that the the Frenchman could miss at least three months of the season. So after Samuel Eto’o signed for Everton and loan moves for Radamel Falcao seeming to be over, where should you turn ….
The answer if you where wondering appears to be : Nikola Žigić , the recently released striker from Birmingham in the championship. He is far from prolific in terms of scoring goals:
|1998–2001||AIK Bačka Topola||76||(68)|
|2003–2006||Red Star Belgrade||79||(47)|
|2003||→ Spartak Subotica (loan)||11||(14)|
|2009||→ Racing Santander (loan)||19||(13)|
This does seem a very strange signing if this is the case! It strangly reminds us of the Andy Booth signing for Tottenham on loan from Sheffield Wednesday in 2001. What could go wrong??
Luckily though it has all proved completely rubbish!
