Arsenal are set to finally sign a striker this summer, according to reports.

This report is according to Squawka who claim the Gunners will complete the transfer of Juventus striker Fernando Llorente as early as next week Monday.

Arsenal had been heavily linked to the World and European Cup winner during his time at Athletic Bilbao, but opted for a move to Turin instead.

And now, Squawka says Arsenal will finally land the 30-year-old Spaniard next week Monday for a fee of £8.56million.

Although Arsene Wenger had stated over the weekend that the club is not desperate to bring in a striker this summer; however, many fans are of the opinion that the Gunners need to add more firepower to their attack as they seek to claim their first EPL title in over a decade.

Llorente who is also a summer transfer target for north London rivals Tottenham, made 31 league appearances scoring only 7 goals for the Serie A champions last season.

    Gad, I wish someone would sign him. I get the willies every time I hear his name linked with Spurs. I know Baldini is still here. This is a Baldini kind of signing. We still have 2 over-priced over the hill strikers to deal with. No to Llorente please.
