In a rumour that has all the makings of an April Fools joke gone bad, the Birmingham Mail are reporting that Arsenal are plotting a shock move for 33 year old Serbian striker Nikola Zigic, formerly of Birmingham City.

The 6 foot 7 inch Serbian has been offered a 4 month contract by the Gunners according to his agent, with the option of adding another 12 months to the deal should he impress.

Zigic's agent said, "He was offered a contract to the end of the year, with an option to extend until the end of 2015. We will see what happens, but everything Nikola has to decide."

Wenger weighing his options before asking United for favour

With Olivier Giroud staring at a lengthy layoff on the sidelines, Arsenal have had to consider desperate measures to bolster a now depleted forward line. The Daily Mail reports that Manchester United’s want away striker Danny Welbeck could soon find himself a new home at the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger has already clarified that Giroud’s injury won’t lead him to make distress purchases, but his dearth of quality strikers remain palpable as ever. Welbeck has so far been linked to only a handful of suitors. One thing that the 23 year old has going for him though is his age and that might be the only thing keeping Wenger interested. The England international tallied just 9 goals in the Premier League last season, which alarmingly enough is his highest tally so far.

Chelsea now have the opportunity to get rid of excess baggage, before the transfer window closes. The Blues have had their share of hits and misses in the transfer market over the last few years, with players failing to live up to expectations or conforming to prevailing philosophies usually finding themselves on the bench. The Express reports that AC Milan are willing to take some load off Jose Mourinho’s mind as well as his bench and have come calling for some of Chelsea’s surplus.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani recently said, “Our goal is to take a great striker. Fernando Torres? He is a great striker. Let's see if he comes or someone else. We are actively working. Van Ginkel? We are confident. We have made our proposal to Chelsea and are now waiting on an answer. We hope we can get him."

A desperate Louis Van Gaal is trying every trick in the book to get his stumbling Manchester united career back on the track, before it reaches the point of no return. His latest ploy is to attempt a coup that has not been heard of for the last 76 years. The Daily Star reports that the Red Devils are considering a move for Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen.

As far as rivalries go, it doesn’t get any bigger than Liverpool and Manchester United. The last Merseysider to move to Old Trafford was Allenby Chilton in 1938! United have already spent a brobdingnagian £132 million in transfer activities, but only have one point to show for it so far. The record breaking announcement of Angel Di Maria’s arrival was soon drowned in the crescendo of ‘you’re getting sacked in the morning’ at the Moo Camp, where United succumbed to a 4-0 defeat to a team 38 places below them.
