Arsenal plot move for sizzling Spanish winger

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:00 Jul 22nd 2016

Although it could be argued that Arsenal require defensive reinforcements, Arsene Wenger has never been reluctant to add attacking quality to his squad.

Jose Callejon has plenty of that, with the winger, heavily-linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium last summer, thought to be a target for the Gunners.

JOSE CALLEJON

Having represented both Espanyol and Real Madrid earlier in his career, the 29-year-old has been an absolute revelation since signing for Napoli back in July 2013.

Remarkably, the Spain international has featured in 113 out of a possible 114 games in Serie A over the course of the last three seasons, starting 100 of these matches:

During that time, he has directly contributed to 50 top-flight goals from his position on the right wing, scoring 33 and assisting 17.

The fact that he has recently signed a new contract should ensure that Napoli can demand a hefty fee for the 29-year-old, but the outlay would appear to be worth it if you compare his three-season contribution to that made by someone like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain:
