Wenger wants Swansea’s Michu if Rooney deal doesn’t go through

Michu 2Michu is emerging as a contender to become Arsenal’s new attacking spearhead, despite Arsene Wenger’s admission that he is interested in Wayne Rooney.

The Gunners manager has put a new first-choice centre-forward at the top of his summer shopping list, with Gonzalo Higuain, Stevan Jovetic and Rooney all high on it.

But DailyMail reports that a shock move for Swansea’s prolific striker has been discussed by Wenger and his scouting team.

The Spaniard enjoyed an excellent debut Premier League season, scoring 22 goals after his £2million move from Rayo Vallecano.

His impressive displays at the start of last season prompted Arsenal into an extensive scouting mission on the 27-year-old.

And Arsenal, who are also set to sign Michu’s team-mate Ashley Williams, have a concrete interest in the striker.

The club, who also retain a long-term interest in Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, are exploring numerous striking options ahead of next season as they look to land a new world-class centre-forward.
