Arsenal FC failed to add senior outfield players to their roster last summer, but . Spanish reports now claim that they are now keeping tabs on Celta Vigo striker Nolito, with a view of luring him to Emirates Stadium this winter.

After being directly involved in 27 goals in 37 outings for the Liga BBVA outfit last season, the Spain international striker garnered interests from major European sides, but ended up staying at the Balaidos.

The Gunners are struggling to find consistency, with their defense and attack taking their turns to upset the Arsenal faithfuls week in and week out and could turn things around with the arrival of an in-form striker. Even though he cannot be tipped to spearhead the lineup like an out-and-out centre-forward, he can be expected to form an intimidating partnership alongside Alexis Sanchez with Theo Walcott upfront.

As Barcelona are also looking to secure his services after letting Pedro Rodriguez depart Camp Nou, Arsene Wenger apparently has a mission impossible in his hands, if he wants to sign him when the transfer window opens again in winter. Nolito has already been involved in eight goals in six appearances and could turn out to be a valuable addition.
