Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is chasing Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy.

The Sunday Mirror says Arsenal have emerged as shock contenders to sign Bellamy.

The 30-year-old is unsettled at Manchester City following the sacking of manager Mark Hughes and was last night reported to have handed in a transfer request.

The Welsh star was left on the bench by new boss Roberto Mancini for yesterday’s 2-0 win over Stoke in favour for Robinho.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger needs to bolster his strike force after the loss of Robin van Persie for the season.

“Craig’s a warrior, just what Arsenal need,” said a coach who has worked closely with Bellamy.
