The Daily Mail is reporting that Arsenal are planning a surprise January move for Dimitar Berbatov.

The former Manchester United ace is being linked with a winter exit from Fulham with the Gunners ready to offer him a short-term deal.

Arsene Wenger wants some attacking quality to add to Olivier Giroud and the injured Lukas Podolski and may look to bring the Bulgarian to the Emirates Stadium next month for a minimal fee.

Berbatov, who has six months left on his Fulham contract, has been in fine form for the Cottagers in their most recent Premier League outings against Tottenham (2-1 loss on Wednesday) and in the 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.
