Arsenal join interest for Valencia strike-ace Villa

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is tracking Valencia striker David Villa.

The Sunday Mirror says Wenger has expanded his list of targets to fill the front-line gap left by the injury to Robin van Persie.

The Arsenal manager is desperate for reinforcements because Van Persie will be absent for most of the season with a severe ankle injury.

West Ham striker Carlton Cole is already on the radar - and he has now been joined by Villa.

Valencia star Villa has been linked with moves to England on a consistent basis and was also wanted by Real Madrid and Barcelona.

He has stayed loyal to Valencia - but the club's parlous financial position means they will listen to offers and a bid of about £30million might succeed.
