Arsenal to sign Dinamo Moscow striker Kokorin…on one condition

Arsenal will reportedly sign Aleksandr Kokorin from Dinamo Moscow this winter.

The Gunners are in the market for a new striker and will land the 24-year-old Russian for £4.4million in January.

But the deal depends on whether or not Danny Welbeck returns from a lengthy injury absence in the next few weeks.

Welbeck has not played for Arsenal this season and Arsene Wenger will look to bring in reinforcements in the winter transfer window as he chases an elusive Premier League title.

France Football reports that the Gunners have a deal in place for Kokorin but will only move for the Russia international if Welbeck's fitness issues continue.
