Arsenal may be completing the signing of Romania and former Schalke 04 striker Ciprian Marica this week as the gunners continue to be linked with the striker. Ciprian Marica is currently without a club and is free to move to whatever club he chooses even with the transfer window closed. About 1 week ago, the player’s agent confirmed the interest from Arsenal saying the player could become an Arsenal player this week.
To further buttress his agent’s statement, his former club president also came out saying they would like to resign the player but unfortunately for them the player has confirmed to they he is closed to an agreement with a big club which was speculated to be Arsenal.
Reports in the Romanian media today have now confirmed Arsenal as the club which Ciprian Marica has signed for. The reports claim there is verbal agreement between the player and negotiators and the only thing left to be confirmed is for Wenger to finally approve the signing and the deal will be official.
Aside Arsenal, West Ham are also keen on signing the player.
