Arsenal manager set to be reunited with Anelka.
Arsenal look set to make a shock move for former player Nicolas Anelka, sources close to the Frenchman have told fanatix.
The former Chelsea, Manchester City and Bolton star is currently in France, training with former club Paris St Germain as he attempts to gain fitness in anticipation of a winter move.
Anelka left London club Chelsea during last season’s winter transfer window to move to wealthy Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
That move has now soured however, after Anelka fell out with the fans of the club for failing to bow before them with the rest of the team at an away fixture.
There are also doubts about the long term viability of the club with rumours circulating that the club’s wealthy benefactors are looking to reduce their involvement.
Anelka is seeking to agree a deal that would terminate his contract with the side and allow him to return back to the Premier League.
The French international has been linked with QPR and West Ham in recent weeks, but with Arsenal having no luck in their search for attacking reinforcements, manager Arsene Wenger is said to be ready to offer Anelka a place within his team.
That is likely to be music to the ears of Anelka, who would relish the opportunity of testing himself one last time at the highest level.
