Arsenal are considering a move in signing Boca Juniors striker Jonathan Calleri in January, according to Tutto Mercato Web.

The 21-year-old came up through the ranks of the All Boys' youth setup before making it to their first team in 2012. He impressed during his time at the club based in Floresta, which helped him make a switch to Boca Juniors earlier this year.

Calleri has already excelled for the Argentine capital club as he has bagged six goals from 15 appearances for his new club. The striker's style of play has seen him being dubbed as "new Gonzalo Higuain."

The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has set his sights on Calleri as he is willing to bring him to the Emirates as a replacement for Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell.

The German international has struggled to break into the north London club's starting XI and lack of playing time has left the forward frustrated. Podolski has already revealed Wolfsburg have already made contact and he could leave Arsenal next month.

Campbell spent the last season on-loan at Olympiacos and was already part of Costa Rica's squad during the World Cup in Brazil. Despite finding the back of the net regularly, he has not sealed a regular spot in Arsenal's squad and is reportedly set for another loan spell in January.

The Mirror reports Swansea City, Everton and West Bromwich Albion are the clubs who are interested in signing Campbell on-loan when the transfer window re-opens next month.

Meanwhile, Yaya Sanogo is set for a loan spell as the Daily Mail claims Crystal Palace are keen on securing his services for the remainder of the season in January.

The potential departure of Podolski and Campbell will leave Wenger with Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck as the only recognised strikers in the squad. The Frenchman is believed to replace both Podolski and Campbell by signing Calleri in the mid-season transfer window.
