Michael Owen says he can picture the Paris Saint Germain star in Arsenal shirt. The talented striker has lots of admirers and has had a great spell with the French champions. Ex-Manchester United striker, Owen says he sees the huge player donning the red, blue and white of the Emirates soon.
The Swede has been linked to several clubs that include The Red Devils, The gunners and The Blue Lions. Former Liverpool star, Owen says the player will end up with Arsene Wenger’s team come next season.
“You think certainly with the size of him, he will be able to cope with the physicality. For some reason I can envisage him playing for Arsenal. He’s exactly what they need – a big name forward. Fans have been calling it for ages. He’ll love it in London and that’s why I can see him coming to the Premier League,” the 36-year old Newcastle legend said.
Arsenal have struggled this season with their attacking force, hence Michael Owen believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic would provide that difference for the team.
Ibrahimovic’s contract is due to expire this season end and the striker is set to leave the French team.
Owen told BT Sport: “Well certainly with the size of him, you’d think he could cope with the physicality. I, for some reason, just can envisage him in the Arsenal team.”
Ibrahimovic has played for some of the biggest names in club football. He was with Juventus after a transfer fee of 12 million pounds from AFC Ajax. In 2006/2007, he joined Inter for 18 million pounds before eventually moving to FC Barcelona for just a season. He moved to AC Milan on a loan deal then returned to the Catalan giant. He was eventually sold for 18 million pounds to Milan where he played till he joined PSG in 2012 for 15.75 million pounds. If his deal with Arsenal happens, it would be his first spell in England.
