Valencia looking to nick Anelka from Gunners

The Gunners need a quality replacement for Thierry Henry and Wenger is thought to have lined up a return to Highbury for the French hit-man. However L’Equipe newspaper in France carries a report that Valencia officials are putting together a 15 million Euro bid to scupper Arsenal’s plans.

Anelka scored 11 goals for Bolton in the Premiership last season but has said he would be prepared to move on if a bigger club came in for him.
