Denmark striker Jonas Wind begs Arsenal to sign him in ‘dream’ transfer just months after joining Wolfsburg
DENMARK striker Jonas Wind has admitted he wants to play for Arsenal, just months after moving to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.
Wind, 23, joined the Bundesliga outfit from FC Copenhagen in January but following his five league goals last season, he has got off to a nightmare start this season.
The 6ft 2″ forward suffered a hamstring injury off the bench in the first league game for the club.
But despite this, he is not allowing the injury to affect his long-term goals.
In an interview with Bulinews.com Wind revealed sealing a transfer to The Gunners would be a “dream” come true.
He said: “If we look into the future, Arsenal would be a dream destination for me, as it has always been my favourite club.
“In general, I think the Premier League is the best league in the world, and it would be exciting to play there.”
However, he did preface this by saying he was happy at the club since his move and currently had no intention of leaving.
Mikel Arteta currently has Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah to compete for the central striker position at Arsenal.
Although, given how squad building works in the modern game and the high turnover of players many clubs see, a spot could soon become available.
“But as I said, that’s not what I’m focusing on at the moment,” Wind added.
“I’m doing well here in Wolfsburg, it’s a good club for me, and the Bundesliga is a great league to play in.”
