Getafe respond to claims of Arsenal bid for Borja Mayoral the striker


La Liga side Getafe have denied that Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have made a bid for Borja Mayoral, HITC Football understands.

Arsenal need a goalscorer this month as their profligacy in front of goal was laid bare over the weekend during their 2-0 defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

The game should have been over by half-time but a combination of Arsenal’s poor finishing and brilliant defending from the Merseyside club meant it was goalless at the break and the away side took their chances when it came to them.

The defeat has further emphasised the need for Arsenal to attempt to sign a proven goalscorer

And there have been links with Getafe, and former Real Madrid striker, Borja Mayoral.

Arsenal wants to buy Mayoral

Despite reports overnight that the Gunners had seen an offer for the Spanish forward rejected,

It is our understanding that sources from the Spanish side have played down this suggestion and insist that they have yet to receive an offer from the Gunners.

The Gunners are one of a number of Premier League clubs, along with the likes of West Ham and Fulham,

Who have been linked but it was claimed elsewhere they had launched a bid.

However, sources have told HITC Football that, as it stands,

The Gunners are yet to make an offer for the forward who has scored 12 goals in La Liga this season.

Mayoral has 102 goals in 309 games across his career

And Arsenal fans were beginning to get excited about the prospect of adding a goalscorer to their team.

Despite the need for a striker, it is also our understanding that the club would be keen on bringing in a forward

Before the window slams shut but a defender and midfielder are currently looking more likely at this moment in time.

Arsenal have also been link to Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke this month but HITC Football reported yesterday 

That the South Coast club would not countenance a winter sale of one of their most important players.

Newcastle United have also been credit with an interest in the Englishman

But sources insist that neither side has, as of yet, held talks to sign the former Liverpool forward.
