Hannover 96 forward Mohammed Abdellaoue has claimed that whilst he lets his agent control his contractual situation, he would certainly be open to a potential move to the English Premier League, leaving Arsene Wenger on red alert.
With Nicklas Bendtner’s recent admission that he would not be returning to the Gunners, Marouane Chamakh’s continued struggle for form and Robin van Persie’s future at the Emirate uncertain, many believe Wenger will launch a move for another attacker perhaps as soon as January.
The 26-year-old Norwegian international has scored 22 goals in 43 appearances for Hannover 96, accumulating 18 appearances for his international side in the process. Abdellaoue has scored prolifically for his previous two clubs in Skeid and Valarenga, averaging almost a goal every two games.
Now the striker, who has been attracting interest from a host of Europe’s top club sides, has caught the attention of Wenger, and the Frenchman could launch a bid given the considerable finances granted to him for the upcoming transfer window.
"I have two years left on my contract,” Abdellaoue told MirrorFootball.
"Perhaps I will get a new contract I don't know. I play football and my agent takes care of that. If something else happens it will go through my agent.
"We will have to see if something comes and take it from there. I feel like I am playing well in Germany against a lot of good defences.
"I look at how the Premier League is and you never know before you try it but I have confidence in myself and big belief so if something happens you never know."
