The 27-year-old is a free agent after leaving Schalke in the summer, and despite being linked with a host of clubs including Shakhtar Donetsk, Lazio and Inter Milan he remains a free agent.

Now the fact that Marica can move outside the transfer window as he was a free agent before it closes, has made him an interesting options for a number of clubs.

West Ham are also said to be keen, but reports from Romania believe that Arsenal could be heading the chase for Marica - who scored for his country in their win over Hungary on Friday.

"Marica is a really great striker who has already got experience in western European football and so it's natural that big clubs are eyeing his career," his agent Ioan Becali - who also looks after recent Spurs signing Vlad Chiriches - is quoted by Prosport.ro

Becali even claims that a deal with Arsenal is in the pipeline, adding: "He's close to joining Arsenal, but we have to wait for the next week."

Marica remains with the Romanian squad ahead of their crucial World Cup qualifier with Turkey on Tuesday. A win would put them firmly on course for second place in Group D.

Marica has an impressive goal scoring record for his country with over 22 goals in 63 caps.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
