Ciprian Marica: Linked with move to England

Ciprian Marica: Linked with move to England

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.
