Is Demba Ba to Arsenal a good move?

The Senegalese striker has been in lethal form this season netting 10 league goals in just fifteen games but with underlying concerns about his knee problem it makes a long term contract a big risk. The striker is currently stalling talks with the Magpies as he is rumoured to be asking for a staggering £90,000 a week.
At a glance it looks bad for Newcastle but in the long term it could prove a valuable piece of business. They signed Ba on a free transfer from West Ham and when both Papiss Cisse and Ba have lead the line they have not impressed. Cisse has scored a lot less this season but if Ba was to leave it would mean that he would secure the loan striker role and would become the focal point.
Demba Ba averages a goal every 123 minutes in the Premier league this season and I’m sure he would continue to net if he remains fully fit. Arsene Wenger is a shrewd customer in the transfer market and I’m sure the knee problem is something that may lead him to sign Jan-Klaas Huntelaar.
