Unless the current Arsenal strikers like Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell go on a massive goal scoring spree over the next few weeks and months, one of the big priorities for Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer window will be to sign at least one top class forward.
Many of us thought the Frenchman would do that very thing last summer and then it seemed even more of a necessity in the January transfer window and we can only hope that he has realised that he made a mistake by only signing a keeper and a central midfielder in the last two windows.
The football media certainly seem to think that Arsenal will be in the market of a quality signing up front and there have been reports linking us with some big names. Two of those names, however, could be wiped off our list of possibilities in one fell swoop as The Sun is reporting that the Spanish giants Real Madrid could be set to deal us a double blow.
The story goes that they could activate their buy back clause to bring Alvaro Morata back from Juventus and then use him as part of a deal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund. Either Morata or Aubameyang would be a great signing for us and both have been heavily linked with Arsenal recently but if this report is correct Wenger is not going to have a chance. In that case, which players should we be looking at?
