Strikers eh? No matter what you may think of them, and personally I see the modern forward as something close to a ballet dancer with father issues, any team with hopes of trophy success needs at least one star man up front to put the ball in the back of the net.
I am sure that Arsene Wenger has a clear picture in his mind about how the Arsenal first team and squad will shape up next season, with the summer transfer window hopefully seeing the boss add some top quality players to fill gaps and strengthen Arsenal in key areas.
I do not know if he is on the Arsenal transfer wish list of Arsene Wenger this summer, but if he is not then he should be, because Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the hottest forwards in world football right now and even if Arsenal do somehow manage to persuade Alexis Sanchez to sign a new contract extension, the Gunners need more firepower if we are to stand any chance of reclaiming the Premier League title.
Central midfield, or the defensive side of it at least, has been a problem position for Arsenal for as long as some younger Gooners will remember. And for those of us lucky enough to0 have longer memories there is a feeling that the Gunners have still never found a good enough player to fill the considerable boots of the great Patrick Vieira.
It is not the much talked about transfer of the Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez to one of our Premier League rivals that we are talking about, or not this time at least although that could still be on the cards at some point during the summer transfer window.
I do not think that most Arsenal fans would care too much to hear that our star striker was a right royal pain in the dressing room, as long as the Chilean kept scoring goals and providing assists to almost single handedly get the Gunners over the line.
First of all I have to say that I would be very surprised if this bit of transfer business does happen, but you never can tell and it would certainly spell trouble for Arsenal if it did. Double trouble in fact, because as well as Arsene Wenger missing out on one of his top transfer targets of the summer it would see one of our direct rivals strengthened significantly.
One way or another this latest bit of Arsenal transfer news could spell trouble for our club, especially now the situation regarding Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil and the ongoing attempts to get the two star Gunners to sign new contracts has been splashed all over the football media.
