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.
Arsenal are no different and a lot of us would say that our need is greater than most, especially if the Arsenal transfer rumours about Alexis Sanchez buggering off are true. But the reason why strikers are often a bit prima donna-ish and why they cost so much bloody money is that they are a rare breed and so the best are wanted by every club in the world.
How much is a player like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi really worth?
Anyway I digress and so to get back to Arsenal and our own hunt for a striker, I want to ask whether you guys think we should be looking at Alvaro Morata, who was being linked with a transfer from Real Madrid to Manchester United but may now be available after Jose Mourinho changed his focus to the Tottenham and England star Harry Kane, according to The Mirror.
Although I would rather have Kane I see that Arsenal signing the best and most important player from Tottenham is not going to happen but I do think that Morata has the skills to be just as prolific and important. The thing is he has not had the chance to prove it and that is why Arsenal could sign him this summer.
It would be a risk but I think one worth taking. How about you?
