I guess it would not be a big surprise that Olivier Giroud thinks that Arsenal don’t need another striker, especially as he has already been displaced once by Theo Walcott this season before the Englishman got injured. We all know that Olivier gets worried when he thinks that Wenger is looking at new strikers as he admitted during the Benzema saga in the summer, and the latest Arsenal rumours linking us with strikers like Hernandez and Aubemayang may also be playing on his mind.
Alan Shearer lately said that Arsenal need a centre-back, a defensive midfielder and a striker to win the League title (don’t we always?) but Giroud obviously thinks he is wrong about the striker and ranted: “Tell me where! Just tell me where! I will explain the opposite judgement.
“We have very good players as well on the bench, young players waiting to come in. They are very talented. I am not worried about it.
“Danny Welbeck will come back in a month and a half. Theo Walcott can play up front, Joel Campbell is doing well with his national team up front. If I am less good or get injured, we still have a solution.”
Now although we all think that we need a new striker, especially as Danny Welbeck may be out for much longer than Wenger’s estimate, the fact is that I believe that Le Prof knows that he can’t afford to have Giroud’s confidence dented, and he is thinking exactly the same thing as Giroud. I believe Wenger has no intention of buying a striker no matter how good he is….
