There are very few pundits around, including Thierry Henry, who haven’t told Arsene Wenger that Arsenal need to buy a Striker, a DM and a goalkeeper (only Cech of course) to give the Gunners a secure spine for next season’s attack on the Premier League title. It is now all-but-certain that Petr Cech has fulfilled the Number One role, but now Wenger needs to move on to his other targets.
For the midfield, we are still talking about players like Schneiderlin and Vidal, but the striker role is definitely going to be the hardest to fill. Wenger expressed interest in Jackson Martinez but that now looks unlikely, so the latest reports are now saying that Arsenal are interested in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who actually scored 25 goals for Borussia Dortmund, despite the club having their worst season in living memory!
The report reckons that Arsenal are considering a 40m (£28.7m) Euro bid for the 25 year-old, which seems to be much better value than paying the same for a 29 year-old Martinez, and playing in a better League too (in my opinion anyway).
Jurgen Klopp leaving could easily see a complete rebuilding program at the Bundesliga side, and the story goes that they will need to sell some established stars to fund the incoming replacements, but would they really sell their 25 goal striker to take a risk on a new youngster?
Okay let’s forget that he is unlikely to come to Arsenal, and just discuss if he would be better than Giroud for us?
