Have Arsenal got enough striking options? by M McC
After Arsenal’s good win over our London neighbours West Ham, I found myself asking the question; do the Gunners have enough strikers or do we still need to invest heavily on a big name?
I personally think that with Welbeck, Giroud, and the up and coming Akpom, we are in pretty good shape, so Wenger should save his money for other positions in the squad. We also have Walcott who can fill in, as can Sanchez plus Yaya Sanogo and Campbell out on loan.
Even if wenger was to bring in a big name player like Cavani or Martinez there is no guarantee they will be a hit – just look at Man United and Falcao – so money doesn’t automatically equal success.
I think were in good position right now in terms of strikers with Giroud as our main man, who is playing very well since the New Year. He is finding the back of the net on a consistent basis and his goal yesterday was a sublime finish to an excellent build up. All I would like too see is Akpom introduced a bit more, because he has the ability to lead the line for us for many years to come. Bringing in players with big names and wages means he will find it difficult to get playing time.
So I think Arsenal should keep their powder dry in terms of strikers for now at least, at spend it in much more needed areas like another top class DM (let Flamini go) and another rock solid centre-back.
What you think fellow Gooners?
