You know what Arsene Wenger will say about Arsenal and the search for another striker in the January transfer window, because we have all heard it before. The club will sign a striker this month if the right one comes along and if they are available.
And therein lies the problem because there is a shortage of really top quality forwards out there and most of them are already at clubs that can offer them the chance of major trophy success. The others will be very hard to get because no club wants to lose their best players halfway through the season and we know that Wenger does not like to be held to ransom on transfer fees.
We have already been heavily linked with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but he seems content to stay at Borussia Dortmund for the time being so it would take a fortune to persuade them to sell. The same appears to be true of the latest Arsenal transfer rumour link, Odion Ighalo if Watford.
If Arsenal are really keen on this sort of signing it will be a lot easier in the summer, especially if we have just won the Premier League. For now we could get a decent striker without too much trouble I expect but would they even get a game?
Giroud is scoring regularly and we have goals all over the pitch. Alexis Sanchez is almost fit and Joel Campbell is improving all the time. We also have Theo Walcott who can play out wide and in the middle and before too long Wenger will have the option of Danny Welbeck as well.
So unless we can somehow get a significant improvement on these current Gunners, do we really need a striker signing this month?
