We have what I would call four out and out strikers at Arsenal, they were Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Danny Welbeck and Eddie Nketiah.
Welbeck has gone and Nketiah probably needs more time so that leaves us with just Lacazette and Aubameyang as our main weapons up front and that is simply not enough for us to be competitive next season.
We will be fighting on four fronts and an injury to one of our main attackers could be disastrous, in fact, even a suspension could have dire consequences, just look at what has happened to Tottenham.
So, it is clear we need to bring in at least one new striker, one that will be ok playing a backup role but good enough to make a difference, a sort of Danny Welbeck you could say, yeah I know.
We could bring back Reiss Nelson and give the lad a go but I accept that he may yet need another season on loan but we could do worse than give our youngsters a proper try out in the first team and let’s not forget Folarin Balogun with the youth set-up, he is definitely something special.
But a high profile addition to our front line is definitely required, someone that is big that we can throw on when we need a late goal, someone to aim high balls at, someone that can hold up play, an Olivier Giroud or Fernando Llorente type of player but with a little more pace.
In conclusion, we do have a good core frontline but it needs depth mixed with a couple of youngsters and so maybe Lacazette, Aubameyang and Nketiah with Nelson given a squad number and one new impact forward signing.
