Arsene Wenger could soon be running out of possible transfer targets that would give Arsenal the competition or cover up front that many think is essential – if the Gunners are going to be able to wrestle the Premier League back to north London once again.
Whether you think that our current first choice centre forward Olivier Giroud is good enough or not, I think we all agree that Arsenal could do with another striker this summer, perhaps one that offers something different to what the boss already has to work with.
But after the Porto and Colombia striker Jackson Martinez was confirmed as joining Atletico Madrid earlier in the week, Wenger has had another one of his reported targets ruled out, after ESPN reported that Borussia Dortmund will not be listening to offers for their pacy forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Bundesliga club’s sporting director Michael Zorc was apparently reacting to claims in the German media that Arsenal were preparing a bid of 40 million euros for the 26-year old Gabon international and after Dortmund were able to keep hold of players like Mats Hummels and Subotic, who also claimed that there was transfer interest from Arsenal, you would tend to believe him.
So now which striker or strikers should Wenger be looking at?
