The strikers Wenger should really be looking at. By stefanthegooner1
Dear Gooners, I would just like to reiterate that I am still buzzing over Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil. He is a world class talent that will definitely improve our squad. The thought of him linking up with Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere in midfield is just mouth watering! However, I still do believe we are one signing away from challenging for the title.
It’s quite obvious we are lacking that final punch in the striking department. Do not get me wrong, Giroud has been brilliant so far, but we can’t expect him to play every single game of the season. He is a target man striker that offers brilliant link up play but does lack certain qualities. We need another striker that can complement his abilities and offer something different such as pace, dribbling, and of course clinical finishing. There are only a few strikers out there that I believe would drastically improve the squad.
Luis Suarez: He is a brilliant striker that is proven in the Premier League. He could easily guarantee us a 25+ goal season. However, he does carry a lot of baggage and could prove to be too much of a liability. I’m not sure if he is worth the risk.
Wayne Rooney: Another striker that is proven in the Premier League that could offer a different style of play to Giroud. However, it is obvious he prefers a move to Chelsea over Arsenal. Even though he would improve our squad, I personally would not like to see Rooney at the Emirates as he is not the player he used to be.
Javier Hernandez (Chicharito): I believe he is a striker that would work well at Arsenal. He does not get much playing time due to Wayne Rooney and Robin van Payslip. However, he is still a brilliant striker on his day and I believe he really would blossom under Wenger. He offers pace, dribbling and can finish quite well.
Robert Lewandowski: My personal favourite, I believe he is the ideal striker for Arsenal. Many will say that he is definitely heading to Bayern but a lot may change in a year. Szczesny is his best friend and he is also very close with Podolski. With Cazorla & Ozil behind him he would be completely mad not to join. We can offer him his wages because we just showed we are ready to break the bank for top quality. As well he will be in the final 6 months of his contract in the January transfer window so we could get him on the cheap. Need I remind you that he also single handedly put Real Madrid to the sword in the champions league semi final, scoring 4 goals.
Despite these suggestions, I have complete faith in Wenger to bring in the reinforcements we need. Just be patient gooners, our time is coming!
