Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger may have given the biggest hint yet that we’ll go into the season with the squad we currently have after he talked up our striking options following the win against Crystal Palace, as reported on Arsenal Player.
Nevertheless, it was another sign of our options up front, and with Theo Walcott an unused substitute while Danny Welbeck is still recovering from a knee injury, Wenger certainly feels like we have enough.
Arsenal transfer news
“He needed that [goal],” Wenger said about Giroud to our media channel
“We have good strikers. Walcott was not used today and he’s an exceptional striker, Welbeck is coming back, we have Alexis.
“We have a strong striking force.”
Centre-forward is a position many believe we need to strengthen given that we lack a dominant player who can contribute at least 20 league goals throughout the season.
Our title rivals all have players with pedigree leading their line, and a player of similar calibre would certainly enhance our chances of topping the Premier League come the end of the season.
If we go with what we have, despite the huge finances now at the club, Wenger will certainly be taking a huge gamble by showing faith in a squad yet to mount a serious title challenge.
