The hunt for a top striker continues for Arsenal, while Olivier Giroud has been banging in the goals recently as he has now scored in 6 consecutive Arsenal matches, they still need another striker who can not only chip in with goals but provide another option to the silky Frenchman. Welbeck has not been able to be as big a threat in front of goal as expected and always relying on Sanchez might have saved them this season but this cannot be a tactic for every season.
Wenger knows that he needs to act fast in the transfer window to ensure that their targets don’t sign with other clubs but in all honesty, Arsenal is a great club to sign for and with Sanchez and Ozil signing in consecutive years, another signing of that magnitude could be possible. In a recent interview, Wenger has revealed that he wants to sign a striker who can score 15 goals in a season.
We look at 3 players who could be targeted by Arsene and they would ensure at least 15 goals a season for the Gunners.
1. Alexandre Lacazette
The star goal scorer in France at the moment, Lacazette has fired Lyon back into contention for a Ligue 1 title as they look to break the stronghold that a certain Paris club has had on the title. Lacazette has been on fire this season and has netted 24 times and also has provided 5 assists.
He could be available on a free at the end of the season if Arsene gets his timing right and the player would be a perfect signing for Arsenal, he has the pace, the finishing ability and the movement which would work in tandem with the creativity that Arsenal have in midfield, plus he would guarantee loads of goals.
