Another weekend has passed and Arsenal fans remain pretty content inside the Football Transfer Tavern.
A brace from Olivier Giroud ensured the Gunners saw off high flying Southampton at the Emirates Stadium, and their 2-0 win saw them widen the gap at the top of the table to four points.
Liverpool, and Manchester United could only manage draws over the weekend, whilst North London rivals Tottenham suffered a humiliating 6-0 thrashing at Manchester City.
The Gunners can also secure their place in the last 16 of the Champions League, with a home win over Marseille tonight.
Whilst everything currently looks rosy at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger will know he cannot rest on his laurels.
The Arsenal boss is desperate to end the club’s eight year trophy drought with one of the major prizes, but knows he will need to add another striker to his squad in January.
Giroud’s double at the weekend was another example of how well the Frenchman has performed this season, but he needs support.
The most commonly linked name is Corinthians forward Alexandre Pato, with the former AC Milan man widely tipped to make the switch to the Emirates in January.
But his form over the past couple of seasons has been patchy at best, which leads you to question whether he is the right man to target?
Here we have identified five possible alternatives for Wenger to ponder.
