5 strikers Arsenal must sign in January to get in the top four

Our Arsenal supporters feel like they have hit rock bottom of late in the Football Transfer Tavern having watched their side lose yet another game away at Chelsea this past Saturday lunchtime.

Now forever what will be remembered as the game in which it was Diego Costa versus Gabriel Paulista rather than Jose Mourinho versus Arsene Wenger this time, our resident Gooners are absolutely pig sick at the fact that their man got lured into the trap of Costa trying his level best to try and get him sent off – which he succeeded at as the story goes.

With our Arsenal fans not knowing who to vent at first, namely referee Mike Dean, Diego Costa or Gabriel himself for failing to walk away from the situation, it has taken quite a while for our Gooners to settle down and who can blame them?

Coming on the back of a Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb to boot, the #WengerOut brigade are bubbling under the surface yet again and in credence to their beliefs, it does seem incredibly unlikely that Arsenal will be able to successfully challenge for the major honours this term when they so heavily rely on the exploits of a few, namely Francis Coquelin and Theo Walcott right now.

Given Olivier Giroud couldn’t temper his anger, like Gabriel of course, he too is walking a tightrope in regards to Arsenal supporters growing fed up of him for good so all in all, everything is not well at the club at the minute.

A Capital One Cup victory over North London rivals Tottenham would be just the tonic this week but with Arsene Wenger expected to tinker again, this should prove to be a difficult game to win also.

While our Arsenal supporters are sick of transfer windows, knowing full well that their club usually fails to become that active within them, we’ve overruled Gunners fans’ rolled eyes this time by listing five strikers that Wenger must target in January in order to get his team over the line and into a top four place yet again.
