When we talk about suitable partners for Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud that reside out their in transfer window land right now, we talk about them as being a partner in the Gunners’ squad dynamic rather than in the same eleven.
This is because Arsene Wenger has been dead set on deploying a 4-2-3-1 formation for some time now with Giroud being the focal point as a man who can hold up the ball while bringing others into play, not to mention being good with the ball at his feet for a big man.
Despite his talents, for Arsenal to win the Premier League, they need a striker to bag closer to 30 goals and with available striker’s a short commodity this summer, time is running out for Arsene Wenger to find this missing jigsaw piece.
In fairness to Giroud, he managed to bag 14 goals in the Premier League last term and considering he missed around four months of the season through injury, he may well have gone on to get closer to the 25-goal mark.
While that is all of course metaphoric, some Arsenal fans really don’t rate Giroud at all and are clinging onto the rumours linking the Gunners with a late raid on Real Madrid for Karim Benzema right now.
With three or so weeks left to go in the transfer window, here are five strikers Arsenal should sign to boost their attacking ranks.
