The problem for Wenger is that the type of strikers who are available and could slot straight into his team are at clubs who do not want to strengthen a direct rival; Danny Welbeck and Fernando Torres to name two. Loic Remy has been on the market all summer but he is regarded by Wenger as a resort of the desperate variety.
Arsenal insiders expect there will be a blizzard of transfer activity at London Colney in the next few days.
The expectation is that a centre-back and a central midfielder will sign. Supporters will hope they are joined by a third man in the shape of a proven striker.
Wenger has been given the green light by Wednesday’s result. Now, he must maneouvre his squad into the best possible shape. (goal.com)[eap_ad_3]
