Gunners to move for a striker?
Read more Arsenal transfer news.
Arsenal manager has suggested that his side will be “very active” in the transfer market on deadline day, report the Mail, after a 1-1 draw at newly promoted Leicester City highlighted weaknesses in the club’s squad – notably the lack of a centre forward now that Olivier Giroud has been ruled out injured.
Gunners fans were heard to be imploring their manager to sign a new forward from the away end at the King Power Stadium as youngster Yaya Sanogo toiled on his own in attack, although Alexis Sanchez did score his first Premier League goal for the club against the Foxes.
Wenger indicated that he was more than open to bringing in new players, but that he has to find the right personnel for the club if a deal is to be done, after the frustrating result:
“Look, the decision is not to make but to find the personnel – that’s the problem. We are open and we work on it. We are very active.”
Arsenal are not traditionally busy on transfer deadline day, although Wenger has seemingly become more open to doing business as the window draws to a close during recent seasons.
The need for a striker for the club is clear, with Giroud ruled out possibly until the new year and back-up strikers Yaya Sanogo and Joel Campbell both lacking in experience in the Premier League.
