Arsenal's striking 'problem'

Arsenal have been at the centre of loads of transfer rumours -the majority focused on strikers.

The likes of Edinson Cavani, Stevan Jovetic, Roberto Soldado, and Gonzalo Higuain have all moved elsewhere, so who remains?

It may still seem possible for Arsenal to sign either Robert Lewandowski or Real Madrid's Karim Benzema, but Wayne Rooney or Luis Suarez seem the more likely options. 

But do Arsenal really need a new striker? Some would argue that Arsenal's options in attack are sufficient enough. 

Olivier Giroud

He had a better debut season with the Gunners than Robin van Persie did, scoring 11 goals in 34 appearances.

He has also performed sensationally in the pre-season matches in Asia, the Emirates Cup and against Manchester City, yet fans remain unconvinced. Why? 

Theo Walcott

Walcott is considered by many as the fastest player in the world, and speed is often related with a winger which is where Theo spends most of his games.

But for some games last season he was given the opportunity to play up-front. It is possible that he could be used as a striker more regularly next season?

Lukas Podolski

Podolski has often been played on the wing for Arsenal but it is important to remember that he also plays as a striker.

He has great shot power and lots of experience gained from making regular appearances for the German national team.

Yaya Sanogo

He has been Arsenal’s only signing. He will no doubt be given nurturing and support from Arsene Wenger in the same way Thierry Henry did.

If this pays off he could provide lots of support and covering for Giroud, and also challenge him for his place in the starting XI.

None of these players are really as good as Suarez or Rooney, which is why many Arsenal fans may be disappointed if Arsenal fail to bring in attacking options, but they are more than capable of scoring goals at the highest level.

Who do you think Arsenal will sign? And do you think they need to/should buy anyone? Please leave your comments below.
