Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has confirmed the Gunners will look to bring in another striker to help Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window.
Speaking to French newspaper L'Equipe, the Arsenal chief revealed the club will look to buy in the winter window as Nicklas Bendtner is their only back-up striker.
Giroud has been in exceptional form for the Gunners, but Gazidis believes Arsene Wenger needs more options if Arsenal are to sustain their strong start to the Premier League season.
"We will see where Arsenal will be in January and whether or not the club will invest in another forward," Gazidis told L'Equipe.
"Olivier Giroud won't be able to go on all alone until the end of the season. We need to buy."
Giroud has scored five Premier League goals in the opening 10 games of the season, but with injuries to Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott, Bendtner is the club's only back-up.
The Danish international started against Chelsea in the Capital One Cup last month, a game Arsenal lost 2-0.
And he was largely ineffective, highlighting the importance of Giroud to Wenger's starting eleven.
Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday evening, as they look to consolidate their position at the top of the Premier League table.
