Arsenal want major striker signing even if they land Carlos Vela

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could bring former Gunners forward Carlos Vela back to the club in the up coming market, but will still look to land a major striker signing this summer. 

This has been reported by The Telegraph, who have insisted that Wenger doesn't see Vela as the man to solve his dilemma in attack. 

It's clear to see that the Arsenal boss wants to add to his options up front, however it appears that he's ready to make a marquee signing to battle the likes of Olivier Giroud for a first-team spot. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Arsenal decide to bring Vela back to the club ahead of the 2014/15 campaign. The striker, who has struck 36 goals in his three year stint in Spain, would certainly prove a great squad player for Wenger's side, but it's unlikely that he will become the No.1 striker at the Emirates anytime soon.

But who does Wenger want to lead his line next season? Well, this report has suggested that the Gunners boss will attempt to make a major signing in attack.

And this will come as good news for fans of the north London outfit. Despite ending their trophy drought last season, the Gunners would have been left slightly disappointed after being unable to secure the Premier League title. The Emirates outfit faded away at the end of the season and only managed to secure a fourth placed finish.

They have an array of talent in midfield, with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Co. all starring at the club. 

However, there is a lack of options and talent in the club's front line. Olivier Giroud certainly has his moments, but needs competition and the opportunity to rest throughout the course of a season. Wenger can't just rely on the French international and must secure a high profile name this summer. 

One man that has been mentioned is Bayern Munich forward Mario Mandzukic. The striker looks set to depart the German giants and would be a great coup for Arsenal. It remains to be seen, though, as to whether Wenger is a fan and ready to bring the Croatian to north London. 

It certainly looks set to be a busy summer for Wenger and Co. at Arsenal, but who will be the man to lead the line next season? 

Who do you think it should be, Arsenal fans? Have your say below!
