Arsenal need to sign Thomas Muller in 2016

Published 5 Comments

'Arsenal are the only club in Europe's top five leagues not to have signed a single outfield player'.

Arsenal fans must look at that statistic and shake with anger, purely because of the fact they have the money in the bank but chose not to invest.

News recently broke that Danny Welbeck had gone under the knife for knee surgery, leaving Arsene Wenger even more desperate for striking options. In January, it is imperative that Wenger invests in a striker.

An option that may appeal to Wenger that is realistic and affordable is Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller.

In five seasons as a first-team footballer, Muller has won two doubles and a treble with Bayern, and one World Cup with Germany - also winning a Golden Boot at the 2010 World Cup finals.

Muller would be an upgrade for Arsenal

Muller is an obvious upgrade to the options Arsenal already have (Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott).

Muller's overall game is an improvement on Giroud, apart from his goals, with latter scoring 14 and Muller 13.

However, Bayern use Muller as a second-striker behind Robert Lewandowski.

Muller has better stats in most other departments with his assists and chances created being significantly more impressive. Muller provided 10 assists last season, compared to Giroud's three.

The problem Wenger have with Muller is his price. He is estimated to be worth around £38 million, but the actual figure is likely to rise.

One thing is certain: Arsenal require more striking options before the fans get restless.
