Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger doesn't want to sign a striker in this transfer window, according to the Daily Star. 

It appears that the Gunners boss is content with the forwards he has at his disposal, despite the club having been linked with a mega £51 million move for Uruguayan superstar Edinson Cavani in recent time.

Arsenal options 

Wenger has highlighted the eventual return of Theo Walcott and presence of Joel Campbell as major positives for his side ahead of the new Premier League season. Speaking to reporters, the Gunners boss said: "Up-front we have plenty of candidates.

“Joel Campbell has joined us plus the new signings.

"Walcott is coming back at the end of the month so if you look at the number of players we have up-front we have unbelievable strength."

Despite the signing of Alexis Sanchez, many Gunners fans had hoped that the club would add another out-and-out striker to the club before the close of the transfer window. Olivier Giroud looks set to play a key role at the Emirates once again this term, with Yaya Sanogo acting as his back-up. 

Gunners fans will also be hoping that new signing Alexis Sanchez delivers the goods this season, with the ex-Barcelona man set to feature either out-wide or in attack. Arsenal fans will be hoping the club start the season in style and secure all three points against Crystal Palace tomorrow. 

Cavani interest 

With Wenger out of the race to land Cavani, their Premier League rivals may well be boosted in pursuit of the player's signature. The same report has linked the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea with a move for the World Cup ace, but it remains to be seen as to whether the clubs will step up their interest in the PSG man. 

Manchester United already have an array of talent in their attacking line, with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Co. starring at Old Trafford. Chelsea, meanwhile, may be forced to make a move before the close of the window after Didier Drogba's injury. Blues boss Jose Mourinho does, however, still have Spanish duo Fernando Torres and Diego Costa at his disposal. 

Liverpool are certainly in need of improvement in their attacking line after the sale of former talisman Luis Suarez. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has already purchased Rickie Lambert and Divock Origi, with the latter having returned to Lille on loan for the 2014/15 season. Cavani, then, could represent the marquee name that Liverpool fans are craving.
