Arsene Wenger must buy Arsenal a new striker; but who?

Football News

Arsenal director Lord Harris last week claimed that Arsene Wenger can sign 'almost anyone' with the money at his disposal, and this right needs to be exercised if Arsenal are to mount a serious title challenge.

Striker options

Karim Benzema has said he intends to stay with Real Madrid, but that doesn't mean he certainly will - it is rare a player admits he will leave.

Meanwhile Alexandre Lacazette is overpriced in the opinion of many, but there is a lack of world-class strikers available to sign, so his record of 31 goals in 38 games last season could prove as justification to pay the money.

Gonzalo Higuain is someone of interest to Wenger, although he's also at a club adamant they will keep their star man. Over to France and Edinson Cavani is someone yet to be strongly linked with Arsenal, but with a ridiculous amount of money, the Uruguayan, as well as PSG teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic, are genuinely realistic targets for the Gunners.

Less likely

Elsewhere Robert Lewandowski is a long shot for Arsenal as he is unlikely to want away from Bayern Munich, and if he does it would likely be for Manchester United - that said he would be a fantastic signing.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted 25 times last season which is impressive for a converted winger. Since Borussia Dortmund weren't at the races last season that is an impressive rate, and he could be interested in Arsenal. Jose Callejon of Napoli is another potential signing, but the Spaniard isn't exactly an out-and-out striker, nor is he experienced.

Any of the signings mentioned could create an Arsenal side which is simply unstoppable. They already have serious strength in depth (which is usually questionable of Arsenal due to injuries), and with one more marquee purchase Wenger could well have team capable of winning the Premier League.
