Arsenal boss Wenger wants new striker in January

Arsene Wenger will look to bring a new striker to Arsenal when the January transfer window opens, the Daily Telegraph has reported, with the manager keen to draft in back-up for Olivier Giroud as he continues in his attempt to replace departed captain Robin van Persie.

The newspaper adds that Wenger has directed his scouting team to focus on a centre-forward, with the likes of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, Athletic Bilbao’s Fernando Llorente, Adrian Lopez, of Atletico Madrid, and Stevan Jovetic, the Fiorentina forward, under consideration.


Wenger has used Ivory Coast international winger Gervinho in a more central role at times this season and has seen some success, while Theo Walcott revealed recently that part of the delay in his new contract has been a desire to leave the right wing for a regular central berth. Lukas Podolski, a summer purchase from Koln, is another option to play through the middle but the Telegraph claims Wenger prefers Gervinho, Walcott and Podolski as wingers.


Marouane Chamakh, the misfit Morocco forward, would then be the only natural competition or replacement for Giroud, who scored his first Premier League goal in Arsenal’s last outing.
