One of Arsenal’s midfield pass-master Santi Cazorla has highlighted the need of more depth in the club’s centre forward position this summer, following a lack of quality options last season.
Arsenal finished third last season but suffered with the lack of depth in key areas last season, and the influential midfielder hopes this is rectified this summer so a repeat does not occur next season.
“Yes of course [Arsenal should sign a striker] because Danny had an injury,” stated Cazorla.
“We had only Giroud up front. It’s better if we sign a new striker for the team and for the club. We want to be more regular. Last season we lost so many points against small teams at home – Hull City for example – and if we want to win the league we can’t lose those points.”
I couldn’t agree any better with Cazorla’s comments.
Arsenal have been linked with an avalanche of star strikers, and it expected that for Wenger to mount a serious title challenge on the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, he would have to bring in at least one deadly forward to compliment his current attacking force at the Emirates.
