Arsenal boss; Arsene Wenger who obviously isn’t on vacation seems to be weighing up every striker that crosses his path, the Frenchman who is currently an employee for French Tv station TF1, as a commentator in the 2014 World Cup is quite spoilt for choice as he can’t seem to take his eyes off any striker who scores a World Cup goal.
Last season saw the demise of our possession football although we still played with much panache and guile, the new look arsenal was ready to give up possession in pursuit of the goals which matters most, maybe it was as a result of the influence of the Germans’ in the team or down to the level of maturity in the squad but that saw the end of the much overemphasized trophy drought.
Although Olivier Giroud in his second season at Arsenal equaled the record of Thierry Henry in the same time frame at arsenal, the burden of scoring goals is too great a burden to be left on one striker and the man who could make light the scoring burden is Wilfried Bony! Yes seek no further.
As reports have it and according to the Mirror, Swansea City has agreed a deal that brings Gomis Bafetimbi to the welsh club on a bossman thereby fueling speculations of Bony’s imminent move to the Emirates.
The Ivorian who was among the top scorers in the English Premier league with 16 goals in 34 appearances in his first campaign for the Swans scored his second goal in the World Cup game for his country against Greece when he came on as a 62nd minute substitute. The 25 years old brought on incisiveness and purpose to the Ivorian attack and went on to score the equalizer, receiving an horizontal ball from Gervinho and placing it beyond the reach of the onrushing keeper.
His positioning and shot accuracy were world class justifying the decision of his previous manager Michael Laudrup selecting him ahead of the highly rated Michu.
He could provide the much needed support Giroud needs, as the Frenchman performs better when rested adequately. Also when arsenal are chasing a game, they could play together,with the ever improving Giroud on the wing, since he could deliver pinpoint crosses to the top man upfront (Bony) who is good with the head as well.
Over to you Arsene go get him!
