Wenger wants more big name stars at Arsenal ahead of next season. [Picture: Getty]
Last season, Arsenal had to heavily rely on new signing Alexis Sanchez playing through the middle as they were yet again hampered by injuries for large parts of last season.
Olivier Giroud netted a commendable 19 times for Arsenal despite his injury problems, while Danny Welbeck only scored four times in 25 appearances – often being deployed from the wings.
Theo Walcott could make a difference next season as he looks set to extend his current deal, the England forward was unavailable for literally the whole season due to injury.
Arsenal have been seriously linked with several strikers already this season.
Colombian forward Jackson Martinez’s future is still yet to be decided, with him claiming his much reported £25million move to Serie A side AC Milan is still “not done”.
There has also been talk of Arsene Wenger rekindling his interest in Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain for Italian side Napoli, who carries a price tag of around £40million pounds.
It is firmly believed that Arsenal “are close” to being seen as serious contenders for the Premier league title next season but without splashing the cash and adding two or three players to their squad this summer, especially in the forward area, it could well be another case of just doing enough for UEFA Champions league qualification.
