Arsene Wenger says Arsenal are 'active' in the transfer market to sign a striker on deadline day
Giroud's injury has made a striker top of his priorities
Arsene Wenger has hinted that he intends to buy a striker before tomorrow night's transfer deadline by saying that Arsenal are "active" in the market, although he could make no promises a transfer would be completed.
A frontman is at the top of Wenger's plans, after Olivier Giroud was ruled out until the end of December at the very earliest after breaking his right tibia in the 2-2 draw with Everton last weekend.
The Gunners had been linked with Loic Remy, but he completed his £10.5m move to Chelsea today.
Speaking to BBC Sport after his side's 1-1 draw with Leicester City, the manager said when asked if he would be making any more signings before tomorrow's deadline.

"Our attackers did well [today] but on the other hand they were not fantastic they didn't score. We are active in the window, we are working hard to find a solution," he said.
"We try very hard. Nobody can ever predict what can happen in the last 24 hours. But if we had to buy a player every time you didn't win a game it would be too easy. In the Premier League it is difficult to win games. That is the way it is."
