Transfer news: Strikers Arsenal could attempt to sign in January
A look of the frontmen linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium this month
With Theo Walcott set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury in the 2-0 FA Cup win over north London rivals Tottenham, Arsene Wenger could, as he has previously confirmed, decide to make a move and add another striker to his Arsenal squad.
Walcott has looked sharp since his return from abdominal surgery, but picked up the blow late on at the Emirates.
With Nicklas Bendtner already ruled out for a month, and Olivier Giroud is struggling for fitness after an ankle injury and illness kept him out of the third round victory. The Frenchman is expected to return for the Gunners’ next Premier League match next Monday against Aston Villa providing he recovers from sickness, while Lukas Podolski started the 2-0 win over Cardiff City last week, although the German looked short on match fitness as he continues his comeback from a hamstring injury.
If Wenger decides to strengthen during the January transfer window, he could find his options limited, especially if he is looking for someone that can feature in the Champions League that isn’t already cup-tied.
So who could the Arsenal manager turn to?
