This recent report is probably some news that Arsenal fans do not want to hear at all as they have been expecting some transformation at the club by the January transfer window as they have been expecting a new top striker and probably a midfielder but Arsenal Chief scout has confirmed that the club will not be signing any top striker by the January transfer window because there are no world class strikers available at the moment and none will be available by the January transfer window that Arsenal can sign.
The Gunners were heavily linked with a move for Real Madrid forward and French international Karim Benzema in the summer but a deal never materialized even though it seemed so many times that the deal will be completed within a matter of days.
Arsenal have also reportedly shown interest in Edinson Cavani, Gonzalo Higuain, Anthony Modeste and Hakan Calhanoglu in recent weeks and all of these strikers are very top class strikers at the moment but might not be available by January.
Arsenal Chief scout McDermott insists Arsenal fans shouldn’t get their hopes up about signing any big names this winter as he said, “Generally it’s a good squad. He signed a fantastic goalkeeper.” “The manager won’t spend unless he thinks it’s absolutely necessary.
“We all know who the top strikers in the world are. Can you get them to come? They won’t be available in January that’s an absolute certainty.”
Arsenal fans will only hope that the manager gets it into his head that the club seriously need a striker as Danny Welbeck is still injured and even when he is fit, he is not such a fantastic striker and Oliver Giroud has been dropped to second choice but has to feature now because of Theo Walcott’s injury.
Arsenal might find that they will lose the English Premier League trophy again if they do not sign a striker by the January transfer window.
