Curiously, the Gunners had the best record of the second half of the season last term. Racking a total of 13 wins in their last 19 games.
With the only arrival at the Emirates being former long term serving goalkeeper Peter CECH from Chelsea ‎,it would do a great deal for them to go for a proven striker in the market. One who has a great track record of holding the line up for is supporting cast,beeing a focal point in their attacks and most importantly banging in goals for the side.It would be presumptuous to think that the likes of Akpom and Sanogo(currently loaned out to Ajax) could lead the line in Arsenals attack and realistically push for a starting role in the team when they’ve shown flashes here and there whenever opportunities came their way.Neverthe less, a good striker with the  proven ilk is a cautious  risk to take on the long run.
