So Arsenal DID try to sign a forward this summer?

Even though us Arsenal fans are feeling on top of the world this morning and a lot more happy with our long serving manager Arsene Wenger, with a thumping 3-0 victory over Premier League rivals Manchester United being just what we needed, there is still a lot of anger and confusion about the failure to do much in the summer transfer window.

Wenger did keep saying that he was trying to find and sign players for Arsenal but that it was not easy and a report by Metro today seems to back up the claim.
