The rumours linking Arsenal to all sorts of strikers around Europe and a lot of names came up since the last summer, but two of them have been consistent and seem to really be targeted by Wenger.
It’s true that Arsenal need some massive reinforcements, and although the midfield is the weak point at the moment, it won’t hurt to grab an extra striker or two. Arshavin left, Chamakh will likely follow him and so should Park after a lengthy period with no action for the Gunners.
Wenger’s looking to bring replacements, and the battle seems to be between German striker Podolski and Frenchman Giroud. They are two attacking players who have different profiles, and many rumours say that the manager is looking to bring them both at the club.
Podolski is a second striker and can also play on either of the wings, while Giroud is a tall robust target man who can only play on that position which is currently owned by Robin. It wouldn’t be any problem for Robin to play along him as he does that each time with Huntelaar at the Dutch national team, but his performances are not quite as sparkly as they are when playing for Arsenal in this position.
So there is a problem there because Wenger risks to bring a player who could either cancel Robin Van Persie’s form or cancel his own, so what do you think the Frenchman should do?
