Arsenal fans would want a world class striker upfront this season as there is no doubt their strike force lacks power when compared to the other title challenging teams. Arsenal are well aware of this fact themselves as we saw huge bids made by the Gunners’ boss for Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain. The unexpected bids of 40m pounds did show the intent the Gunners had this particular season. Wayne Rooney was also linked to Arsenal while Arsene Wenger sung his praises throughout.
Gonzalo Higuain’s move is done and dusted while Suarez seems to be signing a new contract. But Wayne Rooney is still on the radar as the situation regarding him is vague whether he is happy at the club or not. Moreover he has only 18 months left on his contract.
When asked about Rooney, Wenger said, “I will wait now until December to see what we need in the squad. We spoke about (Nicklas) Bendtner, (Yaya) Sanogo, (Olivier) Giroud. If the three do well, I am in no need to buy any striker.”
There is still some venom between Wayne Rooney and David Moyes because on the Tuesday night, David Moyes said that he was unsure of Rooney’s status in the team. So there is every chance the striker is available for a cheap amount in January.
