Arsenal transfers: Wenger doesn’t need another striker, says ex-Red
Michael Owen doesn't believe Arsenal need to sign a striker
Michael Owen believes Arsene Wenger has enough quality up front and doesn’t need to sign another striker before Monday’s transfer deadline.
The Gunners have been linked with a sensational swoop for former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez in recent weeks as the Uruguay international continues to struggle at Camp Nou.
Marseille forward Andre Pierre-Gignac, who has been linked with a switch to Anfield, is another name touted as a potential target for the north London club.
Wenger has allowed Joel Campbell and Yaya Sanogo to complete loan moves in January, whilst Lukas Podolski sealed a temporary switch to Inter Milan last month, too.
But former Liverpool and Manchester United forward Owen doesn’t believe Wenger has left the Gunners lightweight up front with Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck all forward options.
Responding to the questions of football fans on Sportlobster, Owen wrote: “I think so. They have Welback, Giroud and Sanchez and they are all top class. They should have more than enough quality up top. @hobbs #AskOwen”
Giroud broke the deadlock against Aston Villa on Sunday before Walcott netted in consecutive weeks as Arsenal were emphatic 5-0 winners at The Emirates.
