Arsene Wenger – Arsenal “Will Buy” If Striking Target Is Available

By on December 13, 2011

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the club are on the look out to buy a new striker in January.

The Frenchman will lose both Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh to the African Cup of Nations in January, and the club are already heavily reliant on star striker Robin van Persie for goals.

When quizzed about the possibility of adding to his squad in the transfer window, Wenger confirmed he will be looking for striking talent and should an opportunity present its self, the Gunners have the funds to buy.

“We lose players like Chamakh and Gervinho to the Africa Cup of Nations, so hopefully touch wood we do not get any injuries to our strikers,”

“But if an opportunity turns up in that department then we will buy.

“The situation, I must say, is a bit special. Economically the whole environment has changed and people suffer more. The clubs will suffer more financially and it’s much more difficult.

“Maybe we will have some opportunities because we are in a good financial situation.”
