Olivier Giroud on whether Arsenal need a new striker

Arsenal supporters are pondering the transfer market and many Gooners feel they are missing just one thing: A central striker.

With Petr Cech already showing his quality, Arsenal fans are confident Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla is a title winning midfield.

With Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere also able to play in central midfield, Arsenal look weakest up front despite the presence of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.

Giroud seriously struggled in the latter months of 2014/2015 and many forget how lethal Walcott has been when he has been fit.

With plenty of money to burn, the likes of Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain have been linked with Arsenal and both appear on the market.

Higuain’s recent high-profile misses means Wenger is simply waiting to see whether Benzema becomes dispensible at Real Madrid.

Would Giroud be happy to be replaced up front at Arsenal? The French striker discusses it below from the 0:32 mark:

“I’m not honouring this question honestly. I try to focus on my pre-season preparation. We are doing well together with really good team cohesion, most important for me is that team is always improving and always keep it up and try to give my best. If there will be another striker, it will be nice for all the team because the competitivity is good for everyone.”
