There is a lot of talk surrounding Arsenal and the need for Arsene Wenger to bring in a new striker in January. Olivier Giroud has been the main man upfront and he needs some help if we are to continue pushing for the Premier League title and also mount a serious Champions League run; one striker will simply not cut it.

Arsenal continue to be linked with all names for strikers but Arsene Wenger has dropped the biggest hint yet that he will make move for Greek forward Konstantinos Mitroglou in the winter transfer window, by admitting that he cannot overlook him.

Reports in French newspaper Le 10 Sport suggest that Wenger is an admirer of the 25-year old striker and can not rule out looking at him as a transfer option.

“As the Greek league is less on the front of the stage, there is less talk of Mitroglou. It is discovered that when playing international matches. At Arsenal, it is well known since played the Olympiakos in the Champions League,” Wenger is quoted as having said.

“He is a true finisher.

“He must try to evolve to a higher level to see if it is really capable of. In any case, all the major European clubs will certainly be alert. When you look at his statistics, we can not neglect.”

It is being suggested that Mitroglou would cost around €8million which would be a giveaway for a player of his quality. Other potential signings like Benzema, Suarez or Benteke would cost much more than that.

Let us hope that Wenger does make a serious move for the Greek striker in January as Liverpool are also said to be interested in signing him. The downside of signing Mitroglou would be that he is cup tied in the Champions League as he has already played for Olympiakos this season.

    Nope, don’t think so. This January period until season end, is not the right time to try out an unknown strikers. A set back it’ll be because he played for Greek league dude! What we expect will come out from there? A Drogba type with bargain price? NONSENSE. I really hope Arsene don’t think the way you’ve wrote!
    We have the money to land the world class one, and to determine our title campaign, when our competitor are still work for their consistency. So, WHY THE HELL WE WON’T OPTIMIZED IT ?!
