Lone front-man Olivier Giroud has been the brunt of some stick from Gunners supporters with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry particularly critical of the former Montpellier striker.
One of the positions it was assumed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger would be taking care of this summer was another striker to help take the burden away from Giroud, who played week in week out last season due to Wenger having no other option.
Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema would of course be Wenger’s preferred choice, but with the French international happy at the Santiago Bernabeu for now, and the weeks ticking away until the transfer window closes, Wenger must come up with a Plan B, which for the moment at least appears to be Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko.
The 29-year-old Bosnian international is no longer needed by Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad, and given his Premier League experience would by a very sensible buy that would not break the bank.
Plus it would also give Dzeko the opportunity to show the Chilean manager that he was wrong to leave him sitting on the bench in favour of Bony and Aguero.
