It’s a question which has been posed for far too long for many Arsenal fans. While the team continues to perform admirably, on the whole, the feeling remains that Arsenal don’t have the final ingredients to get across the trophy line.
The dismantling by Bayern Munich on Arsenal’s own ground burst the bubble of the optimists and gave ample evidence that The Gunners are still short of a couple of key players.
You don’t need to be a genius to figure out that Arsenal need a couple more strikers. While Podolski is arguably a decent squad player, he’s not a ruthless goalscorer and we don’t particularly rate him. Giroud has obviously impressed, but he needs help.
Rumours abound that RvP will return and we are sure that any ire would be set aside by the fans if he did want to come back – he’s exactly what the club needs.
Another oft-linked target has reportedly already agreed to move to Arsenal in the summer – if his club lets him go. Portuguese daily A Bola today reports:
With limited room in the main squad (233 minutes on the pitch and three goals, Alvaro Morata, one of the jewels of merengue training already has a preliminary agreement with Arsenal to transfer from Madrid to London next close season.
The report goes on to state that Real Madrid are yet to give the go ahead for the move. One would imagine that this would be a loan deal as Real Madrid would clearly want to see how the lad develops before conceiving of a permanent transfer.
Still, a loan would be great for Arsenal. If they could get an experienced striker in as well as Morata you would have to say that Arsenal would be well set in that department for next season.
Arsenal fans, would you be happy with this addition? And would you accept RvP back?
