It is a fact that there is a dreath or strikers in the world but it is also a fact that Arsenal MUST sign a striker this summer if they want to have a chance of winning the Premier league next season. Unfortunately the way things are going, we may end the summer with all our targets going elsewhere.
Earlier in April, Arsenal were linked with the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Reports then claim Wenger is keen to have the former PSG star at Arsenal due to his experience and clincial finishing. Unfortunately the player has accepted an offer from Manchester United and he will be playing for the Red devils next season.
This much has been confirmed officially by the player through his twitter account. He tweeted the following few hours ago;

With Jamie Vardy also staying at Leicester City, Morata looking like he will stay at Real Madrid or move to Chelsea in a swap deal involving Hazard, Wenger needs to move quickly as there are not many strikers available any more. Lukaku and Lacazette are surely available but can any Arsenal fan confidently say Wenger will pay the £45 million their clubs are demanding.
If we bring in a good striker, say Icardi or Higuain or Draxler ( he is not really a striker but personally I won’t mind ), not signing Zlatan won’t be too much of a problem but if we don’t and United ends up winning the league ( which is likely especially if they are also signing Paul Pogba ) then Arsenal fans are certainly going to turn on Wenger and rightly so.
