Walcott OUT, Arsenal Table Surprise Bid For Striker With Goal Ratio Of 1 In Every 2 Games!

Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.

Arsenal have joined the race for the signature of Juventus striker Simone Zaza, according to reports. The Gunners are short of striking options upfront with Danny Welbeck still out injured while Theo Walcott is not seen as an out-an-out striker.

The Gunners rely solely on French man Olivier Giroud as the goal poacher and would like an additional striker to boost their scoring chances in their quest for a first premier League crown since 2004.

Arsenal has been linked to a host of strikers including former Manchester United goal machine; Javier Hernandez and most recently, the Gunners have been rumoured to be lining up s move for Borrusia Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, but nothing concrete has surfaced so far.

This recent link to Juventus 24 Year old striker won’t come as a surprise with the strikers impressive goal return standing at 1 goal in every 2 games for Juventus despite not getting regular playing times. Zaza has scored 5 goals in 10 appearances for the Turin giants so far this term.

The Gunners would do with a player like Zaza as he could be a useful addition to provide Giroud with some competition as the Gunners would be looking to beat fellow Premier league side; Crystal Palace for his signature in the January transfer window.

    Walcott is an excellent winger but has never proved to be a goal scoring machine striker as well , Olivier Giroud is not consistent and he was not able to score in the last three matches against teams fighting relegation. Arsenal in real need for an outright striker who can score 20+ goals a season if they are to win championships and trophies and not to be Continental towards their players.
