Could Wilfried Bony be waving in greeting to fans at the Emirates Stadium?

If Arsene Wenger only signs one player for Arsenal this January, it must be a striker. Vitesse Arnhem’s Ivorian centre-forward Wilfried Bony would be a superb addition to an ailing Gunners squad.

In the wake of Robin van Persie’s departure, Arsenal have turned to Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud to fill the void. However, Walcott is arguably most dangerous on the wing, while Giroud is still struggling to come to terms with the rigours of English football.
