The 5 Strikers Arsenal Should Target in the January Transfer Window

Arsenal fans all want the same thing for Christmas: a new striker.

The Gunners have enjoyed a superb start to the 2013/14 season, but remain dangerously reliant on Olivier Giroud as their centre-forward. 

Both Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski are able to play through the middle, but their services are more likely to be required on the flanks. Were Giroud to pick up an injury, Arsenal could face the unappealing prospect of having to deploy Nicklas Bendtner at centre-forward.

In order to prevent such an eventuality, Arsenal must make a move in the January transfer market. Arsenal need a striker who, like Giroud, has the combination of power and intelligence required to play as a lone striker.

Unfortunately, January is an infamously difficult time to buy. The big clubs are loathe to let go of top talent in midseason.

However, in signing Mesut Ozil, Arsenal showed that they are prepared to spend big if required. Over the next five slides we look at the men Arsene Wenger should target to fire the Gunners to the title.
