Arsenal have had a bad start to their season and with the much needed win against Sunderland, they currently have 10 points in eight games played. They certainly need to improve in order to attain a Champions League place and might need to fight all the way till the end of the season.
The long-serving Frenchman has come under increasing criticism for Arsenal's poor performances and his transfer activity in the summer has also been criticized. It is clear that some of the signings have yet to adjust to the physicality and pace of the Premiership.
Liverpool, Tottenham and the other top clubs have all strengthened their squads while Arsenal's squad looks to have weakened, mainly due to the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri and the injury to the impressive Jack Wilshere.
Robin van Persie is also yet to sign a new contract, which is also a worry for the Gunners, who had faced the same situation with Samir Nasri and the French midfielder departed to sign a lucrative contract with Manchester City.
Van Persie has looked isolated on many occasions this season and it is clear that he is the main goalscorer for the Gunners. However, he also has a reputation of being injury-prone. With Marouane Chamakh not performing and Park Ju Young yet to settle in the league, Arsenal do not have much depth in that department.
There is a good chance that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could target a striker in the January transfer window when even Gervinho will probably not be available due to the African Cup of Nations.
Here is a list of 10 strikers who could be targeted by Wenger in January, though it could be hard to sign some of these players.
