Wenger insists Arsenal do not need to sign more strikers this summer

Arsenal Fans can expect no new strikers to arrive at the club in the summer, after manager Arsene Wenger insisted that he was happy with the firepower already at his disposal, reports The Daily Mirror.

Speaking after his team’s 3 – 2 home win over Southampton Wenger said “overall, in some aspects of the game, there is no need to buy more players at that level, because we have young strikers as well, promising strikers”.

Arsenal have smashed their own transfer record twice in the last two transfer windows, paying £46.5 million for Alexander Lacazette to Lyon last summer, and then eclipsing that with the acquisition of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for £56 million. They also have England striker Danny Welbeck and rising star 18-year old Eddie Nketiah available to them as well.

Both Welbeck and Aubameyang were on the scoresheet in their victory on Sunday, whilst Lacazette, returning to the side after injury, scored in the side’s recent victories against Stoke City and CSKA Moscow.
