Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is eager to sign a new striker when the transfer window opens in January.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly eager to sign a new striker when the January transfer window opens.

The Frenchman is alleged to have asked his network of scouts to find him a new forward before the window, despite the goals being shared around the team so far this season.

Having sold Robin van Persie to Manchester United and with Nicklas Bendtner and Park Ju-Young both out on loan, Marouane Chamakh has been left as the only backup to Olivier Giroud.

Germany international Lukas Podolski is preferred in a wide role, as is Gervinho despite performing encouragingly when deployed in that position this campaign.

Theo Walcott has publicly stated his desire to play as a striker but looks unlikely to be given the chance as he stalls over a new contract.

The North London outfit have been linked with the likes of Fernando Llorente, Adrian Lopez and Robert Lewandowski, according to The Telegraph.
