It was game that highlighted the fact that Arsenal badly need a new striker if they are to win anything this season.
Manchester United ran out 3-1 winners at the Emirates this afternoon and to tell you the truth, Sir Alex Ferguson’s men could have scored more than 3.
Arsene Wenger’s men created several chances throughout the 90 minutes, however there finishing really wasn’t up to scratch today, leaving myself and many others wondering just why Arsenal haven’t signed a new striker during this transfer window?
Before the window opened back on the 1st of January, it was thought that Wenger was looking to bring a new frontman to the club but for whatever reasons nothing has materialised. With just under 24 hours to go, it is unlikely that Arsenal fans will be welcoming a new striker to the club tomorrow.
Today has seen the north London club linked with a number of strikers including Valencia’s David Villa and Bordeaux’ Marouane Chamakh, however I personally think signing AC Milan striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar on a six-month loan deal could/would be an unbelievable bit of business.
The Dutch striker is hungry to play in this, a World Cup year and let’s be honest, he’s not going to be playing much at the San Siro if he stays.
