The Frenchman wants to see more attacking support at the Emirates.
Things are beginning to look a little bleak at Arsenal with fans getting on the back of the club following a lack of activity in the transfer market and an opening day defeat to Aston Villa.
Despite only just scraping into the Champions League places by one point ahead of rivals Tottenham Hotspur last term, manager Arsene Wenger has failed to improve the squad with any big name signings.
This, coupled with a 3-1 home loss to Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, has lead to discontent in the stands and striker Olivier Giroud – who scored the Gunners only goal at the weekend – believes new attacking talent is needed.
“In my opinion, it’s necessary for the club to recruit another striker. Obviously, I think about it a little bit. It may change the play one day, especially if it’s a high profile signing,” the Frenchman was quoted in the Mirror.
The supporters in north London voiced their concerns during the Villa clash and aimed their anger firmly at Wenger, who is seen by many to have lost his way at the club.
It’s thought that Arsenal will surely be signing new players in the near future, particularly because to rub salt into the wounds there is now also an injury crisis at the Emirates.
The Gunners may have just nine fit first team players for Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier against Fenerbahce, with key stars Mikel Arteta, Thomas Vermaelen, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Nacho Monreal and Bacary Sagna, all sidelined.
