Arsenal manager Arsenal Wenger has given the greatest indication he may be signing a striker in January but not a striker from Europe. Talking to the press, Wenger claims it is difficult to find high quality strikers in Europe.
“I have said many times that Europe still produces many fantastic football players, but if you look well we do not produce strikers well. Very few, all of the big strikers come from South America.
“In the summer, you had Falcao going to Monaco, Cavani going to PSG in a big transfer, Suarez everybody wanted to buy him, Higuain has gone to Napoli for a lot of money, but in Europe that is an area where it is difficult to find.
“In Germany, I can remember in every club you had a big striker, they produced some fantastic ones, but they do not produce young strikers.
“Is that a consequence of the way we coach? Of modern life? I do not know.”
Arsenal have been linked to the likes of Luis Suarez, Diego Costa, Wayne Rooney and tons of other strikers in the last few months but judging by Wenger’s statement, it is obvious Arsenal will be looking to sign a striker from South America.
