A lot has been said about Arsenal needing another striker to come in this January, despite signing Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, and, by the looks of it, those calling for Arsene Wenger to sign an additional front-man may be right.
But do we really need to sign another forward in the winter, or does the answer lie within the squad? No, I’m not talking about Theo Walcott, even though this is a probable solution. I was actually referring to a man who was sent out on loan to Italy in the summer – Nicklas Bendtner.
Now some of you sitting down reading this may think I’m completely bonkers for even suggesting the 24-year-old as a possible answer to our impotent problems up-front. But could he really do any worse than those currently employed at the club?
Listen, I’m not his biggest fan – his egotism drives me up the wall and he isn’t what he claims to be. However, considering he hasn’t really played as the main man for Arsenal, playing the majority of the time on the left wing, who’s to say he couldn’t do a job for us as the lone man up-front?
In September past, Arsene Wenger revealed the Dane still has a future at Arsenal, despite being loaned out in the past two seasons, and perhaps the Frenchman may consider recalling the Denmark international to solve, if not, bolster his attacking options.
Personally, unless Theo Walcott is moved into this position, then I would like to see a lethal striker come. But there are very few out there that match this description and are available at the price we are prepared to pay.
But if worse comes to worse, we always have the Bendtner option, providing we can actually recall him from his loan spell of course!
Is recalling Bendtner back from Italy an option for Wenger?
