Can Arsenal see a reversal in fortune this season?

Different window, same story. Arsenal are one of those teams that get linked to a host of players, but sign a very few or none of them. After beginning the transfer window with a bang with the signing of Granit Xhaka, fans became hopeful, but they have been quiet ever since.

The issues with Arsenal’s squad is glaring. They are highly under-strength in the attacking department, with only Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott as their forwards. With these two leading the line, it is going to be pretty hard for them to compete for the title—and, hence, they need refurbishing.

In defense, they lack some bite. And here are 5 players they could sign to stamp their authority in the league…

#1 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

In one sentence: Arsenal need someone who could play the role Theo Walcott was supposed to play. In other words, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the player that Arsenal fans once thought Theo Walcott would be.

Instead, the Englishman turned out to be a headless cheetah who could only run without any real intent. Aubameyang, however, is an entirely different beast altogether.

Not only is he insanely fast, he also knows how to use his pace and beat defenders with it. He has scored tons of goals for Borussia Dortmund and could certainly be the player that solves the Gunners’ attacking woes.

What can be said with full assurance is that he would be a huge upgrade from Olivier Giroud. To be honest, however, almost every striker worth his salt would be better than Giroud.
