Wenger Not Buying Striker, Despite Giroud Injury

Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has confirmed he is unlikely to buy a new striker despite the long-term injury of Olivier Giroud.

The Frenchman confirmed that Giroud will be out for at least three months after he had a successful ankle surgery yesterday.

"The news is that he had surgery today and the surgery went well but he will be out - maybe to be competitive at the top, top level - until the end of December, beginning of January,” Wenger said after the 1-0 victory over Besiktas last night.

The Arsenal boss confirmed that he will only buy a striker, if the transfer will strengthen squad, but is also keen to use the other options in his squad.

"We will try to look around but we want quality and we have quality," he added.

"I bought Sanchez to be a striker and I think Walcott can be a good striker as well.

"Sanogo can be a good striker, Podolski can play there and Campbell if you ask what he is, he's a striker. They are players of quality and we will see.

"We will concede in England that every time you have a problem you can't just buy. After the first of September you still have to live with it."
