Giroud: No Striker Needed

The latest comments coming from Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud suggest that he feels like he may find himself on the sidelines if manager Arsene Wenger buys another forward in the January transfer window.

Giroud has openly stated that he does not think the Gunners need to buy another striker because he feels they have enough quality in the squad already.

“If the coach wants me to rest, he can do it without buying a new striker,” said Giroud.

“Lukas Podolski is having a good comeback. Theo Walcott can play as a striker.

“We have the quality and the quantity.

“I would rather not see a new striker come in.”

Arsenal currently top the league standings with 42 points from their 19 league games, one point clear of the chasing Manchester City, and Giroud has been a big part of the 2013/14 success so far.

The French international has scored 11 goals in all competitions this season, which included the only goal in their last game against Newcastle, a 1-0 win on December 29th.

Arsenal next face Cardiff City at home on New Year’s Day where they will look to maintain their place at the top of the table.
