Wenger: Akpom, Sanogo Can Make Up For No New Striker

Arsene Wenger has stated that he is keen to give youngsters Chuba Akpom and Yaya Sanogo a chance rather than spend big on an established forward.

There have been calls for Wenger to splash the cash and sign a big-name centre-forward, with many feeling the inconsistencies in front of goal by Olivier Giroud last season ultimately cost runners-up Arsenal the chance of winning the title.

Wenger was unable to sign Jamie Vardy earlier this summer, but despite reported interest in Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata and Gonzalo Higuain, the Gunners are left with the same striking options to which they ended last season.

“I believe a club like ours is focused on giving chances to the players we develop in our own club,” Wenger told teamtalk.

“We have a few strikers who have a chance, if we find the right players we buy.

“It is not that easy – look at a club like Real Madrid, who have they bought? Up front, it is very difficult.

“It is an important season for Theo, because last year he had a difficult period.

“He can play as a striker and his numbers are excellent when he plays up front, we have Giroud, Sanchez, Walcott, Akpom and (Yaya) Sanogo who is still here but is injured at the moment – the players we buy have to be better.”

  1. Acttually I agree with wenger here. Sonogo is not as bad as people say he is. Give the guy a chance. He can hold the ball well, he is faster than Giroud, he positions himself well.. he has only been unlucky infront of goal at times but given a chance he can do well..
