Arsene Wenger has already announced his intention of buying a striker during the January transfer window to supplement Arsenal's depleted forces. What they need especially is a striker who can play with his back to goal, hold up and distribute long passes and, most importantly, score. Wenger has, in the past, expressed his admiration for the Moroccan/French player Marouane Chamakh, but landing him won't be easy as Chamakh is being courted by several of Europe's biggest clubs, and has stated his own preference to play for AC Milan. Arsenal's best bet might be a move for Roman Pavlyuchenko (pictured right), who currently is out of favor at Tottenham Hotspur. The 6'2" Pavlyuchenko would fill Arsenal's bill perfectly. He also has the advantage of being a good friend, as well as Russian national teammate, of Arsenal's fiery playmaker Andrei Arshavin. Together, they could create a formidable offensive partnership.
UPDATE: Apparently, Wenger has read my mind, or my blog (see here).
