Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi has acknowledged that the club could dip into the transfer market for a new marksman when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year. The Gunners recently witness Danny Welbeck sustain a serious ankle injury and this has left them with just two senior strikers in the form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
Amidst this, there has been plenty of speculation regarding the pursuit of a new striker and Sanllehi has admitted that could become a possibility when the transfer window reopens, he told Sky Sports: “That is absolutely something unplanned. Yes, that makes you consider things. I am not saying that's a green light to go to the market but we have good players in the house also that may get further opportunities, like Eddie Nketiah for example. We need to see. We are in November, so it is a good time to start analysing what options we have in the market. We are not closing the door but it's still not the preferred one.”
