Wenger

Arsenal fans have had their say over where Arsene Wenger needs to strengthen this winter.

Arsenal are heading into a very important winter, where spending in January could determine whether they can maintain a strong push for silverware on all fronts or slide away like recent seasons gone by.

Arsene Wenger has cash in the bank and Gunners everywhere are expecting him to tool up this winter, making high profile improvements to the squad following the £42.5 million arrival of Mesut Ozil at the end of the last transfer window.

The question in the lips of Arsenal fans will be; where exactly should he spend his money?

If Wenger pays attention to the views of his club’s supporters then he’ll have no other choice than to sign a centre forward this January.

In a poll conducted by Poll Code, a whopping 87% of Arsenal fans who took part said the priority this winter should be a striker.

They have a point, because as things stand Arsenal are limited in terms of back up options to star striker Olivier Giroud with Nicklas Bendtner the only alternative and Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott both still in the treatment room.

Defence was voted as the second priority with 9% of the vote while the midfield and the goalkeeper position only received a combined 4% of the vote.

That’s good news for Wojciech Szczesny who has constantly seen his position as Arsenal’s number one questioned.

So there you have it Mr Wenger, a striker and a back up defender while preferably keeping Thomas Vermaelen should be on the agenda.

Arsenal fans, what do you think? Where do you think Wenger should strengthen?
