It has been reported that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he did try to sign a striker last month.
After victory over Stoke City, the Frenchman was asked about Danny Welbeck’s injury revelation.
“It was a shock of course. I think Welbeck can play in every position up front and he is a fantastic guy.
“To see him work for three or four months and then be ruled out again for three or four months is difficult to understand but we have to deal with that. I can understand that people say that we have to look out for a striker but we honestly did not find anyone.”
