Giroud: Arsenal need another striker

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has joined the increasingly raucous chorus of critics urging the club to sign a quality forward in the final two weeks of the transfer window.

Cross: Ill-advised Cabaye bid
Mangan: Arsenal reap what they sow

Giroud's comments are likely to send ripples through an Arsenal dressing room still reeling from their 3-1 opening day defeat at the hands of Aston Villa, with the Frenchman breaking ranks to apparently suggest the squad Arsene Wenger has put in place is not good enough to compete for top honours.

"In my opinion, it’s necessary for the club to recruit another striker," Giroud reportedly told French reporters. "Obviously, I think about it a little bit. It may change the play one day, especially if it’s a high profile signing.

"It's useless lamenting this though. I know what I have to do and what I'm capable of. I’m focusing on me and my work. The coach is counting on me, so I don't think too much."

Meanwhile, Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson is convinced Arsenal will bounce back to form in their Champions League play-off game against Fenerbahce in Turkey on Wednesday night.

"We want to be playing in the Champions League. It’s the pinnacle of football and it’s where this club belongs so we’ve got to get our heads straight and recover from the Villa result," he told the Arsenal website.

"We’ve played one game and of course everyone is really disappointed. You could hear that the fans are disappointed. They don’t want to see that at home.

"The only thing I can say is that we’re as disappointed as the fans. If you were in the dressing room after, you would have been able to tell that. Believe me, we’re going to fight to put things right.

"The season is a very long one and we’ve started poorly before and come back to have very strong seasons. We’ve lost one game. We shouldn’t look into things too much. There’s no denying we’re all really disappointed but as I’ve said, we’ll be battling to put things right and that starts in midweek."
