Arsenal don't need Bacca, or any other striker, unless Olivier Giroud leaves

Arsene Wenger hails Alexis Sanchez's abilities as a striker after the Chilean's three-goal effort at West Ham.

Following Alexis Sanchez's impressive hat trick at the weekend, it seems the last thing on Arsene Wenger's mind would be buying a new striker. And yet The Sun claims Arsenal have opened talks with AC Milan about a £20 million bid for Carlos Bacca to strengthen the team's attacking options.

It's certainly not the first time Wenger has been linked with a striker going into a transfer window, but this might be the first time in years that buying one actually seems unnecessary. Here's why:

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil spearhead Arsenal assault on title

Alexis Sanchez inspired Arsenal to a 5-1 win away at West Ham as he scored a hat trick and also claimed an assist for Mesut Ozil in a masterful display at London Stadium.  

Sanchez and Ozil missed the midweek defeat to Southampton in the EFL Cup, Arsenal's first loss since the opening weekend, but combined to excellent effort when the former set up the latter for the opening goal on 24 minutes, exploiting an awful error from Angelo Ogbonna.
