Arsene Wenger has made two outstanding purchases this summer so far. Firstly, acquiring Lukas Podolski from Koln was a coup afer Koln was relegated from the German Bundesliga last season. His second signing was the Ligue 1 Golden Boot winner and Montpellier front man Oliver Giroud. Those were two astute signings by Wenger and two players that have an eye for goal.
But does this mean Arsenal can contest for the Premier League title next season?
To really challenge for the title, a team must have four top quality front men. The signings of Giroud and Podolski give Arsenal an attacking force to rival Manchester City. They accompany last season's top scorer Robin van Persie, Gervinho and Theo Walcott can play through the middle. This is before one even mentions the forwards that will return to the Emirates after loan spells. (Bendtner, Vela and Arshavin) Plus the likes of Park and Chamakh sat on the bench for most of last season. Arsenal now has an attacking force that any team in the Premier League would want.
