Could Wilfried Bony Be The Man To Fix Arsenal's Attack?

Arsenal need a striker. We know it, you know it, and at last, it seems like Arsene Wenger knows it. He went big for Gonzalo Higuain and then Luis Suarez last year, but then settled with what he had when neither of those deals worked out.

This season has shown that he can't rely entirely on Olivier Girioud again, and Arsenal have been heavily linked with players like Karim Benzema. The guy they should be signing might already be scoring goals in the Premier League though - Swansea's Wilfried Bony. The Express are linking Arsenal with the Ivory Coast striker, who scored 24 goals in his first year in England, which is pretty incredible.

He's a big, strong centre forward, good in the air, and he can hit a football really, really hard. He can play as well, and would fit in well with the attacking style at Arsenal. According to the Express, it would take an "astronomical fee" to convince Swansea to sell, but Bony has said he has ambitions of playing for a bigger club, so it sounds like he'd welcome a move to the Emirates.

Do Arsenal fans want to see Bony up front next year?
