With Arsenal's striker crisis worsening, and Arsene Wenger's reticence to spend big for the third summer in a row, Gooners all across the world must be bemoaning the club's current lack of firepower, and hoping that Wenger comes to his senses in the January transfer window. However, Arsenal cannot afford to sign another Mesut Ozil-type player, who needs a season or two to adapt to the rigour of the English game, if they want to make any serious strides towards winning the title. Instead, they need a player who can make an instant impact when called upon - something they have been sorely lacking with Giroud, Welbeck and the hapless Yaya Sanogo in recent years.

Maybe Josip Drmic is the answer. The long-term Arsenal target is beginning to blossom into a formidable continental striker, with his talismanic performance for Switzerland highlighting his recent rise. Coming on after 65 minutes whilst Switzerland were 2-0 down against Slovenia, Drmic used his pace, power and instinctive finishing to steal the three points, netting once in the 80th minute, and then grabbing the winner (seen above) in the 94th minute. The Borussia Monchengladbach striker, who has been making waves in the Bundesliga since arriving there in 2013, looks to be quite the exciting prospect. Is it time for Arsene to get the chequebook out again?
