Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger who made statement on striker several times that he won’t be buying a striker this summer but still he made the fans happy at the deadline day as Danny Welbeck signed from Manchester United. The Englishman was signed for a fee of £15million. He will be the main striker for the Gunners as Frenchman Olivier Giroud is out injured till the New Year.
