Arsenal needed to sign a cover striker for Olivier Giroud and that was met with the signing of Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna last summer.
However, the Spaniard has failed to shine for the North Londoners under the manager of Arsene Wenger and as it stands, Arsenal still need to sign a quality striker to solve the dilemma.
Last month, reports claimed (via Mirror) that Arsenal want to sign former Man United star Javier Hernandez who has a release clause of 33.5million pounds in his contract ($41million).
The Mexican international was in top form for Bayer Leverkusen last season but he has been inconsistent this season. Therefore, the Bundesliga side want to sell him and reports suggest that his signing can be sealed for a cut price of $26million (SportBild).
In such a scenario, Wenger must splash the cash and sign a quality striker this month and a proven Premier League goalscorer in the form of Chicharito perfectly fits the bill.
