Arsenal have been hit with the news that striker Olivier Giroud is set to miss up to three months after fracturing his ankle in the Gunners’ 2-2 draw with Everton on Saturday, Metro reports.

Giroud came on as a second half substitute with Arsenal 2-0 down, and was the hero when he netted a last-minute header to tie the game for Arsene Wenger’s side.

But during injury time, the follow through from a clearance by Everton defender Sylvain Distin seemed to impact the Frenchman, who could now be sidelined for as long as three months.

Scans are still being conducted to confirm the extent of the injury, but with the transfer market closing in less than a week’s time, Wenger must act fast if he wants to bring in another striker with only Yaya Sanogo the other centre-forward in his ranks.

The Gunners have been linked with big money moves for both Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani as well as Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, but could turn to QPR ace Loic Remy or Man United’s Danny Welbeck as cheaper alternatives.

Arsenal’s Premier League clash this weekend will be at the King Power Stadium against Leicester City.

    weve all been saying it for months .we need another top quality striker,
    it is starting to look like the same old problem of not enough depth in the squad with less players coming in than leaving ,despite having the funds in the bank .
    all our rivals have spent to their maximum.all have improved their striking power ,all have top flight strikers
    we are now left picking over the scraps .
    venger must finnaly open his eyes and see we will never win the league with girould as our 1st choice striker .
