Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has shelved plans to sign a new striker this summer.

The Independent says sources close to the club have indicated that even if Wenger loses Emmanuel Adebayor this summer – despite the fact that there is less interest in him than 12 months ago – Wenger will not look to sign another striker.

Instead he will stick with his current selection – Robin van Persie, Walcott, Nicklas Bendtner, Eduardo da Silva and Carlos Vela – for the new season.
