Arsene Wenger has talked up the qualities of Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao, suggesting that he may receive another huge budget for the January transfer window.
The pair will face each other for the first time this weekend when the Ligue 1 clubs go head to head and Wenger admits they are two of the best buys of the transfer window.
"I believe it's very difficult to make a difference because for me they are very similar. They have an animal aspect inside of them. Both of them are animals," the Arsenal manager told Bein Sport.
"I think Cavani is a bit more mobile, and makes more runs off the ball, and Falcao is a bit more of a box player, a bit more of a killer than Cavani.
"But both of them, I love. And honestly, not to protect one or the other, but it's very difficult to make a difference between the two."
Wenger has reportedly been offered another huge transfer budget for the January window to land a striker after failing to get Luis Suarez in the summer.
The Arsenal manager admitted that he might not need to purchase a big-name attacker if Nicklas Bendtner can prove himself, but the Denmark international has not so far proved himself good enough to negate the need for a player of Suarez's quality.
The purchase of Mesut Ozil on deadline day gave the Gunners new ambition to end their eight-season trophyless spell. But with the north London club currently only boasting Olivier Giroud and Bendtner, who hasn't played for the club in two seasons, as their outright attackers the side will likely be looking for more depth when mid-season hits.
