Arsène Wenger says it would be a "fantastic" achievement if three of his players go on to score 20 goals this season.

Robin van Persie shouldered a major goalscoring burden last term - netting 37 times - but the load has been shared far more evenly in 2012/13 with Theo Walcott (18), Olivier Giroud (17) and Lukas Podolski (14) all regulars on the scoresheet.

Wenger does not mind who finds the net, provided his team finishes in the top four, but he admits it would be some feat to pull off a goalscoring treble.

"It's fantastic, it's very difficult to get," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"We just want to keep their confidence high, because confidence is needed to score, and continue to play our game. Sometimes, one scores in one game and another in another game so that is not the most important thing. The most important thing is to have players on the pitch who have the ability to score."

Podolski and Giroud have impressed in their first season in English football and Wenger thinks his new-look squad has grown considerably since the start of the campaign.

"I'm convinced that it takes time to adapt to your new team," said the manager. "We have recreated a team and they have gelled now. They know each other well and have confidence in each other. That will make everybody stronger for the end of the season and to start again next season.

"We want to finish on a high and I believe we have created a period of good results that allows our players to play with confidence. We should see that goalscoring for all the players."
