Club legend Ray Parlour says Arsenal need to sign a world-class striker to win the Premier League.
After a brilliant pre-season campaign which culminated in the 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the FA Community Shield, the Gunners looked short of fitness and sharpness as they went down 2-0 at home against West Ham United.
And according to Parlour, a world class striker is a must if the Gunners are to challenge the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City for the Premier League crown.
"That [attack] is a position they've got to look at," Parlour told Sky Sports News HQ.
"Everyone is going to jump on the bandwagon now but it's a long, hard season and there's a long way to go.
"If you look at Man City, you know Sergio Aguero is their main man, for Manchester United it's Wayne Rooney and at Chelsea, it's Diego Costa. Who is it at Arsenal?
"I didn't know who would start for Arsenal on Sunday because Theo Walcott started the Community Shield. I don't think they have someone who you can say 'he's definitely going to play and he will score us goals'."
