Former manager says Arsenal need 25 goal-a-season striker


Former Arsenal manager George Graham believes the Gunners will not fight for the Premier League title this season unless they sign a world-class striker capable of scoring at least 25 goals.

Arsenal ended their second home game of the season in the Premier League with no goals to show for their efforts as they struggled to break down a well-organised Liverpool defence.

And according to Graham it will be very difficult for manager Arsene Wenger to find the right player during the last part of this summer's transfer window.

"Arsenal need an out and out goalscorer," Graham told talkSPORT.

"They're not making enough chances up front and they're not taking their chances either

"They need a striker who can get 25 league goals a season if they want to win the Premier League - but where are they?

"We're all looking around the country looking for the great strikers and great centre halves - they're already with top clubs and they're not available."
