Arsenal legend Martin Keown has urged Arsene Wenger to land a world class striker this summer.
Arsenal are known to have a huge transfer kitty to dip into, following comments from the club’s director Lord Harris who said boss Arsene Wenger has £200m to spend.
And Keown believes signing such a player would strike fear into Arsenal’s closet rivals for the Premier League crown.
“I think Arsenal’s priority will be to sign a top striker, as a marquee signing can feel like you’ve landed a psychological blow against your opposition,” he said in a fan Q&A on Mail Online.
“It makes teams sit up and take notice. He wasn’t a striker, but think back to when Arsenal signed Sol Campbell.
“We already had an array of centre backs at the time, but his arrival really raised the bar.”
