Arse Talks brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit believes his former club’s 12-year title drought will continue as long as the manager in-charge Arsene Wenger fails to sign a 40-goal-a-season striker.
We completes the signing of Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna in a £17million deal in the summer but have been using Alexis Sanches in a central role which the Spaniard should have occupied so far this term.
Our win over Swansea City on Saturday makes it six games on the bounce and hasn’t lost since a match since our Premier League opening weekend defeat against Liverpool at the Emirates stadium in August.
However, the former midfielder – who has been criticizing Arsenal for our collapse in the last campaign – believes Arsenal will fall short again until the ingredient needed is added into the squad.
Petit told SFR Sport as quoted via Metro saying, ‘Even though I love Arsenal and Arsene, I try to stay objective,’
‘They never quite satisfy me, and they often frustrate me.
‘As long as Arsenal don’t have a striker who scores 40 goals a season like Aguero does at Manchester City. That’s what you need in any league: a striker who is one of the best in the world.’
