Arsenal Legend: Arsenal must make this signing to win major trophies



Emmanuel Petit believes Arsenal’s 12-year title drought will continue until Arsene Wenger signs a 40-goal-a-season striker.

The Gunners signed Lucas Perez from Deportivo in a £17million deal in the summer but have used Alexis Sanchez in a central role so far this term.

Arsene Wenger’s side have won six games on the bounce and haven’t lost since their opening weekend defeat against Liverpool in August.

However, Petit – who criticised Arsenal for their collapse in last season’s title race – believes the club will fall short again until they sign a lethal striker.

‘Even though I love Arsenal and Arsene, I try to stay objective,’ Petit told SFR Sport.

‘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.’
