Arsenal transfers: Thierry Henry discusses signings Arsene Wenger needs

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says the Gunners manager Arsene Wenger should sign striker and midfielder

Thierry Henry says Arsenal need to sign a striker and a defensive midfielder in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners edged to a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon to secure their first Premier League win of the season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has signed just Petr Cech in an £11m deal from defending Premier League champions Chelsea this summer.

The north London side have been linked with a move for Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema this term, but Gunners legend Henry reckons Wenger could be tempted to add a midfielder to his squad.

“I said it before, Arsenal need a striker and why not fill in that type of player [defensive midfielder]?” Henry told Sky Sports.

The north London side made the breakthrough in the first half after Mesut Ozil teed up Gunners striker Olivier Giroud to finish past Alex McCarthy.
