John Hartson: These are the players Arsenal should sign this summer

John Hartson discusses Arsenal summer transfer plans ahead of next season

John Hartson has told Arsene Wenger to break the bank in trying to lure Alvaro Morata and Robert Lewandowski to Arsenal this summer.

The north London side are believed to be in the market for significant reinforcements as Wenger looks to build a team capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

The Gunners ended up second in the table and 10 points behind champions Leicester City last term after a disappointing campaign for Wenger’s men.

Attentions have now inevitably turned towards the summer transfer window and Wenger’s plans to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Arsenal are believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this summer.

And former striker Hartson feels that the Gunners should be moving for the likes of Morata and Lewandowski, as well as Jamie Vardy and Gonzalo Higuain.

Hartson is quoted as saying by Metro: “Alvaro Morata would be a good signing.

“Robert Lewandowski is another one. I think the other one would be Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.

“You’ve got Jamie Vardy and one or two others in the Premier League that could be worth a shout too.

“Arsenal need to be in the market for these kinds of strikers this month.

“I think this summer you will see a lot of players coming into the club.

“It will be a really exciting time for Arsenal and it could be a really big season under Arsene Wenger.”
