John Hartson: This is who Arsenal must sign in the summer transfer window

John Hartson urges Arsenal to make a number of key signings this summer

John Hartson has urged Arsenal to break the bank to sign a solid defender in the summer transfer window to help transform the Gunners into title winners next season.

Arsenal are widely expected to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

The north London side have already moved quickly to bolster their midfield options with the signing of Granit Xhaka last month.

The Gunners continue to be linked with a host of other players, including striker Jamie Vardy, who is said to be mulling over Arsenal’s offer of a four-year contract at The Emirates.

However, former Arsenal man Hartson feels that Arsene Wenger’s focus should be on bringing in a defender similar to John Terry as the Frenchman gears up for what could be his final season in charge at The Emirates.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Hartson said: “I think he [Wenger] will bring in another two – maybe another striker, another midfield player and a solid defender in the old fashioned mould of John Terry.

“There is money there to spend and Arsenal will have a really, really big push I feel next season. The money is there and I think Arsene Wenger will go and spend it.”
