Pundit replies when asked who Arsenal should sign in January

Steve McMananman believes that Arsenal need to sign a new striker in the January transfer window

Steve McMananman believes that Arsenal need to sign a centre-forward in the winter transfer window if they want to sustain a Premier League title challenge this season.

Alexis Sanchez has been earning plenty of praise for his performances for the north London side this term after being deployed in a central striking role for Arsene Wenger’s team.

Indeed, Sanchez has already hit 11 goals for the north London side to help them towards the top of the Premier League table and establish themselves as contenders for the title.

However, former Liverpool and Real Madrid man McManaman believes that the north London side still need cover in that position if they are to truly challenge this term.

Speaking on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, McManaman replied when asked what Arsenal need in January: “It’s hard [to find one], but a centre-forward.”

Arsenal were 3-1 winners over Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
