Ian Wright has told Arsenal to try and sign Dele Alli from Tottenham this summer – as well as Robert Lewandowski and Kylian Mbappe.

The north London side suffered another damaging blow to their top-four hopes in the Premier League when they were beaten 2-0 by Spurs at White Hart Lane in Sunday’s north London derby.

Alli scored the opener for the home side before Harry Kane netted a penalty shortly after to guarantee that Spurs will finish above Arsenal in the table this season.

Arsenal are bound to be linked with a host of players in the summer transfer window after a largely disappointing season under Arsene Wenger.

And Wright has named the three players he would bring to The Emirates this summer if he were in charge of his former side.

Asked who he would sign this summer, Wright told BT Sport: “I would say [Arsenal should sign] Dele Alli to wind up them lot across the road!

“I love Lewandowski, or Mbappe. In that position what he [Alli] plays, to go forward as well and score those goals, and in big games. If he has the right team around him, he’s going to be magnificent.”
