Arsenal need a “top-quality striker” and should try to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham, according to former Gunners midfielder Ray Parlour.
Arsenal have once again failed to last the distance in the Premier League title race and are even facing a battle to hold on to their place in the top four after drawing three of their last four games.
Parlour believes his former club need to spend big on a new striker and centre-back in the summer, naming Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels as the sort of players required.
“I think we might need to spend £70million-£80million this summer to get the right players in to challenge next season,” Parlour told talkSPORT.
“But they’re not too far away. I think Arsenal are just lacking two real big characters in midfield, they need a Tony Adams type player, like Mats Hummels, at centre-half and a top class striker, there’s no doubt about that.
“Look, I played with Ian Wright and Thierry Henry… we all know we need a top quality striker.
“Mesut Ozil has created more chances than any other player in the Premier League this season, so that just shows you he’s creating chances, but is there a man to finish them off?”
When asked who he would sign, Parlour said: “Harry Kane, maybe?
“That’s who I’d go for. He’s an Arsenal fan! Have you seen the pictures of his in 2004 with an Arsenal shirt on? He’s one of our own!”
