Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman has called for Arsene Wenger to make more moves in the transfer market before the window closes.
The Gunners manager has already done well to secure the signings of Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette thus far.
However, Seaman believes his old club will have to do more business if they are intent on challenging for the Premier League title next season.
“Arsenal need more players – more top-class players,” he said
“They’ve got Lacazette, which is a good signing, but I still think they need a couple more. Whether they are in the pipeline I don’t know.
“I think they need a central midfield player – a holding midfielder – a Patrick Vieira type midfield player.
“One with a lot of presence and strength, with the ability to control games like Patrick used to.
“Then maybe a centre-half. Mertesacker is coming back now – I watched him play last weekend, and he looked as good as ever.
“I don’t think he’ll ever look as good as he did in the FA Cup final, that was brilliant to watch, but with over 100 caps for Germany, we know he can play.”
