Ray Parlour predicts the outcome of Arsenal’s striker search this month

Arsenal is reportedly desperate to secure a striker in the current transfer window, recognising the need for additional goal-scoring prowess to contend for the league title under Mikel Arteta’s management.

Despite significant spending in the summer, Arsenal did not secure a frontman, relying on Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah to fill the role. However, both players have not met the expectations set for them, impacting Arsenal’s goal-scoring capabilities.

Arsenal is eager to address this issue in the current transfer window, but financial constraints may pose a challenge. According to Ray Parlour, a former Arsenal player, the club might lack the financial resources needed to acquire the calibre of striker required to enhance their attacking options

He tells Talk Sport:

“Ivan Toney, a lot of clubs are looking at his side and we cannot spend that kind of money.

“We would love to, we desperately need a striker, but we haven’t got the money to do it.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We clearly know what we need and have been working on a solution for weeks, but it is difficult for us to achieve it because there is no money.

It would be interesting to see if we will sell some players and fund a move for a new striker in the coming days.

  1. Hear that Chelsea could land Vlahovic. How is it possible that they continue out spend us big time and not fall foul of FFP? We are hamstrung this winter because of FFP restrictions and yet Chelsea continue their free wheel spending.
    Also how is it that Citi have managed to sweep their long list of FFP contraventions under the carpet? This FFP is beginning to look like a farse.

    1. How can it be that we can spend £65 million in transfers fees and £72 million on wages for a player that for years proved with Chelsea that he was simply not cut out to play in the EPL?
      That is the question that will lead you to the answer of why Arsenal are struggling to sign anyone this month.
      And that is down to Arteta… 

  2. Can someone ask Vivianne Meidama and Stina Blackstenius to come over to the training ground and give Saka and Co. lessons on scoring.

  3. How Arsenal did not want to sign VVD because of his purported none challant attitude. But that narrative cannot help Arsenal to win titles this season.
    But what I honestly think will help the Gunners to return to the winning ways, after the recent slum that they’d went through in the Epl and FA Cup.
    Will be I think and believe can help them, moreso help the Gunners to win the Epl title this season.
    will be for Arteta to reinigorate and reivijunate his Arsenal team squad to have a unrivaled great games winning run perfor,ance in the 2nd half of the season. And sign a new top quality clinical finish top league regular goals scoring striker to enhance Arsenal chances to win the Epl title this season. And win it unfailingly.

  4. No incoming striker…we have too much outgoings financially . Installment paymnets on past ans present and somw deadwood still taking a paycheck.

  5. Basic football insights should tell anyone we don’t need a so called “prolific striker”. All we need now is start doing the last bit of our excellent moves which is finding the back of then net and that’s down to the players we already have and manager and his coaching staff of their respective specializations. No opponent can stop us when we start doing that last bit of action.
