Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Ian Wright is pleading with Arsene Wenger to buy in January.
Wenger is not a fan of spending big mid-season but Wright has urged the Arsenal boss to get his chequebook out as they have a great shot at lifting the Premier League title.
“When Francis Coquelin went down at The Hawthorns on Saturday, you could hear the groans from Gunners fans around the world,” the ex-Gunners striker wrote in The Sun.
“That’s how important the Frenchman has been to Arsenal… and that’s how massive the blow is to their chances of lifting the Premier League.
“So, of course, something needs to be done in January.
“But what is as important is that when, I sincerely hope it is a ‘when’ and not an ‘if’, Arsene signs he gets the right man.
“By that I mean someone who will genuinely bring something to the table, rather than simply fill in around the edges.
“I don’t intend to put any more pressure on Arsene with this, because he’s under enough already January is clearly his most important transfer window in years and years.
“If he can bring in the right man ?or men ?then it could make a world of difference to whether Arsenal can go all the way, because they’re still right in the mix.”
