Ian Wright has joined the long list of Ex-Gunners calling for the club to sign a new striker this summer, according to the Daily Star.
Fans and pundits have been calling for Wenger to sign a top striker to improve the squad and recent reports claim Wenger has prioritized signing a striker this summer and ex-Gunner Wright has urged the club to sign a striker like Harry Kane or Martial because of Ozil.
Wright believes a mobile striker like Kane and Martial will bring out the best of Ozil and the club will be more devastating combining the striker’s mobility with Ozil’s creativity.
“[Ozil] knows the striker is making a run and that type of player is how Dennis Bergkamp was, you make the run and the ball will appear.
“When you look at his stats if they did have Harry Kane or Anthony Martial or even Marcus Rashford you look at the way he moves,” he added.
“If they had someone like that, more clinical, someone who would get on the end of things, someone like a young Jermain Defoe, with Ozil you’re talking 30 goals a season.”
The club currently relies on Welbeck, Giroud and Walcott to lead the line upfront but many believes the club would be better with a top striker leading the line, The club has been linked with a host of top strikers already but we will have to wait until the summer and hope Wenger brings in a top striker when the transfer window officially opens
