EPL: Arteta reveals striker Arsenal want to sign

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has spoken about the profile of the striker the club is looking to sign in the summer.

Arteta sanctioned the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona in January, after stripping him of the captain’s armband in December.

Current captain Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nkeitah are both out of contracts at the end of the season.

Arteta has now confirmed that a new striker will surely be brought in.

When asked by Sky Sports about who he is looking for, the Spaniard said: “He puts the ball in the net, that’s priority number one.

“Goal threat. Any successful team needs enough goal threat in the squad. Without it, you have nothing. You can play good football but you need enough goal threat in the team.

“The other thing is that he has to complement the other people we have, personally and on the pitch, and for that, we need the right profile.

“We need a profile where you can exploit his qualities at the same time as the qualities we already have, so we don’t have to transform our way of playing again to adapt to that specific player.

“He has to have a certain age, a certain level of experience, and he has to be able to come here and play under the pressure of being at Arsenal.”
