Arsenal captain keen on new striker

The Gunners have been criticised fro being too lightweight, following defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City in recent weeks.

“Throughout the game (against City) we had a lot of possession but didn’t really have anyone to go in behind the defenders, apart from Carlos Vela,” Fabregas told The Guardian.

“We had a lot of similar players who like the ball into their feet. Sometimes it’s true that you need a different kind of option.”
