Arsenal Should Sign Isak, Watkins, Says Walcott

Published

on

Former Arsenal forward, Theo Walcott, has called on manager Mikel Arteta to acquire a proven Premier League striker during the summer transfer window, mentioning Newcastle’s Alexander Isak and Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins as ideal candidates.


Last season, Arsenal closely contended with Manchester City for the Premier League title.

But the Gunners ended up second to Pep Guardiola’s side for the second consecutive year.


To enhance their title aspirations, the Premier League North London club are expected to be active in the transfer market this summer.

“Arsenal did great, they competed throughout the whole season and learnt a lot from previous mistakes,” Walcott told The Sun.

“I think what Mikel Arteta has done and the atmosphere at Arsenal is incredible. What we are missing is a striker, and to have that balance on the bench.


“I’m looking at someone like an Alexander Isak or an Ollie Watkins who’s been established in the Premier League.

“We may look abroad but I’m a big believer in someone who is proven in the Premier League.”
