Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes the club should pursue Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe.

38-year old Parlour believes Defoe would be a great fit for the Gunners, much in the mould of old teammate Ian Wright, and feels the Spurs man has the experience to provide plenty of goals for his North London rivals.

“They do need a striker,” Parlour told talkSPORT.

“Marouane Chamakh found it difficult. He did well in the early parts of the season but went off the boil a bit.

“They should get someone who’s a little bit different, who can score a goal, like an Ian Wright. Jermain Defoe would be a good signing for me.

“Tottenham fans won’t like it but that’s how it goes these days. I was there when Sol Campbell signed and he was a great player for Arsenal.”
