Bergkamp urges Arsenal boss Wenger to buy striker

Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp feels Arsene Wenger needs to buy a striker in January.

Bergkamp has suggested that Arsenal might look to sign a striker in the January transfer window, but he has faith in Wenger and hopes they will end their long wait for silverware.

Bergkamp told the Telegraph: "He wants to win trophies of course. It's in his nature. There are probably more reasons why Arsenal hasn't been successful over the last few years than we know of.

"For a lot of years Arsenal has been a healthy club with a fantastic big stadium, and good football. But now we all feel that it's time that we leave that story behind us.

"You know, paying for the stadium, playing good football, bringing up a few good players. Now you feel 'OK, now it's time to get going, to really make an effort and win a trophy'.

"At some point the club was like: 'Let's get Champions League again for next year, and we'll get the money in again and build up and hopefully win a trophy'.

"But that didn't happen so now there is more pressure than ever. Can Arsenal go all the way and win that trophy? The signs are good.

"I still feel up front there should be a few more goals. Maybe in the winter transfer window they might look at that. But I think there is a chance to get to a higher level with the team."
