John Hartson is unimpressed by Arsenal's strike-force.

The former Arsenal frontman believes Arsene Wenger’s side are in need of someone to score 25 goals a season, something Marouane Chamakh and Nicklas Bendtner are not capable of.

“Arsenal for me are very, very close,” he told talkSPORT. “Maybe a top striker – somebody who will stay in the box and score them 25 goals.

“They’ve got wonderful players but Chamakh and Bendtner for me are not quite good enough week in week out to play for Arsenal.”
