Lack of Arsenal attacking depth has Parlour worried

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour feels Arsene Wenger’s squad is short on out-and-out attacking quality.

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour feels Arsene Wenger’s squad is short on out-and-out attacking quality.

With Lukas Podolski out with a severe hamstring injury, the Gunners are left with just Olivier Giroud in the strikers position and Parlour suggests that is not enough for a team to challenge for the title.

"I'm worried about the forward line," Parlour told The Daily Star. "Giroud was excellent against Spurs (in the 1-0 North London derby win).

"But if he does get a niggle or gets injured, then the next player that can play there is Theo Walcott because Lukas Podolski is out injured.

"It's the only position I am worried about. If Giroud does get hurt, they are going to be light.

"They got (Mesut) Ozil in – great. But could they have signed a striker as well?"
