Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has questioned Arsenal's morale-boosting deal for Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil.

King Kenny wrote in the Mirror: "A couple of things about it interest me, though.

"The first is that, with Ozil, Arsene Wenger has ­strengthened a position where Arsenal were already strong.

"He has not addressed other positions you might have expected to be a bigger priority.

"Centre-back would be one of those and even though striker Olivier Giroud has started the season impressively, it would be better if there was someone else up there to give him competition or fill in if he gets injured."
