Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson feels Arsenal should buy Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.

Lawro wrote in the Mirror: "What an option he would give them - particularly with the chances they would create for him.

"He needn't worry about not getting game-time during the second half of the season in World Cup year.

"Olivier Giroud can't possibly play every game with Arsenal fighting for silverware on several fronts.

"Benteke would share the load, bully defences and give the Gunners the depth up front that they need."
