Keown concerned about lack of additional striker at Arsenal

Former Arsenal defender and BBC football pundit Martin Keown has expressed concern over Arsene Wenger's failure to bring another forward to the Emirates

Arsene Wenger could yet be left regretting his decision not to sign another striker at Arsenal, according to Martin Keown.

Speaking on the BBC Football website, the former Gunners defender and pundit expressed some concerns at the club's failure to land another forward.

On a busy day of deadline day business, Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger were quiet, despite recent speculation linking the club with a whole host of big name strikers including Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani - as reported by the Metro.

And Keown believes that the failure to bring a top class forward to the club over the summer break could yet come back to haunt the French coach.

"There seems to be utter madness in the transfer window and Arsene Wenger has stepped away from it.,” he said.

"They badly needed a striker. Only time will tell if he is right but the early signs are that it is an area of weakness.”

Arsenal have scored three goals in their four Premier League games so far this season, with Olivier Giroud notching up one goal so far in the league while Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott have both so far failed to find the net in the top-flight this term.
