Arsenal legend urges Arteta to ‘gamble’ in transfer market
Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has urged Mikel Arteta to “gamble” in the transfer window in order to fire the club back into the Champions League.
The Gunners have missed out on Champions League football next season, with Europa League qualification far from certain going into their final two Premier League games.
And former Arsenal midfielder Parlour says the club will have to spend this summer, despite felling the pinch due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Investment will be very important,” Parlour told The Sun. “To get back into the Champions League, which is massive revenue, it probably takes a bit of a gamble. More quality of players.
“To have any chance to break back in the top four you have to spend money.”
