Arsenal legend, Paul Merson, has urged the club to sign Everton striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, in the January transfer window after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s disciplinary breach.
Aubameyang has gone six games for Arsenal without a goal.
He was left out of the match-day squad as Arsenal defeated Southampton 3-0.
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, was forced to deny a rift had developed with his captain during his pre-match press conference on Friday.
But regardless of their relationship, Merson believes the Gunners should make a ‘massive’ bid for Calvert-Lewin in January.
“Arsenal need to go out and buy Calvert-Lewin and put in a massive bid for him,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“They need a focal point up front who is good and strong.
“It’s the Arsenal. Where would he go? He can’t stay at Everton. Are they bigger than Arsenal? Tell me a reason they are a bigger club than Arsenal?
“Arsenal are going to finish above them, if Calvert-Lewin goes there, they could get in the top four, surely? He holds the ball up.”
