SHOCKING NEWS: Arsenal legend Ian Wright issues transfer DEMAND after Liverpool defeat, Arsenal legend Ian Wright has sent a warning to his former club saying they need to sign a “killer” after the Gunners fell to a 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Liverpool despite their first-half domination.

Even though Arsenal dominated the first half of their FA Cup match against Liverpool, the Gunners lost 2-0, and legend Ian Wright feels his old team needs to sign a "killer."


During Gabriel Jesus’ absence, summer signing Kai Havertz was positioned centrally and missed several key opportunities in the initial 45 minutes, failing to capitalize on defensive errors by Liverpool. In the second half, Jurgen Klopp’s team regained control, benefitting from a Jakub Kiwior own goal and sealing the win through a 95th-minute strike by Luis Diaz. This FA Cup exit marks only the third time since 1996 that Arsenal has been eliminated at the Third Round stage, highlighting their current plight with three consecutive losses, echoing a similar sequence in April 2022 against Crystal Palace, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Southampton.

The recent slump has seen Arsenal triumph in just one of their last seven matches across competitions, representing their poorest seven-game win record since Arteta’s takeover from Unai Emery. Ian Wright, an Arsenal legend present at the Emirates during their 2-0 loss to Liverpool, expressed a pressing need for a proficient striker, emphasizing missed opportunities by Havertz, Martin Odegaard, and Reiss Nelson in the first half.

Despite their solid defensive performance this season, Arsenal’s offensive efficiency has notably declined compared to the 2022-23 campaign, highlighting the evident absence of a lethal goal scorer. To address this deficiency, Arsenal eyes potential January transfers for Ivan Toney and Dominic Solanke. However, the successful acquisition of either player remains uncertain. Meanwhile, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen emerges as another target, although discussions regarding a pre-agreement move to Chelsea add complexity to Arsenal’s pursuit of his signature.
