Jermaine Pennant has told TalkSPORT (Thursday, 08:15am) that Arsenal need to copy Liverpool in the transfer market and bring in a big-name goalkeeper and defender – but explains why it will be difficult to do that.
The Gunners produced an excellent performance and defensive display to keep out Liverpool on Wednesday night, securing a 2-1 win and keeping any faint hopes of European football alive.
With Manchester City’s European ban being lifted, it looks unlikely that seventh and eight place will deliver Europa League football. That will affect finances at The Emirates, and could see a number of players depart.
Former Arsenal and Liverpool winger Pennant believes The Gunners need to mirror what Liverpool have recently done in the transfer window – in signing Virgil van Dijk and Alisson – but explains why that will be difficult.
