Arsenal legend Ian Wright has backed his former sides midfield setup and revealed that he believes the only areas in need of strengthening are the goalkeeper and striker positions.

Wright underlined that the likes of Mesut Özil have improved the Gunners midfield.

“In midfield, we are very strong with Aaron Ramsey, [Mesut] Ozil, [Jack] Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, and also [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain in midfield,” Wright was quoted as saying in ESPN.


“And up front we have Theo [Walcott], [Danny] Welbeck, [Alexis] Sanchez and Olivier. One more top-class striker to make it four up there would give us a very, very good chance.”
