Arsenal legend, David Seaman, revealed that the club’s current problem under coach Mikel Arteta is that they only have one striker at the moment after Gabriel Jesus was injured.
Seaman also warned Arteta that he risks angering striker Eddie Nketiah with his style in the January transfer window.
Arteta is supposed to want to sign a new striker in January to provide cover for injured Jesus.
Jesus may be out of action for three months after suffering a knee injury in the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
However, in Jesus’ absence, Nketiah has scored four goals in four matches since the conclusion of the World Cup.
But Arsenal could still sign a new striker this month, and Seaman believes that could be a mistake.
“The problem you have is that you don’t know how long Gabriel Jesus will be out,” Seaman told talkSPORT.
“If this is a short-term injury, then no, you don’t [need a replacement]. If it’s in the long run, then you have to think about it because you don’t want Jesus and Nketiah back in full fitness and then have another striker plus.
“Is that bothering any of the forwards? I’m sure it’s going to piss off a point if he doesn’t get playing time. It’s tough, and it all depends on Jesus’ injury condition, how long will he be out?”
He added, “But the problem is that we only have one striker and dealing with those many months until the return of Gabi Jesus is not easy.
“We have to make the most of the players we have at the moment, but it would be great if we could get some reinforcements.”
