Arsenal legend Ian Wright has suggested that Leeds United need to sign a striker, as quoted in Football.London.
Wright made the comments following the FA Cup third-round tie between Arsenal and Leeds at the Emirates Stadium in North London on Monday evening.
Although Leeds were superb in the first half and dominated proceedings, Marcelo Bielsa’s side failed to score despite having a number of chances.
Mikel Arteta’s side scored 10 minutes into the second half, and that proved to be the difference between the two teams.
Football.London quotes Wright as saying about Leeds: “I thought Leeds were fantastic but it was going to take something for them to keep going at that pace and try to play at the pace they were.
“What we saw with Leeds is what they have had a problem with, the goalscoring side of things. If Leeds can get a goalscorer who gets 10 maybe 15 then they will be a problem for any team.”
Need for a striker
Bamford is the main striker at Leeds at the moment, but the former Chelsea and Nottingham Forest player is not at the Premier League level.
If the Whites get promoted to the Premier League, then they will have to invest in a quality striker.
Leeds are at the top of the Championship table at the moment with 52 points from 26 matches, level on points with second-placed West Bromwich Albion.
