Arsenal have a track history of targeting Chelsea players who are not too needed again at the club, with Willian and David Luiz the two latest to make the switch from Chelsea to Arsenal. But a Gunners legend wants to change that status quo.

Arsenal started the season brightly but their early form has dropped, after few games into the season.

Arsenal legend Lee Dixon has now revealed that the Gunners should target a player like Chelsea’s Mason Mount who can work hard high up in midfield.

“That is a huge, almost total reliance on one player to get you a goal,” Dixon told the Handbrake Off podcast.

“No goals from anywhere else, although Lacazette has three in six he seems to have gone off the boil.

“No goals from midfield at all. No breaking midfield player that forces teams back like a Mason Mount or somebody running through the middle like that and breaking into the box.

“So, already the way that you can play with that, and I haven’t even mentioned the back four or five, then you’re limited in what you can achieve.”
