Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has revealed that the Gunners need a transfer overhaul ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

The Arsenal legend talked about his former club and transfers while he was doing his punditry work with British radio TalkSport.

According to him, Manchester United are not the only major Premier League club in need of transfer revamp.

Ray Parlour said that Arsenal also need to rebuild their squad when this summer’s transfer window comes calling.

Arsenal suffered their first home league defeat of the season since the opening day of this Premier League campaign at the weekend.

The Gunners were beaten 3-2 by South London club Crystal Palace and the defeat was significant in the push for a top-four spot at the end of the season.

The defeat raised a lot of questions about the strength of the players outside the Arsenal first team.

Players like Mohamed ElNeny, Shkrodan Mustafi, Kostantinos Mavropanos and Carl Jenkinson were found wanting during the Crystal Palace game.

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke gave his team a first half lead before Gunners playmaker Mesut Ozil equalised for the home side very early in the second half.

Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur added a second and third goal for the visitors before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back for Arsenal in the last 13 minutes to setup a grandstand finish but Crystal Palace held on for the maximum points.

Wilfried Zaha

Arsenal missed out on the chance to boost their top-four hopes after they were beaten by fellow London club Crystal Palace at home.

The Gunners were stunned by the Eagles at home when a win would have taken them as far as third position on the table.

Arsenal finished on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller against Crystal Palace as they were beaten 3-2.

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke ended a 19-game goal drought to give his team a first-half lead against the Gunners.

Arsenal should have been given a penalty in the first half but the home players’ protest was incorrectly waved away by centre referee Jon Moss.

The hosts were lackadaisical in the first half and Arsenal manager Unai Emery made two changes which worked well in the first few minutes of the second half after Mesut Ozil scored the equaliser for his team.

Arsenal were in the ascendancy until centre back Shkrodan Mustafi produced a moment of madness to allow Wilfried Zaha score a second goal for the visitors.

James McArthur added a third goal eight minutes later to give Crystal Palace a two-goal cushion.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back for Arsenal in the final ten minutes to setup a grandstand finish but Crystal Palace held on to take on three points to secure Premier League safety while the Gunners’ position in the top-four is under serious threat from London rivals Chelsea who play at home to Burnley on Monday night.
