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.
