Arsenal legend Ian Wright is not convinced Manchester City striker Erling Haaland would improve Arsenal despite scoring 47 goals in all competitions this season.
According to Wright, Haaland would ‘mess up the equilibrium’ in the Gunners attack.
“Progress the ball from the back… Thomas Partey… Odegaard… Saka… (Leandro) Trossard… Martinelli… (Gabriel) Jesus… so many different ways to hurt a team,” Wright told The Athletic.
“As much as I was really pleased to be somebody that was at the time the main goalscorer, and you do want somebody who’s scoring between 15 and 25 league goals a season, I believe that when you are able to spread the goals around, people can’t plan for it.
“Of course, you look at Erling Haaland. Magnificent. Amazing what he’s doing and good luck to him.
“But would I change what we’re doing for somebody who’s scoring goals like that? I don’t know.
“It may mess up the equilibrium of what’s going on. I’m not sure.”
