Piers Morgan claims Arsenal will win the Premier League if they sign one player before deadline day

Piers Morgan claims Arsenal will win the Premier League if they sign one player before deadline day

Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has urged Mikel Arteta to sign a new player.

Piers Morgan has urged Mikel Arteta to sign one player to propel Arsenal to Premier League glory.

On Tuesday night, Arteta’s men arrived at the City Ground looking to close the gap on league leaders Liverpool with a win against Nottingham Forest.

After a tightly contested first half, Arsenal took the lead through Gabriel Jesus in the 65th minute before Bukayo Saka doubled their advantage in the 72nd minute.

With the Gunners seemingly cruising to all three points, Taiwo Awoniyi scored in the 89th minute to set up a grandstand finish but the visitors held on for three vital points.

Reacting after the match, Arsenal fan Morgan has named the player Arteta should sign before the January transfer window comes to a close on Thursday night.

He wrote on social media: “Good away win, Arsenal. Massive game next vs Liverpool on Sunday.

“Sign a striker, Mikel! Stick Toney upfront with Jesus and we’ll win the League.”

Morgan would like Arsenal to snap up Brentford striker Ivan Toney, who recently returned to action with a goal on the back of his ban by the Football Association.

On the back of their 2-1 win over Forest, Arsenal moved up to second place in the Premier League table, two points behind Liverpool who play Chelsea on Wednesday night.


Speaking to TNT Sports after the match, Jesus said: “We were there and controlled the game, but the best way to control them is to keep the ball in the third part of the pitch, we did well in the first half but we didn't score.

“Second half we scored so we controlled more of the game. It is all about trust, I arrived at the club with patience and desire to improve, I think I am doing good. Unfortunately I have been injured, but I don't want [that].”

He added: “I got kicked in training so I had some problems again, but I am working hard and doing everything to be on the on the pitch.

“The support of my team-mates is good. Today I was a little unlucky with one chance - I am happy they keep supporting me.”
