Arsenal Legend Ian Wright Wants the Club to Make an Ambitious Bid for Sergio Aguero in January

Published on: 30 October 2016

BT Sport pundit Ian Wright has urged his former club to try and sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero in the January transfer window, as Arsenalbid to win their first Premier League title since 2004.

The Gunners have been in fine form in recent weeks, most notably in their last match where they claimed a 4-1 win over Sunderland. The victory helped Arsene Wenger's team keep in touch with leader's Manchester City and Wright has now urged the North London club to snatch their rival's talisman in January to ensure they land the title, come the end of the season.

Speaking on BT Sport last Saturday, as quoted by theSport Review, Wright said:What I'd like to happen is for Pep [Guardiola] to continue to mess around with Aguero and Arsenal to buy him.

Then we'll just win the league off the back of that."

Speculation was rife last week that City boss Pep Guardiola was considering a clear out of the current squad and that Argentina striker Sergio Aguero, was one of the players on that very list.

Having sat on the bench for City's previous matches, Aguero returned to the starting XI for the trip to West Brom last weekend and inspired Guardiola's men to a 4-0 win that finally ended a run of six games without a win.

Although Arsenal themselves have numerous options upfront, many feel the Gunners lack a world class striker and that this could hinder anytitle challenge they make this year.

Despite an indifferent injury record, Aguero would certainly guarantee Wenger's men goals but its unlikely that the manager would consider such a move, with current forward Alexis Sanchez in good form so far this season.

And even if Wenger were to contempl such a deal, its questionable whether Manchester City would even considerselling to one of their direct title rivals in the first place.
