David Ornstein reckons Gunners will only move for a backup centre-back or holding midfielder…

Arsenal fans may be left disappointed come September 2nd when the transfer window closes, with respected and reliable BBC journalist David Ornstein claiming that it’s unlikely the Gunners will sign a striker, despite the injury to Olivier Giroud.
