UCL: Theo Walcott tells Arsenal signing to make after Porto defeat



Former Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has reckoned the Gunners need to sign Ivan Toney from Brentford following their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg 1-0 defeat against FC Porto on Wednesday.

Arsenal lost against Porto at the Estadio do Dragao after a late goal from Galeno.

Mikel Arteta’s side will face the Portuguese side in the return leg next month.

Speaking on BBC, Walcott said:


“I am a big fan of a certain Brentford striker [Toney ] who I won’t name. It’s really quite obvious to see there with all the set pieces, Arsenal are a really big team, but if you have got someone like that in your team as well.

“Missing [Gabriel] Jesus tonight as well who is a different sort of No.9, again, there is no one else to call upon. Kai Havertz is not a striker, I think he has done really well but I don’t think he’s a standard No.9.”

He added,”That is something I feel that Edu and Mikel will be discussing in the summer, I’m pretty sure about that.”

Toney has been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea in recent months.
