George Graham believes that Arsenal do not have the right squad to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Former Arsenal manager George Graham is not convinced that the Gunners have a good enough squad to challenge for the Premier League title.

Arsenal managed to secure a club-record £42.5m swoop for Real Madrid's Mesut Ozil, but they failed to lure a new striker to North London following reports of interest in Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez.

"I'm surprised Arsenal didn't get a couple more players in, especially a top-class striker with the money they supposedly had to spend in the summer," Graham told talkSPORT.

"They needed a centre-forward. If you are going to win it [the title] you need a centre-forward that is going to get you 20 league goals, not 20 cup goals."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is likely to hand Ozil his debut against Sunderland this weekend.
