Arsenal once again fell short in this season's Premier League title race.

It was another frustrating end of the season for Arsenal who finished second in this season's Premier League behind Manchester City. 

It's expected that another big transfer window could be on the cards for the Gunners this summer as they look to end City's stranglehold on the biggest prize in English club football. 

One area where Arsenal could bolster is at striker, and former defender Bacary Sagna has suggested that the Gunners should poach a player from one of their biggest rivals. 

"I would love to see Marcus Rashford at Arsenal. I think if you added Rashford to Arsenal’s attack, with the pace that he has, Arsenal would destroy the opposition. Adding Rashford to an extremely talented squad would be a frightening prospect for Arsenal’s rivals," Sagna told CoinPoker

"Rashford is so quick. I think Arsenal having Rashford would enable Arsenal to have more variety in attack and I would love to see Gabriel Jesus and Marcus Rashford in the same team, pressing with so much intensity. It would be a brilliant capture and I think there is room in the squad for a player of Rashford’s ability because Gabriel Jesus won’t be able to play every game and Kai Havertz can also play in a number of roles.

"Rashford joining Arsenal would be a wonderful signing for the club and a real statement of ambition."

Rashford had an underwhelming season with United scoring just seven goals in his 33 appearances in the Premier League and this poor run of form has led to rumours of a possible exit, and if Arsenal do end up signing him, it will be some statement from the North London club.
