Arsenal legend Ray Parlour believes that the Gunners should sign Newcastle star Papiss Cisse to replace Robin van Persie.
The Dutchman announced that he would not sign an extension to his contract that has 12 months to run and the Englishman believes that manager Arsene Wenger should sell quickly and replace quickly.
“What Arsenal have got to do now is try and get the best bidder,” Parlour told talkSPORT. “£25 million or £30 million, get as much money as you can and then reinvest the money in the squad.
“The most important thing for Arsenal fans is to reinvest that money in the club. Not just put it in the bank like they did with Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
“Let’s go out and make a key signing like Papiss Cisse from Newcastle and suddenly people will forget about Robin van Persie.”
