Chicago Bulls small forward Luol Deng believes that Arsenal are just one striker away from winning the premier League.

Deng, who is an avid 'Gooner', has admitted that he has been really 'proud' of the north London team, who currently sit top of the Barclays Premier League table on 28 points after 12 highly-convincing performances. 

The 28-year-old shares the belief of many that the current side are lacking in attacking options however, and are perhaps just one striker short of matching the same success of the Arsenal 'invincibles' side who took the 2003/2004 season by storm.

The attacking partnership of Oliver Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott have only scored 13 goals for the club in all competitions, with Arsene Wenger hoping to land a big name striker in the January transfer window in the hope that the Gunners will win their first Premier league title in ten years.

It is widely believed that Wenger will try and tempt Karim Benzema with a move to the Emirates Stadium from Real Madrid, whilst also keeping tabs on Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.

Deng said in a press release sent to GiveMeSport: "I've watched a lot of games this season, and I'm really happy and proud of the guys.

"I still think that we need one more striker, but we're in a good position for sure. It's really exciting, but to win the league, and be as dominant as they used to be, I think Arsenal need one more striker."

Deng also feels that Southampton, who against all odds currently sit fifth in the domestic table, fully deserve their recent high praise. 

"Look at Southampton, when I watch them play it's almost like a basketball press offence. They just chase every ball, a bunch of players all the same size hunting like a pack of wolves," he concluded.

Arsenal are next in action in the Premier League against Cardiff on Saturday, whilst the Bulls face the Detroit Pistons tomorrow night.

Luol Deng will be in action for the Chicago Bulls versus the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night/Friday morning at 12.30am. Watch the game live or on-demand via NBA LEAGUE PASS at www.nba.tv
