Arsenal don't need David Villa to finish in top four, insists Parlour

Sevilla 2-3 Barcelona : David Villa
Arsenals hopes of finishing on the top four do not hinge on whether they are able to sign Barcelona striker David Villa before Thursdays transfer deadline, according to club legend Ray Parlour.

Arsene Wengers side go into Wednesdays crucial meeting with fellow Champions League aspirants Liverpool four points adrift of fourth-placed Spurs.

Despite the Spanish sides insistence that the former Valencia man is not for sale, the Gunners continue to be heavily linked with a deadline day move for the 31-year-old.

Parlour, however, a vital member of Wengers last title-winning side in 2004, believes that the recent form of summer recruit Olivier Giroud, who has scored four goals in his last two games, means that a failure to secure Villas services would not represent a terminal blow to his old sides ambitions.

I really thought he might go and strengthen, at least bring in one player in, but it appears David Villa didnt want to come to A rsenal," he told talkSPORT

Im sure the scouting system is working hard to find players for Arsene Wenger, but nothing has fit the bill.

It looks like hes not going to buy anyone at the moment and hell have to go until the end of the season with the squad he's got.

"If Olivier Giroud can bang a few goals in then he can fire them into fourth place."
