It would be typical of Arsenal to promise so much ahead of the summer transfer window, only to keep to form and fail to properly strengthen to squad, despite the financial resources available to the manager.

Arsenal only brought in three outfield players during last summer’s window, and even though the disappointments of the window as a whole were forgotten with Mesut Ozil’s arrival, the team were still desperately in need of reinforcements in attack and defence.

The need to replace and strengthen will be even greater this summer. But should Wenger and the club fail to act, this would be a ‘nightmare’ starting XI for Arsenal next season.
