Laurent Koscielny has come out to voice his opinion with the intentions of encouraging Arsenal to sign four more players so that they can compete for the title next season, Express reports.

The Gunners enjoyed early season success but began to suffer after losing Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshire through injury, leading to some massive defeats against Liverpool and Chelsea.

Koscielny believes Arsene Wenger needs to reinforce the squad with at least four more players to cope with all the games the side have to go through in order to keep them ready for the upcoming season.

“We’ll need a goalkeeper, a right back, a midfielder and a striker,” he said.

“It’s important to have a minimum of these four players so that we’ll be better able to challenge over the course of a whole season against teams like Manchester City, Chelsea or (Manchester) United.

“Winning the FA Cup can change things and lead to other players coming.

“Yes, we need to recruit a very, very good striker, because it’s important for us, for competition for places, because Olivier needs that to become even better.

“Having a striker who scores more than 30 goals a season can help us win the Premier League. Compared to the squads like Manchester City, even United and Chelsea, you can see there’s a certain difference.”
