Adams wants Arsenal transfer spree

Tony Adams Arsenal defenderArsenal manager Arsene Wenger must spend some money and start challenging for titles, believes former skipper Tony Adams.

Adams spent 22 years with the Gunners, making over 500 appearances and picking up 10 major honours with the north London club, but he believes that Wenger will have to add to his squad if they are to dominate English football once again.

The Gunners overturned a seven-point gap on rivals Tottenham in the final stages of the season to secure fourth spot and Champions League football for a 17th consecutive term.

Although the French boss has been consistent in achieving a European finish, he has failed to help his side to win a trophy for eight years.

Adams said: “The best players and the best teams win championships.

“Lately Arsenal have become very solid and (Laurent) Koscielny and (Per) Mertesacker have gained a confidence together, but defensively I think they are still short – I’d like to see them sign another centre-back, a couple of full-backs and possibly a keeper.

“The fans are desperate for a trophy of some sort.”
