Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has called on Arsene Wenger to add top quality talent to his Arsenal squad this summer to build for a title push next season, with the likes of Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba, Petr Cech and Diego Godin players he should be chasing.
The Gunners have been 2015’s form team in the Premier League, but early season woes have cost them what would be an almost certain chase for the big prize.
Regardless of their recent run, the Gunners trail leaders Chelsea by 10 points and could well see that gap extended this weekend after the two sides have played.
Wenger has shown a willingness to spend big in recent transfer windows to land both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, but Carragher believes that he’ll have to do it all over again to build a side capable of taking on England’s big hitters.
In fact, the Merseyside hero feels that the Frenchman needs Juventus’ Pogba, Real Madrid striker Benzema, Atletico Madrid enforcer Godin and Cech of Chelsea:
“This is the summer when Arsenal must go for it and make the big additions that will stop them being nearly-men,” he wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“Wenger still needs to buy a new No 1 if they are to be title challengers. Petr Cech would be an ideal candidate to come in.
“Why doesn’t he go for Paul Pogba? If they needed to sign Ozil two years ago, their need to sign Pogba this summer is even greater. Diego Godin of Atletico Madrid is 29 and at the peak of his powers. He would be ideal at the heart of the defence.”
“Imagine what Luis Suarez, Sergio Aguero or Karim Benzema could do for Arsenal?”
