Arsene Wenger eyes title challenge

Be ambitiousArsene Wenger believes Arsenal could push for the title next season as their rivals get ready to start the campaign with new managers.

The Gunners have again been way off the pace in the race for the title this season as Manchester United walked away with it and they need three points against Newcastle today just to guarantee a top-four finish.

Making sure they see out the season with a win against the Magpies is the main focus but Wenger cannot help but look ahead to next season and believes all the chopping and changing at Manchester United, City and Chelsea could play into their hands.

All three clubs will have new managers on board at the start of next season and Wenger says the appointments could go either way.

“There is an opportunity for us,” Wenger revealed. “The change of manager might not work everywhere. So you can have a little advantage on some teams.

“Although Jose Mourinho coming back doesn’t look to be a completely new experience, Pellegrini coming into a new country? It’s difficult, yes. It’s very difficult to predict how it will work.”

Reports claim Wenger could have as much as £100million to spend on new players in the summer but his chances of landing top class players will hinge on clinching a place in the Champions League.
