‘Arsenal will be challenging for the title next season’.
Well how many times have we heard that statement before, only for the Gunners to fall short and finish the campaign without a trophy… in fourth? Yes many… but after ending their trophy-less drought with two FA Cup triumphs in the last two terms, it is only fair to say that for once, the statement could really come to fruition.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger used to have a philosophy of buying players with raw talent and developing them into quality stars, which was all fine and dandy until they decide that they need to leave the Emirates in order to win trophies. The departures of Samir Nasri, Cesc Fabregas, and Robin van Persie all prove that point, however the last two summers have been different.
First Wenger bought Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013, and last year signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona… and the two have drastically changed the squad for the better.
These are world class stars arriving from world class teams, and they ultimately were integral to the Gunners’ FA Cup wins. If another marquee star was to arrive, then you can definitely declare that Arsenal will be challenging for the title next season.
Here are FIVE SIGNINGS that will turn Arsenal into title challengers:
