In Focus: Arsenal priorities in the right place this summer

As reported by The Telegraph, Arsene Wenger has held talks with Arsenal chiefs and agreed what positions the club will try to sign players for this summer.

What’s the story?

After a disappointing season in which yet another Premier League title bid fell by the wayside, Arsene Wenger knows the pressure is bigger than ever before to deliver success at the Gunners.

In order to challenge for major honours, Arsenal required a big transfer window this summer, so fans will be heartened to know the Emirates boss has already agreed with club officials what kind of players they need to sign.

In a story about Ivan Gazidis potentially moving to MLS, The Telegraph report that the club held a transfer summit last month in which it was agreed the club would sign a striker, a wide player, a central defender, a central midfielder and a left-back.

That will be welcome news to Gunners fans everywhere who have felt the club lack depth across the team and have been frustrated with performances in these areas all season.

The agreement shows that whatever happens this summer, Arsenal at least have their priorities in the right place and know exactly what they need in order to compete with the likes of Chelsea next season.
