FINALLY : Arsene Wenger drop hints over HIS future at Arsenal
Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal are in need to sign one or two players to reach the same level as 2016/17 Premier League champions, Chelsea.For the first time in 20 years, Arsenal have finished the season outside the top-four and there has been talks that it is time for Wenger to leave the club, however, Frenchman looks positive for the upcoming season and back his side to challenge Chelsea next season.
Arsenal have ended up 18 points behind from current champions Chelsea, but despite their shortfalls this term, the 67-year-old manager insists he only needs two ‘top quality’ signings to win the Premier League title.
‘I think this group of players is good enough to come back,’ said the Arsenal boss.
‘They have learned a lot and they have gone through difficult periods this season and they have bounced back in a very strong way.
‘I think that will help them, absolutely, next season.
‘But first I think we have to keep 90 per cent of these players together and find one or two more who strengthen the group but we don’t need a lot. We don’t need many. But we need maybe top quality.’
Signing two quality players might not be enough for Arsenal to dominate in England next season as Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil have been heavily linked with an exit from Emirates Stadium after missing out Champions League football.
