Arsene Wenger is more than happy with the squad at his disposal right now and thinks it is more important to keep the players together and carry this brilliant end-of-season run into the next campaign.
When asked if he expected to need reinforcements during the transfer window, Le Prof revealed: “We have a big squad – the basis is there. We do not need to buy a number of players,”
“If we can get top, world-class players we will look at it, but we have a very strong squad already in number and we want to stay together and start well next season.
“I feel that we have made progress. Chelsea is a worthy winner this year because they have been the most consistent team of all.
“Let’s finish well, then prepare well for next season and give them a good fight.”
The Gunners are now unbeaten in their last ten Premier League games, and Wenger was very pleased with the facile win against Hull last night to maintain their pressure in the fight for second place: “We have found a better balance between going forward and defending in the second half of the season.
“I am very happy with the performance because we had a fluent game, we were pacey and we created many chances. Quite the amazing thing is that two of the goals we scored were deflections and the clear-cut chances we had, we didn’t score.
“But overall you could see there was a good dynamic in the team and our overall game was very good.”
Obviously we all want Wenger to bring in another marquee signing this summer, but is he right to say that we already have a squad cpable of winning the title?
