There are very few Arsenal fans that would disagree that Unai Emery has done an excellent job so far this season, considering the resources he has had to use and the dire amount of injuries he has had to contend with. But although we are still in the fight for the Top Four, we are still a long way from competing for the title. According to the Gunners legend David Seaman, the only way we will get closer next season is by making some big signings in the summer. Seaman told Yahoo: “Arsenal, if they’re going to challenge for the title next season, they need to make some signings,”
“Whether that happens or not we will wait and see because we don’t know what sort of funds they’ve got.”
“There have been rumours about only £44 million. That ain’t enough, it is never going to be enough.
“If you are going to challenge for that league title you have got to spend big, and Arsenal need to do that.”
Going by our actions in the January window (no money at all!), it doesn’t bode well for the summer, but I guess that maybe Kroenke will surprise us all and stump up the cash for a couple of world-beaters, but I’m not holding my breath!
