While Arsenal, despite the fact that the last few years has seen the financial shackles loosened a bit and some big transfers have come into the club, are still not up with the biggest spending clubs in the Premier League or Europe, there is an argument that the squad that Arsene Wenger has assembled has the quality to challenge for the title.
The Frenchman himself seems to think so, as reported by Sky Sports, so perhaps he has realised that for whatever reason he is not getting the best out of the Gunners we have got.
Le Prof appears fairly confident that the next manager in charge of Arsenal will have thw tools to compete once again with the likes of Man City and Manchester United, and I think that most of us expect to at least some improvement from the disappoint way that this season and the last have panned out.
Wenger said, “It’s a big job. The club has gone through the most difficult period in the last 10 years, building the stadium.
“I always felt that after 2016 that the club would be in a financial situation where we would compete again.
“What I could not predict is that clubs would move up another level financially that makes it more difficult now.
“But I still think Arsenal will come back and compete for the championship.”
Arsenal fans will expect more money to be spent on transfers this summer but you could argue that merely getting the best out of players like Koscielny, Lacazette, Aubameyang and all should be enough to get the Gunners back in contention for the EPL trophy. Do you believe that Wenger will be handing over an Arsenal squad with the right tools for the next boss to succeed with?
