Jamie Carragher says he can’t see Arsenal winning trophies or challenging for the Premier League title this season.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is yet to make any signings of note in the current transfer window, with French youngster Yaya Sanogo the sole arrival from Auxurre.

The 63-year-old Arsenal boss made two bids for want-away Liverpool striker Luis Suárez, but the Reds are unwilling to sell a key player to their top-four rivals.

And Carragher reckons the north London side will struggle to compete for silverware unless Wenger spends big in the coming weeks.

“Arsenal fans will be expecting more of the same because not a lot has changed,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“They’ve signed one young player from France – Yaya Sanogo – but that’s it, so you’d be worried about their ability to kick on.

“There was talk about them spending a lot of money and they still haven’t done it.

“It doesn’t look like Luis Suárez is going to go because Liverpool have said they’re keeping him and while I wouldn’t worry about them – because they’re a top-four team – if they are starting to think about winning trophies and challenging for the title then I’m sorry, I don’t see it happening.”
