But former goalkeeper Wilson believes Wenger can have no excuses, adding that the current 25-man squad is arguably the 64-year-old’s best of his 18 years in charge at Arsenal.
“I look through the Arsenal squad now and I would say they are very close to having the best overall squad [of Wenger’s reign],” Wilson told talkSPORT.
“I’m talking about throughout the 25, 26 players I have seen. OK, you haven’t got a Patrick Vieira, a Thierry Henry, a Dennis Bergkamp, but these things happen a little bit in cycles.”
Wilson added that Wenger’s men are still some way behind current champions Manchester City and title favourites Chelsea.
“I think this is a team in creation still,” Wilson added.
“There’s a wonderful basis of some really talented British players. That is going to come to fruition in the next two or three years, as long as we can keep them together.
“Obviously if you look at where we are at the moment against the likes Bayern Munich, and Chelsea and Mancester City, they are a level ahead at the moment and that’s where we need to get to.”
