Arsene Wenger needs to prove that he means business in the January transfer market, according to Kevin Campbell.

The Arsenal manager has come under increasing pressure in recent days after a lacklustre Gunners suffered a 3-2 loss to Stoke City at The Britannia on Saturday.

And former Arsenal striker Campbell reckons Wenger can silence his critics by buying the players that his squad so desperately need in January.

“Wenger can overcome this but the fans are frustrated,” Campbell told talkSPORT.

“Season after season after season everyone can see what the problem is but it doesn’t get addressed. And going to the likes of Stoke and not showing up until you’re 3-0 down is unacceptable.

“Arsene can ride out the storm. He’s very experienced and I know the players are rooting for him, but he has to address these problems.

“You never know which Arsenal will show up. One week they’re awful, the next they’re brilliant. They need some consistency.

“If Wenger is serious [about getting back to the top] he will go out and get who he needs in January. No messing around, go and get them, because Arsenal need them. They’ve needed it for years and it’s showing up [in their results], so go out and get them.

“Qualifying for the Champions League is not winning a trophy, and the fans want trophies. So unless you’re putting silverware on the sideboard you’re there to be shot at. And when the weakness of the team never gets addressed, and you expect the results to change, they never do.”
