Arsenal need two signings to launch title challenge, says Harry Redknapp

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp doesn't think Arsenal are too far away from title challenge

Arsenal are just two signings away from a Premier League title challenge next season, according to Harry Redknapp.

The Gunners played out a goalless draw with Premier League leaders Chelsea at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

They are not easy to find, but if they can go and out and bring a bit more strength to the team [they can challenge for the title]

Arsene Wenger’s side are in second place but 10 points behind their west London rivals after the weekend’s stalemate.

Arsenal have been linked with Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling and Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels in recent weeks.

Speaking to talkSPORT on Tuesday morning, former Tottenham Hotspur manager Redknapp believes Arsenal need to strengthen their spine in the summer.

“Arsenal are not far short,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“I’m sure Arsene knows, but I think they need two or three players next year if they are really going to look to win the league.

“They need a bit of strengthening down the spine of the team. I think they need another central defender, a midfield player and a striker.

“They are not easy to find, but if they can go and out and bring a bit more strength to the team [they can challenge for the title]. They have certainly got lots of fantastic talented players there already.”

Wenger signed Alexis Sanchez in a £35m deal from Barcelona and snapped up £16m-rated England international Calum Chambers last summer.

The Arsenal boss delved into the transfer market in January after a string of injury problems among his defensive players.

The Frenchman agreed a £11.2m deal with Villarreal for uncapped Argentina centre-half Gabriel Paulista.
