Paul Merson has made it clear that he feels Arsenal have not brought in adequate reinforcements in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners were linked with a whole host of players throughout the summer transfer window but the north London side ended up just bringing in Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac.

The north London side were reported to have made a late attempt to try and bring Thomas Lemar to The Emirates from Monaco but failed to lure the 21-year-old to the Premier League.

Arsenal, though, did manage to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil as they now look to regroup following a difficult start to the Premier League season.

But Merson was clearly less than impressed by Arsenal’s transfer dealings during the summer window.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Merson said: “Arsenal haven’t done enough in this window.

“They’ve bought a centre-forward when they already had one. They needed to buy defenders and they haven’t done it.

“As we saw against Liverpool the other day, they just aren’t good enough.”

Arsenal lost 4-0 to Liverpool last weekend to leave them in 16th place in the Premier League table.

The north London side will now look to get back to winning ways when they host Bournemouth at The Emirates after the international break next weekend.

The Gunners finished fifth in the Premier League table and won the FA Cup last season before Arsene Wenger signed a new two-year contract at the club.
