Arsene Wenger has urged the next Arsenal manager to make the “right additions” to transform the Gunners into title challengers next season.

The Gunners boss is preparing for his final game in charge of the north London side after announcing that he will be stepping down at the end of the campaign.

Arsenal are yet to announce who will be taking over from Wenger at The Emirates as the north London club begin their search for a new manager.

The north London side are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the summer transfer window gives the new manager the chance to bolster his squad.

And Wenger feels that the north London side are not far away from being able to mount a title challenge next season with the right signings.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, Wenger said: “I think it is better I don’t speak publicly about the next manager because I’m not involved in the story and I do not want to put any pressure on the club to choose this guy or this guy and give already a handicap to the guy who comes in. I am nothing to do with that.

“I just think he inherits a team that is much better than people think it is.

“I’m convinced, you can see the togetherness of this team is special and with the right additions this team will challenge next year.”

Arsenal will take on Leicester City in midweek, before Arsenal head to Huddersfield for their final Premier League game of the season on Sunday afternoon.

The north London side, who are sixth in the table, have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
