Arsene Wenger believes that Arsenal will make the right signings this summer to build a team capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

Wenger announced last month that he will be stepping down as Arsenal boss at the end of the season to bring an end to his 22 years in charge of the north London club.

Attentions will now inevitably turn towards the summer transfer window and the signings the Gunners will look to make, as well as who the next manager of the club will be.

Wenger’s side have had to come to terms with the disappointment of being knocked out of the Europa League by Atletico Madrid on Thursday night, meaning that there will once again be no Champions League football at The Emirates next season.

And the Frenchman feels that the Gunners will make the right signings this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of mounting a Premier League title challenge next term.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Thursday night, Wenger said: “Now for the club, they’ve got some time to think about what to do for next season.

“I think there are some good ingredients in our team and they will bounce back.

“These players have quality and with the right additions in the summer, they have the ingredients to compete next year.”

Arsenal have not lifted the Premier League trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.

The Gunners have, though, won the FA Cup in three of the last four years under Wenger.
