It has been a summer of change so far at The Emirates, with Unai Emery having been appointed as the north London club’s new manager following Arsene Wenger’s decision to stand down at the end of the season.
Arsenal are likely to be on the lookout for a number of signings this summer as they bid to try and build a squad at least capable of breaking back into the top four next season.
The north London club have missed out on Champions League qualification for the last two seasons running and they ended up sixth and without a trophy last term.
And former Gunners captain Adams has given his blunt take on how he thinks the north London club could struggle with recruitment this summer.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Adams said: “You are only as good as your recruitment. It’s all about getting the right players in this game.
“We’re going to have two see if the guys Ivan Gazidis has brought in are good in that market.
“It’s a market that’s very overcrowded and we’re probably down the pecking order in terms of finances.
“It’ll be difficult if they’re looking for European players – it’ll be quite tricky.”
Arsenal will be aiming to mount a challenge for the Premier League title in the seasons to come, with the Gunners not having lifted the top flight trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
