Aaron Ramsey is fully expecting Arsene Wenger to beef up his Arsenal squad with “quality signings” as the Gunners look to challenge for silverware next season.

The north Londoners pipped local rivals Tottenham to a fourth-place finish on the final day of the season to secure qualification for next term’s Champions League.

Ramsey, 22, admits it was a tough season for Wenger’s men, who were dumped out of both domestic cup competitions by lower league opposition and lost in the Champions League last 16.

But the Wales international says that the Arsenal boss is determined to strengthen his squad with top players over the summer.

“We had a difficult season but thank God we fought our way back to the Champions League,” Ramsey told Goal.com.

“Tottenham gave us tough competition but finally we beat them on the tape for the Champions League slot.

“We must now start planning for next season and I know Arsene will beef up the squad with quality signings. That is the way to go and hopefully we will be able to challenge for top honours come next season.

“We need a trophy now and next season I have strong belief that Arsenal will not disappoint.

“We must end this long wait and win a trophy. We currently have a strong team and with a few additions I know we will deliver the top prize.”

Ramsey made 21 Premier League starts for Arsenal last season and scored his only top-flight goal in the 4-1 win over Wigan Athletic last month.
