Paul Merson wants Arsenal to make these four signings
The former Arsenal midfielder has identified four signings that Arsene Wenger needs to make in the summer transfer window
Paul Merson has pinpointed four positions that Arsenal need to strengthen in the summer transfer window.
The Gunners missed out on a top-four finish this term for the first time since Arsene Wenger took over the reins at the north London side back in 1996.
Arsenal ended the season with 3-1 win against Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday thanks to goals from Hector Bellerin, Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey.
However, the north London side still finished outside of the top four after Liverpool were 3-0 winners against Middlesbrough at Anfield.
Arsenal have been heavily criticised for a disappointing season under Wenger in the Premier League and the Champions League.
Formert Gunners midfielder Merson has identified four signings that Arsenal need to make in the summer transfer window to improve their squad ahead of the new season.
“I think Cech has been great, world class, but he’s coming towards the end, and they need a centre midfielder, a centre-forward and a centre-half. That’s your spine!” Merson told Sky Sports.
“If you’re needing that, it’s hard to get in this day and age.”
Arsenal lost 10-2 to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16.
The Gunners will take on Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley next weekend.
