Arsenal legend David Seaman has urged Wenger to further strengthen the squad before the transfer window ends next month.
The former goalkeeper believes Wenger will need to sign a new centre back and a centre midfielder if Arsenal are to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
Although Seaman is satisfied with Arsenal’s transfer business so far, he wants the club to strengthen the spine of the squad in order to take us to the next level.
“Arsenal need more players – more top-class players,” Seaman told Goal, as quoted by the Daily Cannon.
“They’ve got Lacazette, which is a good signing, but I still think they need a couple more. Whether they are in the pipeline I don’t know.
“I think they need a central midfield player – a holding midfielder – a Patrick Vieira type midfield player. One with a lot of presence and strength, with the ability to control games like Patrick used to.
“Then maybe a centre-half. Mertesacker is coming back now – I watched him play last weekend, and he looked as good as ever. I don’t think he’ll ever look as good as he did in the FA Cup final, that was brilliant to watch, but with over 100 caps for Germany, we know he can play.
“For Arsenal to win the league, I feel they’re a few players short, looking at other squads. I think they just need a couple.
“They’ve been there or there abouts for a long time now but never been in with a really good chance in the last few weeks of the season – so adding a couple of players might change that.”
Arsenal are already being linked with a new centre defender, with Virgil Van Dijk and Kalidou Koulibaly said to be on Wenger’s wishlist. And then Leon Goretzka and William Carvalho, two of Europe’s most talented center midfielder are also said to be on the club’s summer wish list.
