The Gunners priority is to return back to Champions League
Arsenal endured an underwhelming season as they failed to win any silverware in Arsene Wenger’s final campaign. They finished 6th in the Premier League, reached the Carabao Cup final and the Europa League semi-final.
Unai Emery has been appointed as the new manager of the Gunners and is charged with the task of returning the club to the European elite while challenging for major honours.
The Spaniard is expected to be busy in the summer transfer window in order to strengthen the squad for next season and has already completed the signing of Stephan Lichsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus.
Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman believes the clubs need to make at least 3 more summer signings in order to return to the top 4 and be more competitive.
The ex-England international told Omnisport as quoted by Goal: “You’ve got to progress on the season before and we were out of the top four and we were getting left behind by quite a few of the big clubs.
“We need to regroup, have a little restructure of the team and then push on, get into the Champions League again and try and improve on that each season.
“It’s not going to be easy because the big guns are quite a way ahead at the moment. We need steel in the team.
“We need a couple of defenders, dominant defenders, and a dominant midfield player.
“I think the forward side of it, you can leave that alone because we’ve got a lot of firepower there. I’m just a little bit worried about the defence and the art of defending.”
The club have already been linked to host of midfielders and defenders, while they are also trying to tie Aaron Ramsey down to a new contract.
