Former Arsenal legend Ian Wright has revealed which three players he would like Arsene Wenger to go out and buy in the summer, suggesting that the trio could turn us into Premier League champions.
Whilst we have finished the season strongly, there is a very strong argument to suggest that the league title is beyond us. However, our winning run, which began in February, should provide us with some valuable momentum heading into next season, which – with the right signings – could be crucial in twelve months.
The 51-year-old – who spent a couple of the latter years of his career working under Wenger – took to Twitter to suggest that we should sign Raphael Varane, Blaise Matuidi, and Edinson Cavani in the summer.
If I were Wenger, I’d go for Varane, Matiudi & Cavani this summer. That wish list could win us the title, agree? http://t.co/JMKzJagxpU

With an already strong squad in the areas that these players would come into, perhaps it is no surprise that there has been a mixed reaction from Gunners fans.
@IanWright0 not Cavani

@IanWright0 cavani and matuidi yeah. Varane will go Chelsea next year
- Arsenal keeping tabs on €40m Italy star after ‘outstanding’ season
- Where Arsenal would have finished in the league without VAR
- Arsenal’s top Hector Bellerin replacement is now available for £30m

@IanWright0 Agreed. Apart from Varane. Quality player but we have enough defenders I feel.

@IanWright0 1000% agree 3 solid signings like that is exactly what he needs to do.

@IanWright0 might aswell have a run at Messi and Veratti while we’re at it

@IanWright0 Cavani is not a great player, he’s an average one overrated by the masses

@IanWright0 well Varane and Cavani yes but I choose Isco as well.
