We enjoyed a largely superb season in 2014/15, finishing the campaign particularly strongly. We will be hoping to compete for the Premier League title next season though, and to do that we may well need signings.
There are a number of positions that needs strengthening in the current squad, and we need Arsene Wenger to address our deficiencies if we are to challenge the likes of Chelsea.
Here are the five positions that need strengthening most in the current Arsenal squad, and five ideal signings to fill the voids:
5) Left-back – Jose Luis Gaya
- [Player Ratings] Arsenal 1-2 (2-2) Olympiakos – Lacazette & Ozil Flop On Woeful Night For Gunners
- [Match Report] Arsenal 1-2 (2-2) Olympiakos – Woeful Gunners Suffer Early Europa League Exit
- [Confirmed Lineups] Arsenal (1-0) Olympiakos – Pepe, Ozil, Auba, Laca Start In Strong Team
Arguably one of the most promising left-backs in football at the moment, the young Spaniard would be a top quality addition.
We currently have two solid left-backs at our disposal, but it is arguably a position we are lacking real quality in. Nacho Monreal has usurped Kieran Gibbs as first choice, but we could unquestionably improve on both men.
Jose Luis Gaya has only recently signed a contract extension with Valencia, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get him. We may have to pay over the odds to acquire his services, but with Hector Bellerin on one side and Jose Luis Gaya on the other, we would have two of the most deadly young full-backs in the game today running up and down our flanks.
