Arsene Wenger has admitted there will be a lot of transfer business to take care of after this season is brought to an end.
The Gunners are currently sitting outside the top four of the Premier League after a run of four defeats in five games and a humiliation against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Despite spending a record total amount on new signings last summer, Arsenal are in danger of ending a second season in a row without silverware.
That has prompted calls for Arsene Wenger to finally end his reign at the club, but the Frenchman appears to have other plans in mind.
According to Wenger, who looks set to remain at the Emirates stadium for another year, there will have to be some new additions to the squad this summer due to how the 2016/17 campaign has fallen apart.
“It’s a strange season because we played 20 games unbeaten, but I cannot sit here and say we have no flaws in our team, because we have,” the Gunners boss said on Thursday
For a man who is often cagey about his plans in the transfer market, Wenger was bold enough to admit this time that some spending has to be done.
“It [the squad] is a very strong basis, but the team needs to be strengthened, of course.” he added
