Club legend: Why Arsenal desperately need top quality signings if they are to win the title next season


Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman says top quality signings are a must if the Gunners are to fight for the title next season.

The 52-year-old insists that boss Arsene Wenger is still the one to manage the club but has to change his transfer philosophy if the Gunners are to be competitive next season.

"Arsenal had a good season. It wasn't brilliant because we didn't win anything, but to finish second is a great achievement," Seaman told Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

"But there are still doubts; doubts over the manager and the team and whether it can push on.

"For me, Arsene is the best. I love the guy and I certainly don't want to see him leave. I've worked with him and know how good he is.

"More and more fans getting on the 'Wenger Out' bandwagon… and I'm just desperate for him to win the league again just to shut everybody up.

"I think the only way you would be able to stop that [the fan backlash] is by signing top quality players. We need the finished article, not the young, up-and-coming guys.

"But what frightens me, is that if the club don't go out and buy these players in the summer, and Arsene does leave, where does that leave Arsenal?

"A lot of fans think that the base that Arsene has set is the standard, but it won't be. It will fall below that if we get a new manager in."
