Robert Pires: Arsenal don't need any more signings, Granit Xhaka and Jamie Vardy are enough


Former Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires says Granit Xhaka and the potential arrival of Jamie Vardy could be enough for his former club to challenge for the title next season.

The Frenchman admits that the Premier League will be tougher next season after Pep Guardiola's appointment at Manchester City and Manchester United's decision to opt for Jose Mourinho.

But he also believes that the Gunners might not need massive changes in the squad to succeed next season.

"[Granit] Xhaka is a great signing and to be honest, I'm not sure how many more players are needed," Pires is quoted as saying by Metro.

"A lot is said about Arsenal going forward and if you look at goals scored, they were only a few goals off finishing top of that chart, [Jamie] Vardy's addition could help next year.

"The league will be more difficult, especially with the arrivals of Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte [at Chelsea], plus you cannot ignore [Jose] Mourinho's appointment.

"You expect Mourinho to get Manchester United to compete again. His rivalry with Wenger was one the most eagerly awaited clashes from the last decade of the Premier League."
