Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says Arsenal's big-spending plans over the past few campaigns makes them title contenders this season.
The Gunners completed the £42.4m signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 and the £35m signing of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona last year.
And Mourinho says Arsenal have no excuses not to challenge for the title next season.
"I think they bought a fantastic goal-keeper and that is a position which is very important in a team," the Portuguese told reporters.
"Every club is a club and we don’t need to speak about them but if you add up the amounts clubs have spent in the last three or four years, I think maybe you will find a surprise.
"If you put [Mesut] Ozil plus Alexis Sanchez, plus [Calum] Chambers, plus [Mathieu] Debuchy you will maybe find a surprise. It’s a fantastic squad; lots and lots of good players, a fantastic goal-keeper. I think they are more than ready to be a title contenders.
"[If they get away with the idea that they don’t spend big money?] This is the easiest thing to do – I don’t do it.
"Get a calculator. That is the easiest things, it leaves no space for speculation. If you want to be honest, objective and pragmatic it is the easiest job for a manager or journalist to do.
"If a manager is interested he can do it. I am not. But Diego Costa plus, Fabregas plus Begovic; Schneiderlin plus; Alexis Sanchez plus this one; Benteke plus Balotelli plus this one. It is easy and objective."
