- 3 players Arsenal should sign to challenge for the title
Arsenal have shown some improvements from last season since Unai Emery took charge. The Gunners are now not afraid of top teams and could salvage a significant amount of points from the big boys such as Manchester United, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur.
However, consistency is still a serious issue for the North London outfit. They could win with a convincing result against unstoppable United while losing an embarrassing 3 goals to Ligue 1 mid-table side Rennes in the previous match.
Despite these problems, Arsenal could always improve their squad by digging deep into the next transfer window. With a few more high-profile additions, the Gunners could go from top-4 seekers to title contenders next season.
Here are 3 names that the North Londoners should consider signing when the transfer window opens in the summer:
#3 Nicolas Pepe
Nicolas Pepe has been a revelation in Ligue 1 since his breakthrough season at Lille. The Ivorian winger has been very productive this term, scoring 18 goals and providing 8 assists for Lille in 30 appearances across all competitions. Aside from defense, the flanks have also been an issue for Arsenal recently and the young winger would bring the spark that is needed in that department.
Denis Suarez has failed to gain a foothold at the club while Alex Iwobi has also struggled to find consistency. Hence, Pepe would instantly slot to Arsenal's starting lineup with his current level of productivity. The Gunners, however, would need to dig deep into their pocket to prise the starlet away from the Ligue 1 as the French outfit would demand a hefty fee to let go of their priced asset.
