Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry revealed his thoughts on his former team’s current state.
According to The Express, Henry believes that the Gunners must sign more players to put themselves in Premier League title contention with Chelsea.
“I still think they need four players to get closer to Chelsea. I compare it to my generation,” Henry said. “I knew, for example, when I first arrived at Arsenal that if I was not performing after an hour, Dennis Bergkamp was on the bench sometimes or Kanu or Sylvain Wiltord or Davor Suker.”
Henry’s opinion is sure to hold plenty of influence, as he is arguably the greatest Premier League footballer of all time.
He scored a club record 174 goals for Arsenal in 254 appearances while leading Arsenal to two Premier League titles.
The Gunners will surely be doing whatever they can to dethrone Chelsea and return to champion status.
Chelsea took home the 2014-15 Premier League title, and Arsenal finished in third place, extending their title drought to 11 years.
While the Gunners finished in third place, they were still 12 points behind the Blues.
Although they have not met Henry’s ideal quota, Arsenal have made one signing.
They infiltrated their Premier League rivals by signing goalkeeper Petr Cech.
While this will not directly hurt the Blues as they still have Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic in the net, the Gunners received an upgrade in this position.
