Former centre-half urges club to bring defensive reinforcements to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal legend Tony Adams has urged the club to spend big at the back this summer.
The Gunners have been linked with a host of new forwards since pipping rivals Tottenham to fourth place and sealing Champions League football for another season, but Adams believes boss Arsene Wenger must strengthen his defence in order to end an eight year trophy-drought.
“The best players and the best teams win championships,” Adams told Sky Sports.
“Lately Arsenal have become very solid – Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker have gained a confidence together, but defensively I think they are still short – I’d like to see them sign another centre-back, a couple of full-backs and possibly a keeper.”
Wenger has been linked with moves for Swansea’s Ashley Williams as well as QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar this summer but a striker appears to be the Frenchman’s top priority, with Wayne Rooney, Gonzalo Higuain and Stevan Jovetic all reportedly on Wenger’s radar.
The 63-year-old has not won any silverwear since Arsenal’s victory over Manchester United in the FA Cup final back in 2005.
And Adams, who played nearly 700 games for the north London club, added: “The fans are desperate for a trophy of some sort.
“I would like the players to get used to winning; if you have never had that experience of crossing the line as a winner you don’t know what it is like to be a winner.”
