Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that Arsenal is three or four players away from being a serious Premier League Championship contender in 2015-16.
The Liverpool legend told the Daily Star that although Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has captured the FA Cup more times than any other manager in history, he needs to add more superstars to the roster to make them a serious contender against Chelsea and Manchester City in the Premier League.
“Wenger has been and still is a great manager but the next step has to be a proper title challenge at least,” Carragher said. “You see the players coming off the bench today shows the squad strength but the first 11 still needs an upgrade in goal, centre-back, defensive midfielder and centre forward.”
Among the stars said to be on Wenger’s wish list for the upcoming transfer period are Columbian striker Jackson Martinez, disgruntled Chelsea goalie Petr Cech, Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal and Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.
“Arsenal in the last few months have looked like a top team and are only 3/4 players through the spine of the team away from Chelsea but, are those players out there?” Carragher asked. “If so will Wenger make that statement with his signings that says we’re going for the title like Jose Mourinho last year?”
Carragher played for the Reds from 1996 to 2013, winning two FA Cups – including a win over Arsenal in the 2000-01 FA Cup Final – and being named to the PFA Team of the Year in 2006.
