Arsenal trio Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky are all confident that the side can finally end the club's trophy drought next season and are adamant that they are genuine title contenders for the Premier League.

The last time Arsenal won the Premier League, neither of these three players are part of the squad as it was back in 2004 when the side went a whole campaign unbeaten - but since then they have fallen short of the title on several occasions.

Despite not actually winning the Premier League, they have consistently finished in the Champions League positions, something that didn't look likely in the last two seasons, but now the players feel it's time to push on and win some silverware.

Numerous players from the Arsenal ranks have been speaking out about potential summer signings with Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere both admitting that the place would be better with some big names coming through the door, but as of yet, the Gunners have only signed Yaya Sanogo from Auxerre, a French U21 international.

The Premier League outfit are currently taking part in their Far East tour for pre-season and have played two games already and scored 14 goals, picking up comfortable 7-0 and 7-1 victories over Indonesia and Vietnam respectively.

Talking ahead of one of the games, the Arsenal trio revealed their thoughts about a title challenge for the 2013/14 campaign.

"We have a really good squad and I trust in our chances and our qualities to fight for the title," France striker Giroud told Sky Sports.

Walcott added: "Instead of challenging for the Champions League I think we will be challenging for the title this year that's my desire and I'm sure everyone else is the same.

"If players come in its going boost the whole team but what we have at the moment is good enough to win anything I believe."

Czech midfielder Rosicky also commented: "It's very simple, we want to try to go for it and try to win the league."
