Arsenal: Time for Arsene Wenger to aim big?

The upcoming season looks very interesting for all clubs.

New managers leave Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City wondering what kind of a season is in store for them. Will it be a fight for the top spot or will the clubs struggle to gel with their new ways of playing?

Tottenham have the task of completing a successful season without their star man of last year Gareth Bale, who looks like he is on his way to Real Madrid.

There is also the task of staying in the Premier League itself with Cardiff, Crystal Palace and Hull all trying to beat the drop.

However, there is one team that haven't changed that much and now have the longest serving manager in the league - with Arsenal looking to end their trophy drought.

Over the last eight years the Gunners have suffered with no prizes at all. This could be blamed on Arsene Wenger not adapting his ways to fit into the modern game. It is no longer football, it has become a business.

However, in Arsenal's defence they could argue that the planning and building of the Emirates stadium wiped out the club's funds which they could of used to spend on players.

But now the stadium debts have been dealt with, it looks like Arsenal are merging back into genuine title contenders rather than just a Champions League spot every year.

With the new modifications of teams like the big clubs changing managers, Arsenal could use these changes to their advantage in getting ahead of every other team; both in games and the transfer window.

Three new players could transform Arsenal completely and will give them a high chance in ending the club's trophy drought. For a team to be successful they need a top class keeper.

Manchester United have had Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar, while David de Gea is well on his way to joining that elite list of stoppers.

Chelsea have Petr Cech and Manchester City are successful with Joe Hart as their shot-stopper.

Arsenal have lacked this as they have failed to replace David Seaman and Jens Lehmann after their glory days ended.

If a player gets through the defence their should always be the thought of having the task of beating the keeper which all top clubs have in their lockers unlike Arsenal. 

Three possible candidates Arsenal could go for are unsettled Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas, QPR shot stopper Julio Cesar and Stoke star Asmir Begovic. These three keepers have proved over their careers that they too have the ability of not being beaten easily.

All successful clubs have a leader at centre-back. For example, Vincent Kompany, Nemanja Vidić, John Terry and Sergio Ramos.

Arsenal previously had Kolo Touré, Sol Campbell and Tony Adams who all controlled the back four resulting in a solid team overall.

Currently Arsenal are missing this captain figure. Three sensible and realistic players could be Swansea's Ashley Williams, Adil Rami from La Liga side Valencia and Champions League runners up Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels. All three of these players have a controlled way of playing and could easily improve the current Arsenal squad.

Finally, all big clubs have an outright top class striker in which Arsenal had Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and golden boot winner Robin van Persie.

However, a striker needs a hole team behind him; he cant do it all himself which was Arsenal's problem when they had Van Persie. The big name was there but the rest of the team like the captain role centre back and a world class keeper wasn't.

Before Van Persie. Manchester United had Wayne Rooney as their big named player. Chelsea had Drogba and are too looking for another top class striker now he has moved.

Manchester City have invested in two new big named strikers in Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetić and already owned the famous Sergio Aguero which made them a successful club.

Arsenal's potential big named striker could be French International Karim Benzema, goal scorer Robert Lewandowski or wantaway Luis Suarez in which Arsenal already had a bid rejected by Liverpool.

Like I said before, a successful club needs a class player in every position. Arsenal's midfield is sorted for the present and the future with a list to choose from including the likes of Jack Wilshere, in form Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla.

The club needs an experienced keeper, a world class centre back to fill the captain role, and a world renowned striker known for his prolific goal scoring record.

There are four trophies on offer for Arsenal to clinch this season. With players filling these positions, Arsenal will have a strong chance of winning the Premier League, the Champions League, the FA Cup and the League Cup.

If all backfires for all the other clubs with their new managers, Arsenal could easily silence the mouths of millions and take away this label of being trophy-less.
