Aaron Ramsey claims Arsenal don't need signings

Published 9 Comments

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has insisted that the club don't need new players to challenge for the Premier League title. 

As reported by the Daily Mail, the Welsh international, who played a leading role for the club as they secured FA Cup silverware last term, has insisted that the Gunners have improved over the last few years, and believes they have a great chance of overhauling Chelsea as Premier League champions in 2015/16.

He's admitted, though, that every club makes changes throughout the course of the summer, but it appears that he would be happy if nothing changed at the club over the coming months.

“Every club brings in a new faces and a few will leave. But even with this group of players now I believe if everyone was fit in the season we would have a great opportunity of competing for the Premier League,” he told the Daily Mail.

“This team has come on a lot over the last few years and if we can get off to a good start next season we will challenge.

“The club is in a good place. They don't have to let players go and we're building this team rather than players leaving and you have to rebuild around those left. It is a nice feeling and means that the group can stick together. The understanding is there already so it can only get stronger.”

Arsenal, of course, ended in third place last term, but still found themselves as many as 12 points behind Jose Mourinho and Co. in west London. 

Ramsey is wrong

And, despite Ramsey's comments, the majority of Arsenal fans will be hoping for at least a couple of signings sooner rather than later. At the end of the day, Chelsea were a level above Arsenal last term, and the Gunners certainly have room for improvement. 

A world-class out-and-out striker would be ideal, while another top name in the middle of the park to compete with the likes of Francis Coquelin would only benefit them as they go about maintaining a title challenge. 

One thing's for sure, Wenger doesn't need to change much this summer, but he certainly can't afford to stand still if the club are serious about getting back to the summit of England's elite division.
