Andrey Arshavin believes Arsenal can turn around their flagging fortunes next season - by buying more players like him.

With a fourth successive trophyless season coming to an end, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has come under criticism for his policy of buying and developing young talent rather than established stars.

Russia forward Arshavin, 27, bucked that trend somewhat when he arrived for around £15million in January, and told the Daily Mail: "We must buy in the summer. Not more potential, but players who are ready to do it now, players like me."

He added: "We need two or three. If Arsenal want to win they have to do it - we are tired of waiting.

"At the moment young players come to Arsenal because they see it as a very big team, but if we carry on like this without winning trophies, young players will not want to come."
