Jack Wilshere is confident that with the addition of a couple more players Arsenal will be in a strong position to challenge for the Barclays Premier League title this season.

The 19-year-old midfielder has reiterated the importance of manager Arsene Wenger adding to the summer signings of Carl Jenkinson and Gervinho at the Emirates Stadium in order to keep pace with England's big spenders.

"We are not a spending club but we still managed to stay up there with the top teams," confirmed Wilshere. "And we have to win things this year.

"Maybe if we had a few more faces we could really push on. If we get a few more players we can really challenge for the title.

"Around March and April we have to stay really strong. We are confident we can be up and around it then so we have to remain strong at that crucial time."


One name that has been consistently linked with a move to north London, is highly rated Valencia starlet and Spanish Under-21 international Juan Mata - with reports over the weekend suggesting that Arsenal had in fact reached agreement with the La Liga outfit over a fee.

Mata gets the 'thumbs up' from Wilshere, who reserved special praise for the fellow midfielder, and said that the Gunners' style of play is something that would allow him to quickly settle in England.

"He is a top quality player," he continued. "We've seen that in the Under-21's and in the Spanish league last season. I think the way Arsenal play would suit his game."
