Arsene Wenger builds his teams based on youth prospects for the future and the desire to secure Arsenal's future, but it can be argued that a lack of experience in his sides is one of the biggest contributing factors to Arsenal's dismal run of eight seasons without a trophy.
Wenger's record is undisputed: he has found gems in Europe, and nurtured their talent until they can be considered some of the best players in the world.
However, on the competition front, even the most die-hard Wenger fans are starting to admit he needs to adjust his transfer policy.
This is a list of some of the players that could help Arsenal to a first trophy in eight years.
Julio Cesar | Queens Park Rangers
After QPR's disastrous season, they have been left with a bloated wage outlet and some truly quality players that are above Championship level. Julio Cesar is one of those, meaning he will be available low-cost.
Considered one of the best keepers in Europe, he shocked the world when signing for QPR. However, Arsenal is a more appropriate destination for him and they are undoubtedly in need of an experienced goalkeeper.
Wojciech Szczęsny is undoubtedly talented and another example of Wenger's quality youth policy, but he has been known to make mistakes and until he's truly ready for regular first-team football at the highest level, he will need a truly classy keeper to learn from.
Cesar, with his vast experience, can be this keeper.
Phil Jagielka | Everton
Arsenal's defence this season can be described, at best, as inconsistent. High profile defensive errors have led to them losing points that they could so easily have avoided losing are perhaps the main reasons Arsenal do not win trophies anymore.
Undoubtedly they need to shore things up and Phil Jagielka can be just the man to do that.
Jagielka played an integral part in Everton's defence last season, in their impressive tally of 11 clean sheets, he participated in ten. Always putting his body on the line, Jagielka is a player that you can count on to make block after block in any match.
An ever-present for Everton, and Sheffield United before, in the Premier League for seven straight seasons, he is clearly an experienced defender. On top of that, he also has international experience with England.
Luka Modric | Real Madrid
Much has been said about Arsenal's need for a tough, battling midfielder, but Wenger has utilised Mikel Arteta to perform in that position rather well.
In fact Arsenal are in need of some creative influence in midfield. Only Santi Cazorla has performed this role sufficiently for Arsenal this season and Luka Modric is exactly the kind of creative midfielder that provides the goals that win trophies.
Modric moved to Real Madrid in the summer but has been relatively marginalised this season to limited opportunities in the first-team squad. He has become disillusioned with his life at Real and could be looking for a summer move.
Arsenal would be a perfect fit for him. He would have the first-team opportunities and creative freedom he desires, and Arsenal would have the all important midfielder they have been missing. And as a bonus, it would be unspeakably frustrating for all Tottenham fans.
Notable mentions: Shay Given, Ashley Williams.
