For the past eight years, Arsenal have been unable to win a trophy and this has caused increased pressure on the side, asking the question: is it time for Arsene Wenger to go?
Some fans think it’s time for Wenger to leave as he has not been able to deliver the fans a trophy for such a long time. Wenger’s philosophy has always been to build the team by introducing players from the academy rather than spending huge amounts of money on players, like their rivals Chelsea and Manchester City.
However, in order to challenge for trophies I think Arsenal must spend some money on players otherwise they will not be able to challenge for silverware.
They are currently interested in a few top quality players at the moment which has given fans hope for the new season. However, none of these transfers have materialised so I think Arsenal need to make sure they buy a top striker like Gonzalo Higuain to make a statement and to show that they mean business.
Currently Arsenal's record transfer fee stands at £16m which they spent on Santi Cazorla. So, if they want Higuain they will need to spend at least £25m which will smash their transfer record.
At the moment Arsenal do have a good team, with the likes of Jack Wilshere, who if they can keep fit throughout the season could be a key player.
Then there’s Cazorla, who is a very exciting player to watch, plays some beautiful football at times and scores some vital goals.
They just need to add two or three top players to their side and they will have a lot of potential to do well next season, but if they don’t manage to make any major signings then it could be another tough season with another year without a single trophy.
At the end of the day it is up to Wenger to invest in the key players and if he does not deliver next season his job could be on the line.
