Arsenal set for title challenge after busy summer

Arsenal have been making moves earlier in the transfer window as oppose to other years gone by when the Gunners have let key signings get away - most recently the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez.

This year, however, the Gunners have already added Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy to the squad and with reports suggesting that Wenger is ready to further strengthening his squad with the likes of Sami Khedira.

The right signings?

Fans may be pleased to see the likes of Sanchez joining the Gunners, who had a terrific World Cup, but is he really what Arsenal need? Last season The Gunners relied heavily on Olivier Giroud to spearhead the attack with only Yaya Sanogo and Nicholas Bendtner being the only notable strikers on the bench, and both failed to impress although Sanogo is still a raw figure who needs molding.  

Sanchez adds a different dynamic to the Arsenal attack with his pace and trickery being a difference to Giroud's strength and hold up play, and the return of Theo Walcott will add even more pace to an already blistering attack.

With the likes of Cazorla, Podolski and Oxlade Chamberlain, who can all play on the wings, The Gunners' attack does look like it has more options than it did in 2013/14. Wenger's side also have future star Joel Campbell and the class off attacking midfielders Ozil, Wilshere and Ramsey.

Debuchy is a no-brainer for the Gunners after losing Bacary Sagna to Manchester City. The squad was lacking a recognised right back apart from rookie Carl Jenkinson and Debuchy won one over Sagna at the World Cup starting four of the five French games.

Can Arsenal push for a title challenge?

Every year Arsenal fans question whether the squad can push for the Premier League title, some years the team starts slow and others they fade out towards the end and it does leave the fans with a bitter feeling of what could had been.

This season, if Wenger keeps adding to his squad and sticking with his philosophy of fast attacking football, then the Gunners could find themselves back at the summit of the Premier League table - only time will tell.
