Whether or not Arsenal finish this season in the top four, there is plenty of work to be done.
Arsenal's team is not currently strong enough to challenge for the Premier League title. However, they have the resources available to change that. Their most recent financial results noted cash reserves of more than £123 million.
Arsenal do not need a change of ownership. They do not even need a change of manager. What they need is a change of policy.
Arsene Wenger and the board need to loosen the purse-strings and bring in the quality players that Arsenal need.
Verdict: If Arsenal can add a top goalkeeper, centre-half and striker, they could be transformed into title-winners.
The major threat to Arsenal's attempt to topple Manchester United and mount a title challenge will come from Chelsea and Manchester City, although both clubs have uncertainties surrounding the managerial position.
Arsene Wenger is now the Premier League's longest-serving manager by more than a decade. He has the experience, the conviction and the support required to win a league title.
Now he just needs the players.
What do you think? Are Arsenal in a position to take control of the Premier League?
