Arsenal FC Summer Transfers: How Wenger Can Improve His Squad

Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have been struggling of late, and it's time for Arsene to accept his project isn't working and fix the problems he has created.

Arsenal's team isn't that far from being able to seriously challenge for Honours, but it isn't the first team that is the problem (for the most part, GK and CB standout as serious holes). It is the lack of quality depth that has plagued the club for the last few years.

When the best players are injured or suspended, those brought in to replace them have been sub-par, shots not taken, passes horribly missed and tackles poorly timed. Arsenal's bench would struggle not to be relegated.

But with a few tweaks here and there, getting rid of the dead wood, bringing in new talent and a new attitude—as well as holding onto the prized assets—and Arsenal could be challenging for Honours on numerous fronts next season.

I'm not advocating widespread change and a huge shift in personnel; mass changes like that would take a while to blend and gel into a working unit. What Arsenal need to do is to remove the five or six players who have reached their use-by date, and bring in a similar number to add to the depth of the squad.
