Gunners boss outlines transfer plans

05 May 2015, 16:21

Cape Town - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he will be looking to bring in "top, world-class players" for next season.

Wenger's comments came shortly after his side's 3-1 win at Hull City.

The Gunners cruised to three points at the KC Stadium thanks to a brace from Alexis Sanchez either side of Aaron Ramsey's strike, while Stephen Quinn grabbed a consolation for the Tigers in the second half.

The result saw the Gunners go level on points with second-placed Manchester City, with the dethroned champions ahead on goal difference, although Arsenal still have a game in hand, against Sunderland, which will be played in the final week of the Premier League campaign.

And while second is the most they can hope for this season, with Chelsea having already wrapped up the title, Wenger feels with the right additions, the north London giants can challenge for league glory next term.

"We have a big squad - the basis is there. We do not need to buy a number of players," Wenger told Sky Sports.

"If we can get top, world-class players we will look at it, but we have a very strong squad already in number and we want to stay together and start well next season.

"I feel that we have made progress. Chelsea is a worthy winner this year because they have been the most consistent team of all.

"Let's finish well, then prepare well for next season and give them a good fight."
