Arsenal fans are still celebrating the club's first silverware since 2005 after coming from 2-0 down to defeat Hull City 3-2 in the FA Cup final on Saturday. There is now renewed optimism surrounding the club, and former Gunners striker Ian Wright has encouraged the club to kick on from here rather than feel like all their problems have evaporated.

"Now, of course, there can be no resting on laurels," said Wright. "No thinking that this victory is enough to satisfy the appetite. It has to have the opposite effect. It has to be a case of: Now you know this feeling, it's one to get used to every season."

"And I think everything is in place for that as well. We all know Arsene has to spend big this summer but I don't think he needs the dramatic increase in numbers some would suggest. If Wenger can bring in three players of experience and ability, then I do not see any reason why they should not be right in the mix for all the big prizes," the former striker added.

Wenger has been linked with a number of new faces already, but the strongest link so far has been to bring forward Carlos Vela back to the club. The Mexican striker, 25, first arrived in North London back in 2005, but failed to make an impact at the club before eventually being sold to Real Sociedad in 2012 after a loan spell with the La Liga side.

Having hit 48 goals in three seasons in San Sebastian, Vela has now been linked with a return to Arsenal - and he says things would be different if he did come back.

"We will try and reach an agreement in which we all win, la Real, Arsenal and me," Vela said. "We must see what can be done. We will decide what will be my future, it is all about finding the best way to be happy."

"I did not have as many chances as I wanted and I had to try something new," he said. "If I have to return to London I will do things in a different way. What happened in the past will not be repeated."

Another new name linked with a switch to the club this summer is Valencia defender Adil Rami. The French international, 28, has spent half of the season on loan at AC Milan, but the Serie A side are reportedly unwilling to pay the £5.5m fee to sign him permanently. With Thomas Vermaelen possibly leaving the club, Rami could be seen as ideal cover for Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.
