Warnock suggests what Arsenal don't need in next transfer window

Former Premier League manager Neil Warnock has suggested Arsenal don't need to sign another young player.

Former top flight boss Neil Warnock told talkSPORT that he doesn’t think Arsenal need more younger players in their first team.

He’s also explained that he was surprised that Arsenal didn’t compete to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, before the Frenchman took a move to play for Manchester United.

Arsenal signed only one high profile player during the transfer window with the arrival of Petr Cech, with Arsene Wenger choosing not to bring in an outfield player, showing confidence in the squad he already has.

“I just don’t think Arsenal need a young player – I thought so as well (Schneiderlin ideal), I’m a bit surprised they didn’t pursue him,” he told talkSPORT.

The two things Arsenal need

Arsenal have a talented squad but the two things they really need are an experienced and aggressive holding midfield man and a world class centre forward.

They have good options in those positions with Francis Coquelin and Olivier Giroud, but whether they are players who are going to win the club the Premier League is doubtful.

Wenger is now under massive pressure for his side to progress and be successful over the course of the next season.

If the Gunners come up short and have a year without any silverware then every single fan will point their finger at the manager and ask the same question; why didn’t you buy anyone when you had the cash?
