Arsene Wenger suggests how many signings Arsenal will look to make this summer

Emirates Inside

The Gunners came up short once again in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger has suggested that Arsenal will look to make three signings during the summer transfer window as their wait for the Premier League title continues, the London Evening Standard reports.

With the top flight as open as it ever has been in recent years, there will surely be calls for the Gunners to use the chequebook extensively in the coming months to ensure that they can take advantage of the openness by being the ones that seize the initiative.

And Wenger has suggested how many new additions he believes will help them do just that. 

"I must say, we want to combine technical stability with players that we know want to play and know our game. Maybe bring in three players for example. That's the right level for me," he told the London Evening Standard.

With the two Manchester clubs as well as Chelsea failing to make a major impression in the title race, the frustration over Arsenal's lack of business last summer seemed to reach another level amongst the fans.

Petr Cech was the only addition that bolstered the first-team options, and that decision not to add any depth in the outfield positions was perhaps one of the key reasons why Leicester and Tottenham were the last two teams standing in the title race despite Arsenal's squad arguably boasting more world-class players. 

And Gunners supporters will be desperate for Wenger to make sure that the club are busy in the market to ensure that it is not the same story this time next season.
