Quoted by the London Evening Standard, Arsenal defender Laurent says they need signings that will take them to another level.

Arsenal are expected to be busy in this summer transfer window after what many has perceived as a disappointing season last year.

The Gunners finished second in the table, their highest finish in some time, but the wide held belief is that they should have been challenging for the title as their rivals struggled.

It is believed that something of an overhaul of the squad will be needed this summer, with fans urging Arsene Wenger to spend the cash this summer.

And Koscielny says that they need players that can take them to the next level.

“It’s a disappointment, we finished second, but if you look at the whole season, we can have regrets,” the London Evening Standard reports him saying.

“It was tough but we have to take the positives from this season and learn from it, make a good start next season, probably with some new players that will allow us to reach another level.”

It will certainly be interesting to see what signings that Arsenal make this summer after last season.

They have already signed Granit Xhaka for big money, while the £20million pound bid for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy hints they are willing to loosen the purse strings.

Whether or not they are the type of signings that could taken the club to the next level though, remains to seen.
