Laurent Koscielny believes some new additions to Arsenal’s squad will result in a stronger challenge for the title next season.
The Gunners, who last lifted the Premier League trophy back in 2004, were once again in the hunt this term but tailed off and ended up finishing second.
Ten points was the gap to surprise champions Leicester City and another league failure left question marks over the future of manager Arsene Wenger.
The board have backed the Frenchman to deliver the goods in the next campaign but a huge emphasis has been put on spending in the transfer market, having already secured Granit Xhaka for around Â£30-35million.
Leicester forward Jamie Vardy is also mulling over a Â£20million move to the Emirates while Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko could be snapped up on the cheap after the Magpies were relegated.
Koscielny, who is one of the more experienced players for Arsenal, is happy to hear of potential new arrivals and thinks they will provide the extra boost needed.
He told Omnisport: “We have to keep the positive from this season to learn from it, and start a nice season next year, with probably some new players that will allow us to reach another level and have more consistent results.”
