Arsenal transfer news: Laurent Koscielny claims the Gunners need FOUR new signings

The France international says new players are needed at the Emirates

Laurent Koscielny has said that Arsenal need four top new signings to improve on their FA Cup winning season of last term, including a goalkeeper, a replacement for Bacary Sagna at right-back, and a striker.

The France defender, who is away on international duty preparing for the World Cup, has stated who he thinks manager Arsene Wenger should buy this summer.

"We’ll need a goalkeeper, a right-back, a midfielder and a striker," the 28-year-old said.

"It’s important to have a minimum of these four players so that we’ll be better able to challenge over the course of a whole season

"Having a striker who scores more than 30 goals a season can help us win the Premier League."


Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has revealed that the club are “deep in conversations” to bring in new players this summer, and some could still arrive before the World Cup begins next Thursday.
