Wilshere: Arsenal need new faces to make title bid

Jack Wilshere limped out of the fridnly Emirates Cup against FC Big Apple yesterday and then claimed our squad is not atrong enough to win the Premier League title, says the Mail.

He was substituted with an ankle injury after just seven minutes of  the 1-1 draw and then said: “We are not a spending club but we still managed to stay up there with the top teams. And we have to win things this year.

“Maybe if we had a few more faces we could really push on. If we get a few more players we can really challenge for the title. Around March and April we have to stay really strong. We are confident we can be up and around it then so we have to remain strong at that crucial time.”

The same paper also claims AW is considering a late swoop for Wolves winger Matt Jarvis.
Meanwhile, former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson has warned Gunners fans that the potential capture of winger Juan Mata from Valencia could spell the end of midfielder Samir Nasri’s time at the club.
