Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has been advised by club legend Nigel Winterburn, to beef up his squad with a wide player, a central midfielder and a top-class defender this summer.
The Gunners failed to finish in the top four of the Premier League but can still qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League final against Chelsea on May 29.
Emery was desperate to sign a defender in January and Winterburn has now said that is one of the three areas the Spaniard must target ahead of the new season.
“I’d like to see a pacy attacking wide player come to the club, potentially another midfield player and there is a lot being said about the need to restrengthen in defence.
“But I think Unai Emery may be looking at the likes of Rob Holding, who had a fantastic six months and then picked up a serious knee injury.
“He was coming through and looking very, very consistent. It’s just a case of where Unai Emery feels he needs to strengthen.
“Everyone will say that defensively Arsenal haven’t been great again this season but it’s not just about the defence. It’s about when Arsenal do concede how quickly they get played through the lines.
“I’m quite excited about what’s going to happen to Arsenal next season and I’m very intrigued to see where Emery thinks Arsenal need strengthening.
“But my own thoughts are a wide player, another midfielder and potentially another centre-half.
“But I can’t see much more than that coming into the club because we’re hearing that Arsenal haven’t got a vast amount of money to spend,” Winterburn told Love Sport Radio.
