Gunners have been heavily linked with a number of big-name stars of late.
In-form Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny does not believe that the Premier League leaders must strengthen their squad when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year in order to maintain their brilliant start to the new season, according to reports in the Guardian.
The north London club have caused more than a few raised eyebrows with the way in which they have begun the new campaign, both at home and abroad.
The Gunners currently lead the Premier League by two points from second-placed Liverpool after the opening 11 matches of the season, while in the Uefa Champions League Arsenal are also well placed to progress from a tough-looking group with now just two fixtures left to play.
However, despite the club having recently been heavily linked with signing a number of big-name players at the turn of the year, including coveted Schalke o4 midfield player Julian Draxler, the Poland international, who himself has only just put pen to paper on a new contract in the capital, feels that Arsenal already have enough strength in depth to maintain their title challenge come the second half of this campaign.
“I wouldn’t say we have proved anyone wrong and passed all the tests, and I can’t say that until we get our hands on a trophy in May,” Szczesny said. “But what is important is what we believe in, and we believe that we are good enough with the players we have got and the work we are doing to win the Premier League.
“We have shown that to people over the last six months or so. We know that if we just carry on doing the same thing, we will show people that this team and these players are good enough to win a trophy without any extra additions or the extra work people are talking about. We certainly believe we can do it.
“It’s been almost 12 months really because it is not only this season we’ve been doing well. It was the last two or three months of last season, where we went unbeaten for a few games [they lost once in 16 league games].
“We are confident that we see the quality is there and we know that, when we play at our very best and do it consistently well, we can beat anyone, basically. A couple of years ago there was a case of not being consistent enough, individually or as a team, but now you can see that whoever comes into the team does a fantastic job. It seems to be bringing results. If we are at our best we will win a trophy.”
