Arsenal Midfielder Aaron Ramsey Calls For Greater Squad Depth

Young ace hopes to see new additions.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsay has said that he is looking forward to seeing some new faces arrive to improve a ‘quality’ squad that are a little light on numbers, Sky Sports reports.

The Welsh international helped the side through to the group stages of the Champions League earlier this week with a brace that saw the Gunners overcome Fenerbahce 5-0 on aggregate.

And with a place in the tournament proper guaranteed Ramsay expects manager Arsene Wenger to step up his efforts at bringing in fresh faces with just under a week of the transfer window remaining. And he has spelled out his desire to see more competition for places, believing that it will make the squad stronger all around.

“We have a lot of quality in the team, even if we are short of numbers,” he said.

“Maybe that’s what teams like Manchester City and Man United have done over the last few years as they can rotate. Maybe we are a bit short on that.

“But we have a lot of quality and hopefully one or two additions will strengthen us and mean that we are able to rotate.”

After an opening day defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League, Arsenal have moved quickly found their form and Ramsey feels a return to their best as a collective has helped him to raise his own standards – with the Welshman back to the levels he was showing before suffering a badly broken leg in 2010.

He added: “I am enjoying myself out there and confident at the moment. After the injury I had, it takes a bit of time to get over it mentally.

“That’s behind me now and I think I am showing people what I can do.”
