Arsenal will be in the market for big-name signings like Juventus star Paul Pogba this summer, according to the view of former Sky Sports pundit Andy Gray.
The Gunners have managed to up their spending in recent times, with Alexis Sanchez joining from Barcelona last summer and Mesut Ozil in a club-record move from Real Madrid the year before.
Although Arsenal are not believed to be among the main frontrunners to sign Pogba, the French international is the kind of player Arsene Wenger’s side could arguably do with in the middle of the park, and Gray feels it is quality, rather than numbers, that the club needs in this summer’s transfer market.
Arsenal have enjoyed a strong run of form towards the end of this season after getting big players back from injury, and Gray has told talkSPORT that the north London giants do not really need to address squad depth this summer, so can move for bigger players.
“When I look at the Arsenal squad, what Arsene Wenger doesn’t need is numbers,” the Scot said.
“He has a fantastically deep squad with a lot of good players. What he needs is quality, and I think he has said that himself.
“He is only going to be interested now in buying a player that makes his team, not his squad, better. Paul Pogba fits into that bracket. He would definitely make Arsenal a better team.
“I think Arsenal will only go into the market this summer if they can get two big ones and, if they can, they will pay what they need to.”
