Unai Emery Needs To Improve Arsenal Squad – Dixon
Lee Dixon has urged Arsenal manager Unai Emery and the board to improve the squad in all departments after failing to qualify for the Champions League.
Dixon, who played for Arsenal between 1988 and 2002, has urged the club to strengthen in the current window to avoid another year playing catch in the Premier League.
“It’s a huge summer for Arsenal,” Dixon told TalkSport.
“It was always going to be a big summer regardless of where they finished and whether they got to the Europa League or not.
“I think Emery knew this season was going to end like this, to a point where we either got into the top four and got Champions League football or we didn’t quite. We failed on that front.
“So he’s got to look accordingly and try to convince the board and powers that be to give him enough money to improve the squad.
“It does need improving in all departments, and let’s hope we can keep hold of our best players in order to do that.”
