According to the latest reports, former Arsenal superstar Nigel Winterburn has asked the club to strengthen three key areas this summer transfer window. The ex-Arsenal left-back revealed that he would like to see a wide player; a midfielder and a defender arrive at the Emirates Stadium to bolster Unai Emery’s squad this summer.

Ever since Unai Emery took charge of Arsenal football club back in the summer of 2018, he has done quite an impressive job by taking over the reins from his legendary predecessor Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman was at North London for 22 long years and won several major honors with Arsenal over the years including three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

However, during the final few years of Wenger’s managerial career with Arsenal, he was being outwitted by the newer generation of managers. The whole Arsenal fan base was getting toxic and it seemed like it was time for the 69-year-old to finally leave the club which he did last year.

Arsenal was in dire need for some new energy and life and Emery has provided that for the loyal Gunners after implementing his style of play into the club. Almost all of his summer signings hit the ground running but Arsenal finished fifth on the Premier League table and was unable to make it inside the top four. However, the North London club still has the chance to play Champions League football for next season if they beat Chelsea in the Europa League final on 30th May.

In Emery’s first season in England, the Spanish boss has learned quite a lot and ex-Arsenal star Nigel Winterburn has voiced his opinion on the areas that Arsenal need to strengthen. The 55-year-old former left-back spoke to L’Radio and said, “I would 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 strengthen in defense. 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.”

Winterburn went on to explain that he is quite excited for the future that is being built by Arsenal at the moment, “Everyone will say that defensively Arsenal have not been great again this season but it is not just about the defense. It is about when Arsenal do concede how quickly they get played through the lines. I am quite excited about what’s going to happen to Arsenal next season and I am very intrigued to see where Emery thinks Arsenal need strengthening. But my own thoughts are a wide player, another midfielder and potentially another center-half. But I can not see much more than that coming into the club because we are hearing that Arsenal has not got a vast amount of money to spend.”
