Arsenal and Tottenham look to be the clubs that will push Chelsea the closest for the Premier League title, but both North London giants could certainly do with some additional reinforcements.
Enjoying excellent seasons, although both sides will have their complaints, Arsenal and Spurs both fell short last term but seem to have made progress.
That said, it seems they’ll have to make more if they’re to launch a successful bid for the title.
All is not over this season though and our landlord believes that a signing or two before next Wednesday’s deadline can provide a huge lift to the squad, potentially providing the stepping stone to go on and leap-frog Chelsea later in the year.
The sides will also of course be battling amongst themselves in the second-half of the season, with Arsenal looking to maintain their perfect-record under Arsene Wenger of always finishing above the Lilywhites, whilst Spurs are desperate to close the gap.
