Judging by Arsenal’s celebrations having claimed Champions League qualification on the Premier League’s final day by the slenderest of margins, many would assume they had ended their silverware drought.
Arsenal fans would be wise to enjoy the celebrations whilst they can, because next season is already looking set to be make or break for Arsene Wenger and his team.
Whilst the Gunners produced some excellent form during the final 10 games of the season, and deserve tremendous credit for the way in which they overtook arch-rivals Tottenham to claim Champions League football, next season must see them push on if they are to have any realistic ambitions of getting back to where they once were as one of the most feared teams in English football.
Arsene Wenger is finally being allowed to splash some cash, and you could argue a transfer window has never been more crucial for the Gunners. With solid foundations in place, and with the right signings, there should be no reason why Arsenal should not be title challengers next season.
Here we have compiled a list of five reasons you could potentially back the Gunners for an onslaught on the Premier League title next season.
