Ex Arsenal forward – Ian Wright believes Arsene Wenger should strike in the transfer market while momentum is with the Arsenal manager following Saturday’s FA Cup victory.
Writing in his column for The Sun, the former Gunners striker says the north Londoners cannot allow the opportunity to build on a trophy winning season to slip.
The 3-2 extra time win over Hull City at Wembley resulted in Wenger’s side picking up their first trophy for nine years.
And Wright believes this cannot be allowed to turn into a one
He wrote: “Now, of course, there can be no resting on laurels. No thinking that this victory is enough to satisfy the appetite.
“It has to have the opposite effect. It has to be a case of: ‘Now you know this feeling, it’s one to get used to every season’. “And I think everything is in place for that as well. We all know Arsene has to spend big this summer but I don’t think he needs the dramatic increase in numbers some would suggest.
“If Wenger can bring in three players of experience and ability, then I do not see any reason why they should not be right in the mix for all the big prizes.”
Wright continued: “Hopefully Arsene now realises what I and other ex-players have been saying for ages. That there is simply no substitute for a winners’ medal.
“One of the worst days of my career was watching Man United go up those steps to collect the FA Cup in 1990. One of the best was going up to do likewise three years later.
“Now the current players have tasted that, they will want more, and there is certainly no way anyone in that dressing room will think simply getting into the Champions League is a trophy-winning feeling.”
