Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp believes Arsenal are two or three signings away from winning the league title next season.
The Gunners have put behind their poor form at the start of the season and enjoyed a brilliant run during this calendar year. They settled for a goalless draw during the league clash against Chelsea at the Emirates.
Jose Mourinho's side are only one win away from winning the Premier League title this season as they lead the table with 80 points from 34 matches, trailing second place Manchester City by 13 points.
Arsenal are third in the table, sharing same points with City. However, the north London club have a game in hand and a close to impossible task of winning the league title this season. Redknapp claims the Gunners are not too far away from Chelsea and has urged Arsene Wenger to make three quality signings in the summer.
"Arsenal are not far short. I'm sure Arsene knows, but I think they need two or three players next year if they are really going to look to win the league," Redknapp told talkSPORT.
"They need a bit of strengthening down the spine of the team. I think they need another central defender, a midfield player and a striker."
"They are not easy to find, but if they can go and out and bring a bit more strength to the team [they can challenge for the title]. They have certainly got lots of fantastic talented players there already," the former QPR manager said.
Earlier, Arsenal legend Thierry Henry had also suggested his former club need quality additions and a consistent performance from the existing star players at the Emirates in order to help the Gunners win the league.
Meanwhile, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is confident that his side can challenge Chelsea for the title next season if Wenger makes quality additions and keeps the current crop of players at the Emirates.
