Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes that the north London club have the squad to claim the title but need some impetus in the holding midfield region to help them cross the line. Injuries to Francis Coquelin, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla mean that they are currently understocked in that region and an injury to Mathieu Flamini will have Wenger scurrying for cover.

The Gunners went top of the league table for a day when they beat Aston Villa with consummate ease last weekend but are back in the second spot after Leicester City's win over Chelsea. Arsenal play Manchester City in a crucial six pointer for the title next Monday (21 December) where a win for either will give them a massive boost in the title race.

Henry, who has won two league titles with the Gunners, knows what it takes to go all the way and believes a backup for Flamini is the need of the hour. The Gunners are reportedly keen on giving Calum Chambers a chance to prove his worth in midfield and are holding back on any purchase in order to give the former Southampton man a chance to prove himself in that position.

"It's a hard one, because for me right now I think Arsenal's squad is good enough to win the league," Henry told Sky Sports, as quoted by Goal, when asked what the Gunners need in the upcoming transfer window to win the title. "What we need is some backup to make sure we have a guy that can hold the fort if Flamini gets injured.

"The position would be holding midfielder for me, and with Arsenal they are at the top and the amount of injuries they've had is not normal.

"When those guys come back they can be your new signings. But we keep saying that! I will have answered that [question of who they should sign] properly if the whole team was there, but the boss never has everyone available."
