Paul Scholes believes Arsenal will be in a superb position to win the Premier League if they secure ‘two or three more’ January additions following the arrival of Leandro Trossard.
Premier League leaders Arsenal made Belgium forward Trossard their first January signing, securing his services in a £27m deal from Brighton.
The Gunners then strengthened Mikel Arteta’s defensive options by signing Poland international Jakub Kiwior from Spezia.
Trossard made his Arsenal debut as a substitute in Sunday’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Manchester United, while Kiwior watched on from the stands.
Scholes believes Trossard will be a ‘great signing’ for Arsenal but says the north London club should be looking to get more business done before the January transfer window closes next week.
The victory over United – secured by Eddie Nketiah’s last-minute goal – took Arsenal five points clear of defending champions Manchester City with a game in hand.
‘When you are going for titles, you need strong squads, you need players who can come in and replace players,’ former Manchester United and England midfielder Scholes told Premier League Productions.
