Arsenal and England legend names the signings Arsenal will make this summer

Arsenal former player and BT Sport pundit Alan Shearer believes that Arsenal need to make "five or six" quality signings in the summer if they're to challenge for the title next season.

The Gunners are likely to be linked with quality player in the coming weeks and months as the speculation on who is to replace Arsene Wenger continues. The Frenchman is stepping down as the Gunners boss at the end of the season after managing the club for 22 years.

The Gunners have struggled to maintain momentum in the Premier League in recent seasons and they have not lifted the top flight trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph back in the 2003-04 campaign.

And Alan Shearer believes that they are likely to break the bank this summer if they want to be able to mount a title challenge next season.

Speaking to BBC Sport, the England legend said:

The North London club have struggled to maintain Premier League title challenges in recent season

"It is a little worrying to read reports that the Gunners will have a transfer budget of only £50m this summer.

"I don’t know if that is true or not but, if those figures are accurate, it will not buy them an awful lot.

"If they want to start challenging for the title again they will need to sign five or six quality players and, individually and collectively, they will cost a heck of a lot more than that."

Having lose the semi-final to Atletico Madrid and chances on wining the trophy, the Gunners will be preparing for their home clash against Burnley on Sunday afternoon as they look try and finish as highly as possible in the table.

Arsenal are on course to miss out on a top finish this season for the second running, with with the Gunners currently in sixth place in the table.
