Robert Pires is convinced that Arsenal have the quality to win the Premier League title this season.
The north London side have not lifted the top-flight trophy since their famous unbeaten campaign in the 2003-04 season when Pires was still playing for the club.
The Gunners failed to challenge Leicester in the latter stages of last term as they ended up second in the table and 10 points behind the surprise champions.
Arsenal have been busy in the summer transfer window, bringing in five new players as Arsene Wenger looks to end the club’s long wait for the top-flight crown.
And former Arsenal midfielder Pires is convinced that the Gunners have what it takes to win the trophy this season.
Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Pires said: “He spent a lot of money. Not like Man United or Man City, but he chose good players with good quality.
“I think some players like Xhaka or Mustafi can help this team. Because actually the team is really good, the quality is unbelievable. Maybe they need more confidence, but I believe in Arsenal this season.
“I believe always in this team and this squad and of course in Arsene Wenger. I know a lot of fans are particular about Arsene.
“But I think the quality is there. This is my opinion, but when you see all the names at Arsenal, the quality is unbelievable. Believe me, because sometimes I’m training with the guys, and the team is very, very good.
“We need maybe a bit of luck for this season, and I hope less injuries.”
Arsenal return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
