Arsenal to Sign New Players

Petit believes Arsenal can lift title if quality additions are added in winter.

Arsenal legend and former midfielder, Emmanuel Petit has thrown his weight behind the Gunners’ title chances with him believing the North London team can win the League if they buy new central back, and that the 5 – 1 thrashing during the 2nd leg encounter of the Champions League group match at Germany can be quickly forgotten. Although tagging the heavy mauling a “slap in the face”, the ex France international believes Arsenal can bounce back citing the team’s comebacks after suffering defeats in the hands of West Ham and Chelsea earlier on in the season. Petit also wants his former boss, who hardly spends during the winter, to acquire another central back after Gabriel Paulista’s inexperience was exposed by the German champions.
