Arsenal told Oleksandr Zinchenko won’t be enough to compete with Tottenham

Gabriel Agbonlahor has warned Arsenal that just signing Oleksandr Zinchenko may not be enough to catch up with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners have been active this summer, signing players such as Marquinhos, Gabriel Jesus, Matt Turner, and Fabio Vieira. They are now close to signing another Manchester City star in Zinchenko, with a £30m fee in place for the Ukrainian.

But even if that signing is completed, the Gunners would need to do more in order to compete with Spurs. That is the viewpoint of former Aston Villa star Gabby Agbonlahor, who said to TalkSPORT (h/t Football.London):

“There’s talk of Zinchenko, who I think will be a great signing, a great addition. He’s versatile, but maybe they need another right-sided winger as backup to Bukayo Saka because Nicolas Pepe has not done it.

“These teams know that they need to keep improving their squad because it’s going to get harder and harder to challenge for the top four. Arsenal don’t want to be cut adrift.”

He then went on to praise the business done this summer by Spurs. The Lilywhites have already signed Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, Clement Lenglet, Fraser Forster, and Richarlison.

Antonio Conte isn’t quite finished in the window just yet. The Lilywhites are close to agreeing on a transfer for Djed Spence – the right-back who impressed last season on loan at Nottingham Forest.

“They want to bring in top, top players because Spurs are doing the same. Spurs have had a great window so it’s going to be even harder this season to get that top four and Man United fans, once again, will say that I don’t think they’ve got much chance to get top four again this season.”

Finishing in the top four is no easy task. Just ask Arsenal and Manchester United- who had decent spells throughout the course of last season but could manage to finish above Spurs in fourth.

In that regard, Conte has done a brilliant job. It was always unrealistic for the former Inter Milan manager to compete for the biggest titles after being brought in mid-season, but we can expect our team to fight for silverware now.
