Laurent Koscielny believes Arsenal need as many as four new faces this summer if they are to compete for the Premier League title next season, ESPN has reported.

Koscielny went so far as to pinpoint the positions in which he hopes Arsene Wenger strengths the squad before the new campaign gets underway in August. “We'll need a goalkeeper, a right-back, a midfielder and a striker,” Koscielny said.

“It's important to have a minimum of these four players so that we'll be better able to challenge over the course of a whole season against teams like Manchester City, Chelsea or [Manchester] United,” he added. “Winning the FA Cup can change things and lead to other players coming.

“We need to recruit a very, very good striker, because it's important for us, for competition for places, because Olivier needs that to become even better,” Koscielny continued. “Having a striker who scores more than 30 goals a season can help us win the Premier League. Compared to the squads like Manchester City, even United, Chelsea. ...You can see there's a certain difference.”

Koscielny has been with the Gunners since a 2010 move from French side Lorient. The 28-year-old has gone on to play more than 150 times for the London club, scoring 13 goals, and helped Arsenal to victory in the FA Cup this season, scoring in the final against Hull City, to land the club’s first trophy since 2005.
