Arsenal's second highest shareholder Alisher Usmanov believes they're building a squad capable of winning silverware. Usmanov believes the North London club are "well placed" to enjoy a trophy-laden future.

"The club is very well placed to succeed," he told the Daily Telegraph. "I think we begin a new era for Arsenal where we win trophies.

"That is most important for football. In my opinion, in line with the existing rules, the club has the correct decision-making process in place, including their selection policy, especially now, when they have the means to buy the best players."
