Arsenal hero Winterburn: Arteta needs 5-6 more signings

Arsenal hero Nigel Winterburn wants the club to buy, buy, buy.

Winterburn wants the club to make another five signings along with Leeds winger Raphinha.

He told the Daily Express: "Number one has to be a centre-forward, potentially [another signing in the] wide areas.

“Raphinha's been mentioned but I'd want another central midfield player, the full-back position and potentially another centre-half. We don't know what's happening with [William] Saliba.

“He came with a huge reputation, young player, but we haven't seen him play, he's gone back out on loan. The rumours are he's coming back but it seems a very complicated situation and we need to know what's happening with him.

“If he's staying and wants to be here, fine, but if not we'll need another centre-half. So I'd want another centre-half, two full-backs, a central midfielder and a centre-forward.

“Do I think all those will come? No, because it will cost Arsenal too much money."
