Arsenal legend Graham attacks Wenger: Transfer policy not up to standard

Arsenal legend George Graham has slaughtered Arsene Wenger after their FA Cup exit against Sunderland.

The Gunners legend piled into Wenger with a blistering assessment of the crisis gripping the Emirates.

He told The Sun: "Yes, Arsenal are in crisis. It has been slipping away for the last couple of years.

"They've not been replacing those players who left four or five years ago.

"They're lacking leaders and the quality of the players they're bringing in is just not up to the standard if you want to win the Premier League.

"Arsene's not won anything now for the last six years so there would be doubt in there. They've got money and I can't understand why Arsene has not gone out and bought some real quality players.

"But he has a fantastic reputation and I don't think the board will forget what he has done.

"I think he will still be there next season but he badly needs to refresh the playing side of the club. He needs to keep bringing youngsters through but he must buy quality, experienced players to win trophies."
