Ljungberg: Arsenal can win title with Xhaka and Lucas Perez

Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg is convinced they can win the title this season.

The Swede is impressed by new signings Lucas Perez and Granit Xhaka.

He said: “Xhaka, I've seen him quite a lot and he's very good.

“He's a hard-working midfielder with a great left foot, like we had with (Emmanuel) Petit.

“I've heard on Lucas that he's impressed a lot of people on the training ground.

“I think some people wanted some signings in the summer but everyone knows English clubs have a lot of money at the moment and if you ask for a player they raise the prices.

“He managed to get the players in the end."

Ljungberg added: “They were second last year and this year hopefully we can win it."
