Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal are ‘moving in the right direction’ and says Mikel Arteta’s team could mount a challenge for the Premier League title.
Arsenal are top of the Premeir League after winning five of their opening six league fixtures, with optimism high that the Gunners can end their exile from the Champions League.
The north Londoners have not finished inside the Premier League’s top four since 2015/16, but have shown signs of progress following a summer recruitment drive that brought in Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City.
Former Arsenal boss Wenger has been impressed with the progress of the side and refused to rule out a title challenge for the Gunners, should the club maintain their momentum.
“I would say they are moving in the right direction. I honestly think there is no weak position in the team… they are young, promising players and they have bought well this year,” Wenger said, as per Sky Sports.
“There is no completely dominating team this season and Arsenal has a chance with the potential that is there.
“We used to be in the top four and why not again? You cannot even rule out the fact that they can fight for the title and hopefully they can do it.”
