Harry Redknapp has admitted he was impressed with Arsenal at the end of last season and believes if the club can add new faces they will his choice to run the Premier League title-race close.
The former Tottenham manager was full of praise for Arsene Wenger’s side and stated the strength in depth of the Gunners midfield is one of their strongest assets.
Redknapp also added that unless there was a major slip up, he saw nothing but an Arsenal victory in the FA Cup final against Aston Villa due to the gulf in class between the two sides.
Speaking to KICCA, the 68-year-old said:
“You look at their midfield there’s so much ability there and then you’ve still got players like Jack Wilshere not in the team and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain still to come in as well as (Mikel) Arteta.
“They’re full of quality and if Wenger makes two or three good signings in the summer they’ll be my team next year to go close.
“Next year may be their year, I think they will go close.”
