Former Premier League striker Nigel Jemson insists that Arsenal need to keep spending if they are to climb out of the hole they find themselves in.
The Gunners beat Norwich City at the weekend, although that was only their first victory of the season.
Arsenal are currently 16th in the table, having lost all of their first three games, to Brentford, Chelsea, and Manchester City.
They did not score a goal in the first three fixtures, shipping nine goals, and they have only scored once, in the 1-0 win over the Canaries.
Mikel Arteta’s side enjoyed an aggressive summer of recruitment, bringing in a number of new signings for immense fees under the watch of technical director Edu.
The Gunners have, per Transfermarkt, spent £149m, bringing in Ben White, Martin Odegaard, Aaron Ramsdale, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares.
But Jemson feels that the club need to double that investment to £298m if they are to take the next step and start to climb the table.
He said: “It takes time for signings to work. I still think they need to spend double that again to try and get more players in.”
