Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere admits that it is a big season for the club and backs his side to challenge for the Premier League title.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted that the coming season is very important for the club.

The Gunners have not won a trophy for eight years and Wilshere knows that the fans are unhappy.

"It's a big season ahead for us," Wilshere told Sports Illustrated. "A few of the other big teams have changed managers this season and we've got a manager who has been there a long time.

"We haven't won a trophy in seven or eight years. The fans are starting to realise that and we're feeling the pressure, and we have to step up.

"I think we [are ready to challenge for the title]. We could maybe add a few more players that when we're getting tired we can change things up. That's a big thing in England, you have to have a big squad."

Arsenal are currently on their pre-season tour of the Far East.
