Arsenal should spend big money on three star players this summer, according to Piers Morgan, if they want to compete for the Premier League championship this season.

Arsenal’s last league triumph came in 2004, and since then, teams such as Manchester City and Liverpool have dominated the Premier League in recent years.

After finishing in the top four of the Premier League and qualifying for the Champions League this season, Arsenal will have the financial wherewithal to sign some top-tier players in the summer transfer market.

Morgan, a TV personality who is also an Arsenal supporter, has high expectations for the team.

‘Arsenal should sign @Cristiano, @gabrieljesus9 and @_DeclanRice. Then we can compete for the league again,’ he tweeted on Tuesday.

The Gunners have been linked with a bid for Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, with Pep Guardiola expecting to recruit a new striker in the summer transfer window, among the three.

Declan Rice of West Ham will not be short of attention from prospective suitors, but at the moment, Manchester United and Chelsea are thought to be at the front of the line for his services.

As for Cristiano Ronaldo, his future at Old Trafford is in doubt, with Erik ten Hag set to take over as manager at the conclusion of the current season.

Morgan, who has already interviewed the Portuguese great, wants the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to join Arsenal, despite the fact that he is 37 years old.

‘When it comes down to money and owners and riches and banking, we’ve got the richest of all of them,’ Morgan told talkSPORT.

‘Stan Kroenke has got £10billion, he’s married to a woman who has got even more in the Walmart heiress who has £15billion. He’s just bought a ranch for £750million, he can afford to buy a couple of strikers!

‘Do you know what I’d do if I was Arsenal manager? I’d go in, get Cristiano Ronaldo and put him up front.

‘I’ve had this conversation with him last week. I said, “Come to Arsenal”.

‘I’m not even joking. I’d love to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Arsenal. If he’s not going to stay at United, I’d take him in a heartbeat.’
