Mourinho: I would sign every Arsenal player

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed Arsenal’s squad should be champions and insisted he would sign every player in Arsene Wenger’s squad.

Mourinho has developed a frosty relationship with Wenger over the years and he has now put the spotlight on the Frenchman’s record, suggesting that Arsenal have the squad to be champions every season.

“I like every player from Arsenal,” Mourinho told reporters.

“I tell you, if one of their players is a free agent and they don’t want him there, I get every one. I like all of their players.”

“I think Arsenal have the squad to be champions. And every season I feel that.”

Wenger’s men have not won the Premier League title since 2003-04, yet Mourinho believes they have what it takes to go all the way this campaign.

Arsenal currently sit fifth in the Premier League table with 10 points from six games, trailing leaders Manchester City by five points.

They were beaten 2-0 by Mourinho’s Chelsea at the weekend, yet still hold a three-point advantage over the reigning champions.
