Ian Wright is trying to use Arsenal's summer transfer window as "armour" having grown jealous of Tottenham's playing squad which has been strengthened with notable arrivals.
Spurs, who beat the Gunners to Champions League qualification by securing a fourth place Premier League finish, have since welcomed Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison among others.
Those additions, coupled with the trophy-winning pedigree of Antonio Conte, have left Wright feeling rather anxious over the threat they will pose in 2022/23.

Wright said on the Wrighty's House podcast: "I feel Tottenham are going to cause problems. You can’t not be jealous of that summer, especially coming from the other side of North London.
"They are frightening, man. Everything we are doing at Arsenal, and I am putting on as my armour.

"But we have done this. We have (Fabio) Vieira. We have two No10s now. And we are still trying for [Youri] Tielemans. And we have Gabriel Jesus.
"So, you are trying to arm yourself because the Tottenham fans are saying, 'Well, we have Bissouma now, Richarlison, [Harry] Kane, then [Rodrigo] Bentancur is going to kick in and we have seen what [Cristian] Romero is about'.
"When you look at how Tottenham can flex when they are doing it under this manager, it kind of makes me feel s***."
Conte is set to unleash Richarlison in a front line that includes two of the best forwards in the world in the form of Harry Kane and Golden Boot winner Son Heung-min.
Wright also mentioned Arsenal's transfer window as a positive, with Marquinhos, Fabio Vieira, Matt Turner and Gabriel Jesus already in the door.
Arsenal will be competing in the Europa League this season after slipping to fifth in the final few weeks of the season, with a Champions League return the priority.
