The North London club have evidenced significant improvement under the tutelage of Mikel Arteta who also recently helped the side win the Community Shield.
Arteta has already managed to steer Arsenal to a fine start, having already picked nine points to sit fourth on the standings.
They have won three of their four matches of the 2020/21 season, with their only defeat thus far coming in the hands of champions Liverpool.
Wenger, who left the club as manager after 22 years in 2018 has now backed his former side to continue the resurgence and finish on a high.
The Frenchman noted Arsenal could be the league's "surprise package" after they "bought well" in the summer transfer window. Wenger told The Guardian
"But I’m convinced Arsenal can be in the top four, if not more. Why not more? They can be the surprise package for me this year: they bought well, they strengthened the defence well. They have every ingredient and no real weakness."
Arsenal completed a number of amazing deals in the just-closed window, bringing in a number of players.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo could have been an Arsenal player before Man United got ahead of the Gunners to sign the Portuguese star, Arsene Wenger claims.
The Portuguese star is now regarded as one of the greatest the game has ever produced when he joined the Red Devils from Sporting Lisbon in 2003.
He won three Premier League titles in a row and a Champions League victory before he left for Real Madrid in 2009.
