Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud insists the Gunners can challenge for Premier League glory next season.
The north London club fell way short of champions Manchester United last season and only secured a place in the top four on the final day of the campaign.
Arsenal have not managed to secure the Premier League crown since 2004 but boss Arsene Wenger has been handed a big budget to strengthen this summer.
Giroud insists the Gunners can be title contenders next season and punters may wish to use their free bet to back Arsenal to take the top prize.
"If we start better than we did this season, I know that we will compete for the title next year because we are used to playing together now and have improved as a team," the Frenchman told the club's official website.
"We have also improved as individuals throughout the season, especially the newcomers like Santi [Cazorla], Lukas [Podolski] and me.
"It is a massively important season with a lot of challenges.
"I also want to really establish myself with Arsenal and make a name for myself here."
