David James believes Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger needs to change his coaching setup
Wenger yesterday signed a new two-year contract with Arsenal despite a season of disappointment in both the Premier League and Champions League.
The Gunners have not won the league title since they went the whole campaign unbeaten in 2004 and were knocked out of the last-16 of the Champions League for the seventh consecutive season.
James believes Wenger's coaching style has been the problem and bringing in a new face can help them challenge for major honours.
"There is an element of his coaching which is possibly now out of date hence the reasons Arsenal aren't challenging for titles," the former Liverpool goalkeeper said on Arsenal Fan TV.

Who is Arsene Wenger tipped to sign this summer?
If Arsenal get seven players playing at a better level, they're challenging for titles. That's just simple, that's the way I look at it
David James on Arsenal
"I think to get in a young, eager, hungry, talented coach, and when I say young, younger than Arsene, to come into Arsenal and work alongside Arsene Wenger, then you're going to get the best out of the likes of (Mesut) Ozil, the likes of (Aaron) Ramsey, the likes of (Olivier) Giroud.
"Then Arsenal will be challenging for leagues again."
James is adamant Wenger can win the league in the next two years and believes spending big in the transfer market isn't the right answer to do it.
"100 per cent (they can win the league under Wenger again)," he added.

David James doesn't think Arsenal should spend big money on signings this summer
"This is the most important thing, look at the quality of that Arsenal side. He brought in (Petr) Cech, he got Ozil, you've got Giroud, Ramsey, I love Ramsey, (Theo) Walcott is a player people don't have enough love for, that's my opinion.
"When you've got someone else going in to do the coaching, then you're going to get the best out of four, five, six, seven players.
"If Arsenal get seven players playing at a better level, they're challenging for titles. That's just simple, that's the way I look at it.
"It's about improving the players you've already got to start with, not having to go out and spend £30-40million on someone else."
