Arsene Wenger has claimed that he has as much money to spend as he wants, as he looks to go one position better next season.
Arsenal capped off an extremely passionate finish to the season by snatching second-place in the table from neighbours Tottenham. Their 4-0 win yesterday was enough to leapfrog their near-rivals as they went onto get embarrassed by already-relegated Newcastle United 5-1.
The Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has now claimed that he has all the funds wanted to strengthen in hope of winning the Premier League title next year.
He said: “Stan Kroenke is completely behind myself and the board investing as much money as we want. It has to be in respect of a balanced budget, we have resources but the problem is finding players. Everybody has money in England and they’re all after good players.
“The good players aren’t legion, you have to be shrewd and be a little bit lucky.”
The club are already believed to be close to completing deals for both Granit Xhaka and N’Golo Kante, although it is not yet known whether they will follow through with both central midfielders.
A striker is also expected to be brought in, with Danny Welbeck having been ruled out for the next nine months, although an additional option up front was on the wishlist of Gunners fans prior to his succumbing to injury.
Wenger has previously stated he has funds to spend however, and he has still failed to strengthen satisfactorily, and we have now gone 12 seasons without picking up the coveted PL trophy.
If Wenger could sign any realistic target, who would you take? Do we trust Wenger to bring in a big striker finally this summer?
