The Premier League is set to to agree a new six-year US TV rights deal which will see them bring in two billion dollars into the division, with Arsenal to get their fair share of the profit.
The Gunners were the biggest spenders in the summer as they looked to overhaul their squad, and bring themselves back into contention for the European places, and that appears to have gone to plan thus far.
That splurge may well be offset somewhat by a new TV deal which the Premier League are believed to be closing in on, with NBC, CBS and ESPN believed to be bidding for control over the fixtures between 2022 and 2028.
The English division continues to bolster it’s ever-growing grip on world football with another blockbuster deal, which is expected to be around double what we made in the previous negotiations, the BBC reports.
They claim that the playing times of our matches avoiding those of America’s other major sporting events is a huge plus for our commercial rights, while other countries are less in line with their later kick-off times.
It remains to be seen how much of this increased income will become available to the hierarchy in charge of signings, but with our recent impressive record in the transfer market, it wouldn’t be a huge shock if we were allowed to spend a little more if that expense continued to bring improvements for us in the division.
