Lack of transfer funds is why top managers are not interested in becoming the next Arsenal manager.
The Gunners are one of the most popular clubs in the world and they would have had to choose from several high profile targets in times gone by, but they are struggling to get a top manager now.
A report in the Mirror claims that the Gunners’ top targets to take over their managerial seat permanently are being put off by the perceived lack of backing from the club’s board.
Arsenal did spend over £100 million during the last transfer window, but they remain one of the big teams in England who don’t enjoy splashing the cash, and the report claims that unwillingness to spend has put off their managerial targets.
Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Martinez have both been linked with the club, but the duo have committed their immediate future to Leicester City and Belgium respectively.
No top manager would want to take over the Arsenal job if he isn’t promised more than enough funds to turn their season around.
It has to be said that the funding issue is a real one in my opinion. Arsenal is hardly known for spending big and anyone looking at the squad right now knows a lot of money needs to be spent to turn this mess around.
You cannot blame any manager refusing to take the job on if the board are not going to back them in the transfer window.
Chances are they will go cheap and employ a young untested manager that wants to try and prove himself. Wonder who that could be?
