Arsene Wenger not scared to spend by AH
Arsenal manager Arséne Wenger has told reporters that he isn’t afraid to spend the money Arsenal have in the bank – if the right player(s) are available. Arsenal are often slated for their lack of spending in the transfer windows and although we bought fantastic players in Santi Cazorla, Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, we sold Robin Van Persie and Alex Song, totalling up the money exchanges to about a loss of around £15 million.
This is an improvement for Arsenal, who normally make a profit through their transfer window dealings overall. This leads to pressure on Wenger and the board, from fans, the media and for the first time players. And today Wenger told reporters;
“We want to spend our money in the right way. We are not scared to spend the money”
“With some clubs we can’t compete on certain players – and for the rest, we only want to bring in players who add something to our squad and give a chance as well to the young players we have.”
“We have good players, because to buy one more, we have to get one out.”
“Our numbers are good. Under the actual circumstances this is quite positive because the whole (global) environment is not positive.”
“We are very lucky because we have a good support and the income of our gates is very high. We have to maintain that by keeping our fans happy and to continue to manage well in the way that we do it.”
I don’t want Arsenal to become a rich filled club, that buys anyone they can and build up huge debts, but I do think it’s possible to sign a few more quality players by shelling out a few more million every transfer window. Arsenal reportedly has £50 million in the bank set aside for Transfer purposes. It would be great for Arsenal fans to see that used to win some trophies.
