Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed the club would spend big this summer should they find the right players.

The club’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis, yesterday also assured fans that the club is ready to compete in the transfer market.
Wenger said: “I am sure that my chief executive didn’t want to dampen the expectations on that front. We are very active. If we find the right candidates then we will spend the big money. We have already spent big, Until now, nobody has spent more on a transfer than we have in this country. Even if Pogba might fly from Italy to England today, I don’t know… Overall we have made a big investment already but we are active.
“I wouldn’t like to come out on names because if you don’t get them afterwards, people ask why. We are active, very active every day and it’s not over. Today we are on July 22 and the transfer market finishes on August 31. You know that a lot happens in the last week, so it’s a long time to go, but we are active and we are working.”
Wenger is reportedly in search of a striker and it is believed he is willing to spend big to bring one to the Emirates before the start of the season.
