Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Football Journalist Jim White has revealed that Arsene Wenger has more than £200m available to him for new players.
Wenger has often been criticised for not spending big in the transfer market to strengthen his squad but he has always defended himself by claiming lack of funds.
But Jim white in an interview with Talksport has revealed that the Gunners have more than enough money in the bank to smash the transfer record.
“What is the owner doing? What is the priority?” White said on talkSPORT, as quoted by the Daily Star.
“In the bank, in cash, there is £226.45m.
“Is there another team in England with that much cash?”
I don’t know White’s source but if his claims are true then this raises questions about our ambition as a club.
Stan Kroenke who is the majority shareholder will have to tell us if he is running the club to make profits or to win titles.
Although we can’t tell if White’s claims are false or not but Arsenal’s activity in the last summer transfer window points to the fact that his claims may be true.
For the first time in almost a decade, we spent close to £100m on new signings last summer without making any major sale, one may be tempted to ask where did all that money come from?
Gooners will be looking forward to the next transfer window with keen interest and could turn at the club if it fails to live up to expectations.
