Arsenal legend Thierry Henry feels Arsene Wenger is reluctant to splash £70million on a top quality defender.

The North Londoners managed to overhaul their team in the winter transfer window despite facing a tough situation considering the uncertainty surrounding German Mesut Ozil and Chilean Alexis Sanchez.

The Gunners signed Armenia international attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan in a direct swap deal that saw the Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez seal a move to rivals Manchester United in January.

The north London outfit spent a club transfer record £56million fee on Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on winter transfer deadline day to replace Alexis Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger made the decision to offload the likes of Francis Coquelin, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud to raise over £40million before the arrival of the Gabonese.

However, Arsenal boss failed to tackle the club’s defensive issues despite Arsene Wenger’s defense conceding 36 times in 27 matches in the English Premier League this season.

Former striker Thiery Henry feels Arsene Wenger doesn’t believe splashing £60million or £70million on a central back represents good value.

The gunners finished in the fifth position in the English Premier League log last term to miss out on a place in the UEFA Champions League.
