Arsene Wenger Confirms He’s Ready To Buy
By Football Talk.
Arsene Wenger has stated that Arsenal have never been in a better financial position and the club can now buy the players needed to win trophies.
The Arsenal boss highlights that building the Emirates Stadium restricted his moves in the transfer market in recent years, but now he can buy the players he feels the club need in order to overtake current premier league leaders Chelsea next season.
Wenger confesses Arsenal will still not be able to compete with clubs like Chelsea in terms of player wages, although he doesn’t see that as a particular problem.
“I think we can overcome [Chelsea],” he said. “For a while we were not investing maybe because we had built the stadium but I think our financial situation is now becoming much stronger and we will be capable to buy the players we need to buy.”
“No we cannot [compete] on wages with Chelsea. That is simple. I believe what is not normal is not our wage bill but their wage bill because that should not be allowed.
“However they cannot all go to Chelsea, it is as simple as that. There are top players outside of the ones Chelsea want to buy who are good enough for us.”
It certainly seems as if Arsene Wenger is gearing up for a busy summer in the transfer market, but it remains to be seen if he will sign the house-hold names that some Arsenal fans are crying out for.
