The Arsenal manager has brought in Granit Xhaka as the highest-profile
signing so far, but he isvnot ruling out other lucrative moves should
the right deal comes through.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stressed
that he is ready to spend big if the right
candidate becomes available.
The Emirates side secured the services ofGranit Xhaka before Euro 2016
to get their transfer business underway and have since brought in
promising youngsters Takumo Asano and Rob Holding to further add to
the team.
Wenger has received his fair share of criticism for his failure to
bring in a high-profile centre-
back and striker, though, as their Premier League rivals have spent big.
Moreover, the Arsenal boss has made it clear the Gunners are not done
on the transfer market themselves just yet either. After the 1-1
friendly draw with Lens Wenger told the club's official website that
"We have already spent big. 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 the arsenal manager said. 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.
"Until now, nobody has spent more on a transfer than we have in this
country. Even if [Paul] Pogba might fly from Italy to England
today, I don't know..."
Up Gunners!
