Arsenal fans not to expect lavish spending in the coming transfer windows, despite the club agreeing a bumper £150m sponsorship deal.

Fly Emirates are the North Londoners’ main backers, having previously secured naming rights to the Premier League team’s stadium and a place as the main shirt sponsor.

This deal has now been extended, and improved, in a financially rewarding move for the Gunners.

Fans of the club want larger investment in playing staff after seeing star names such as Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabragas leave due, in part, to Wenger’s strict salary limits.

However, the Frenchman has warned supporters not to expect any marquee signings in the near future:

“If we get that amount of money from sponsors it is not charity, it is because the sponsors feel that we act in the right way and with the right values. “ He is quoted by The Metro.

“It is down to us to spend the money in the right way.”

The likes of Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud arrived during the summer for large fees, but most of the investment was offset by the sales of van Persie and other first-team squad members.

Followers of the Emirates Stadium-based outfit have become increasingly frustrated in recent years, suggesting that Wenger’s cautious approach with the chequebook has made Arsenal a ‘selling’ club.

Fabregas, Alex Song and Thierry Henry have left to join Barcelona in recent times, whilst a number of other stars have also departed in search of greater financial rewards.

    Where in those quotes does Arsene say he won’t spend the money? Spending it in the right way does not mean that he won’t spend, just that he won’t spend needlessly. All headline and no content…POOR.
