Arsenal look set to rebuild their first team squad this summer, with midfield trio Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini leaving the club and the fans restless following another failed Premier League title bid.
That will require substantial investment in the transfer market, with the rest of the Premier League’s top clubs also tipped to spend big during the coming transfer window following Leicester City’s shock title win.
And Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists the controversial Stan Kroenke is prepared to provide the funds, despite his role as majority shareholder coming under criticism in recent years.
As quoted by Mirror Football, the Frenchman said; “Stan Kroenke is completely behind myself and the board investing as much money as we want.
“It has to be in respect of a balanced budget, we have resources but the problem is finding players. Everybody has money in England and they’re all after good players.”
And the British publication claim that the money will be spent on three new additions – Leicester City enforcer N’Golo Kante, Borussia Monchengladbach skipper Granit Xhaka and a striker who can step in for the injured Danny Welbeck.
