Many Arsenal fans are fuming after hearing the news that chief Raul Sanllehi has suggested that transfers are not a priority in the summer, according to Evening Standard.
As per the article, the head of football hosted a weekly video call with all non-playing members of staff, aided by chief executive Vinai Venkatesham.
The Spaniard is understood to have explicitly played down the prospect of expensive signings in the next transfer window and said that signings are not considered a priority at present.
Echoing Sanllehi, the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust (AST) yesterday warned members not to expect big spending in the summer transfer window following extensive analysis of the potential impact of the shutdown on the north London club’s finances as a result of the pandemic, as per the report.
These Gooners were fuming when they heard the news on Twitter, including one who claimed that owner Stan Kroenke has dodged his responsibilities again whilst another AFC supporter labelled Sanllehi as a ‘fraud’:
We will never be the same until our owners spend money from their pocket. We’re going to slide further and further at this rate. It’s sad to be a fan atm.

Kroenke dodges responsibilities again. Miss Europe for a few years and he will sell us. Thats the only solution
